Stopped into buy coffee to take home. 30% off bags of beans when you buy 6. Iced cappuccino was very good and I had a 'mixto' batido that was refreshing on a hot afternoon. The bathrooms were exceptional for Matagalpa.

The menu is a short list of salads, paninis, and other fair that is in no way representative of Nicaraguan cuisine. It's menu is also small which begs the question why call it selección nicaraguense when, in fact, it's neither. The air conditioning is nice...More

Fun place to have a meeting or a quiet place to rest. Great coffee and coffee drinks! Limited food menu. Air conditioning is a great respite from the Nicaraguan heat!

During our week-long stay in Matagalpa, we made it a point of coming here almost every afternoon to just sit in air-conditioning and relax. They offer a daily "promoción" for 100 córdobas (about $4) with a featured drink and a dessert. They feature coffee locally...More
