La Bodega Verde
Near El Puente de los Suspiros, Lima’s quirky attempt to beat Venice, stands one of the most charming cafes in town. La Bodega Verde is hidden in a leafy backyard on a quiet alley of Barranco, and is the perfect place for those seeking refuge from hectic limeño life. With comfortable sofas and plenty of space, it’s hard not to be tempted to stay for hours. For those who prefer to sip their drinks outside, there are a few wooden tables in the garden. La Bodega Verde is probably the best place in the city to drink tea, they have a vast selection and mixtures from around the world. However, coffee drinkers won’t be disappointed either.
La Bodega Verde explores and reinvents traditional Peruvian foods and flavours. They serve a spectacular cheesecake with aguaymanto, a local sweet and sour fruit resembling a cherry tomato, and lúcuma ice cream made of a creamy, honey coloured fruit adored by the Peruvians.
