When I travel to Managua I stay in an hotel very close to Zacatelimon. So the location works great for me, and I'm sure it also does for many others. The place could have a more comfortable ambience, but I still like to bright and clean decoration. I have been to Zacatelimon mostly for quick meals, and everything I have... More

Ask for the chicken bacon wrap at lunch!!nice place good service and cool crowd. The bathrooms are clean with good space and nice setup. The dessert was great tried two different ones and the gluten free was amazing. Congrats good job to the owners and Nicas for having that spot.

Made my first trip to Zacatelimon earlier this month and I can't wait to go back. Enjoyed delicious chicken sandwich with fries for lunch and I have to say that the breakfast menu looks very tempting. Service was outstanding - I can't wait to go back.

We wanted to hold our Spanish classes here, but we left early. It seemed to be the kind of place that rich Nicaraguans visit to make an appearance. The food is unnecessarily complicated, probably to make the customer think it is something special. This is not the place to get a simple cappucino and read or have a conversation. The... More

Good restaurant with excellent food and service. Good people watching of the managua families and young groups. Hip, young, family. Only negative would be that a few people (guests) have attitudes and don't treat the staff well.

We arrived in Managua after a painfully long bus journey and just wanted a light meal. We came across this bright, clean restaurant like a beacon in the dark across a busy, nondescript road, dodging a tarantula along the way. There are vegetarian options, clearly marked, and the food was fresh and tasty. I had a tomato soup, salad, and... More

Awesome quesadillas, both the vegetarian (mushroom) and chicken incarnations, with a lovely guacemole and green salad all at a price that is high for the country, but worth it for the standard. Excellent coffee too, and a lovely ambience complemented by attentive and friendly staff and good wifi. Will gladly return. (Parking's not great though - there arent many spaces... More

If you are feeling like a very "American" dish, like waffles and whip creme or pecan pie, this is one of your best options. The restaurant is stylish (which I don't are about) and to me the prices are reasonable.

After a bit of a search through Managua (because their address is stated wrong in TripAdvisor) we found the café. Let me tell you it was worth the scouts adventure to get there. Best Nica pasteries and cakes! Great service and wonderfull staff! An absolute go-to when in Managua Note: the correct location is near Club Terraza / Centre Commercial... More
