Café Bistro de la Barra

Cafe in Santiago

Worn old floor tiles, a velvet sofa, a 1940s swing and light fittings made from cups and teapots make a quirky-but-pretty backdrop for some of the best lunches and onces (afternoon teas) in town. The rich sandwiches include salmon-filled croissants or Parma ham and arugula on flaky green-olive bread, but make sure you save room for the berry-drenched cheesecake.
