This small coffee shop serves really good coffees, lunches and, especially, delicious pies. Staff is super friendly and the space oozes with charm. Additionally the cafe is associated with a socially responsible food bank (see their website). An unexpected low key gem in a quiet location by the train station.
I live far from the city, so I went back after a year, and I had a horrible surprise. Food was not the same. I'm not sure if the cook is not Peruvian anymore but as a Peruvian I can tell you that the Huancaina cream was horrible. Chicken was not as good as usual and Tamales were awful. Also...
It’s a simple cafeteria style Filipino resto that serves homecooked-like meals and it has a Filipino grocery store next to it. The dining area has a tv that shows TFC teledramas, reminds me of how it was in my dorm in the University.
Food servings were big and tasty. I liked the veggie egg rolls and tulingan.
