Not many vegan options - Edit

I visited here before taking a boat Fromm Leticia to Iquitos. Unfortunately most of their food is veggie and not vegan. I had fried plantains with sweet corn and tomato and without cheese. It wasn’t very filling but I was greatful to have somewhere to eat otherwise I probably would’ve had to find some hot water and make some cous cous that’s I brought from home! My veggie friend had the lasagne which we realised is pre-made in individual portions and kept in the fridge until omeone orders it. I wouldn’t go with high expectations but at least it’s an option for us veggie/vegans in what feels like the middle of nowhere!

best avoided - Edit

I came here for dinner and my arrival seemed to be an inconvenience for the owner, although I was the only guest. The meal took half an hour to arrive, and while I waited another man did yoga on a mat behind me.

I don't know why the food took so long to prepare because it turned out to be just reheated and quite dry arepas. Which cost 17,000 COP including a juice.

In Leticia there are some very well stocked supermarkets, I would recommend buying some provisions and making your own meals instead. You can get excellent coffee at The Donut Company however. (Sadly the donuts aren't vegan!)

The only place in town? - Edit

We walked all over Leticia not finding anywhere we were willing to eat until we stumbled upon this place next to the Parque Santander. We ate there twice in two days, at least once for dinner, so i'm not sure if the hours are correct on this listing. The food wasn't super memorable, but nutritious and generally tasty. The service was super friendly--i think they were closing the first night we were there, but threw something together for us with a smile.

Pros: friendly staff, convenient location

Cons: limited menu?

Super healthy but a little bland - Edit

My husband and I went to try out this restaurant for lunch. We had tried to go for breakfast but we were told we had call before hand for breakfast, but that lunch was from 12:30 - 2:30. For $10 mil we got a lot of food - platano soup, a meat made from grains which was really good, some veggies, salad, rice, juice, and a postre. We both really liked the meat substitute and the soup, but the rest needed a little more seasoning. The service was super fast though. I would go back.
