Small cafe with good lunch options. Eating in Colonia is expensive for what it is, but thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon lunch at this cafe. Owner and staff are friendly. Cash only.

I was looking for a quiet place to have a cup of coffee and something sweet and saw the reviews on TripAdvisor, so I gave it a try. I tried the carrot cake that everyone recommended, and although it was expensive, it was one of...More

It's a lovely house and everything invites you to stay for a while. Magazines, comfortable coaches, beautiful garden with view to the river. Tea and coffee very good, great service. Excellent for couples to relax after some day of walk.

Lentas maravillas was discovered while wandering thru beautiful Colonia del Sacramento. You may overlook its very simple, but charming outside - basically, an open house door and a blackboard in front of a typical Colonia residence - but once inside, you will find yourself very...More

Lentas Maravillas isn't exactly a restaurant, it's a coffee shop/tea-room that also serves lunch and occasional private dinners. We are a small venue that sits up to 14 people in our living room and up to 16 people in the garden. We like being small because we can provide better service to our clients. We specialise in gourmet sandwiches and salads in Summer. In winter, in addition to our sandwiches, we make a spicy goulash and a chicken curry...There's also a hot, fiery soup to welcome our clients as they wait for their food to arrive...Desserts are home-made and some of the cakes are a revised version of my mother's Austro-Hungarian recipes.
