The full review for Agora Café

Review by: Ollie O Rating: 4.1 stars Review Date: 11/24/2018

Let’s suppose that you’ve decided to hop on one of those city tour buses that loads up next to Parque Kennedy in Miraflores and want a good cup of coffee and some scrambled eggs before you start that adventure.

You have a couple of choices. I’ve done them both on several occasions. You could try the scrambled egg sandwich at La Lucha with a paper cup of coffee from who knows where. Not a bad choice. But if a nice cup of coffee in a fat ceramic coffee cup and eggs served on a plate, not in a basket, sounds more appetizing, then Agora Café is the logical choice.

It’s located right out in front of that tour bus loading zone, facing the plaza.

It’s a specialty coffee shop with single-origin, organic coffee. Good baristas. Good latte art baristartistas too. My cup had an impressive swan looking back at me as I stared into the delicate, velvety foam at the top of my cappuccino.

The food is pretty basic, but it’s acceptable. I had some scrambled eggs and toast with some packaged butter served on the side.

On the display below the counter, they had some very big empanadas and a Nutella pie that looked inviting. As did the lemon pie crowned with a mountain of merengue.

The ambiance is a bit kitschy, the sort of thing Bob Marley fans really love, which of course means it’s totally un-hip and unpretentious.

Prices for espresso / ristretto shots, at US$1.50 (SOL$5) were the least expensive among the specialty cafés we reviewed.

Chances are you’ll like this place with it’s good coffee, acceptable food and great location.
