Limenians love desserts. This is not new: official historic records mention that centuries ago there was a Viceroy that tried to put an end to what he used to call “an excessive consumption of sugar, that leads people to laziness, instead of using sugar for making medicines”. Centuries have passed but Limenians still have a very active sweet tooth, so there’s plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can enjoy some of the best Peruvian and international desserts.
So we are listing our choices for the 10 Best Coffee and Desserts restaurants here. Most of these are located in Miraflores, such as Pasteleria San Antonio, in a strategic corner between Miraflores and Barranco. There are in fact three places surrounding the Miraflores Central Park (aka Kennedy Park) like Cafe de la Paz, Cafe Haiti and La Tiendecita Blanca; Cafe Café is only half block away; and there’s News Café, in Larco Avenue (there's another in San Isidro), and of course Mangos Café, located at Larcomar Shopping Center.
If you are hanging around in Chorrillos, you could try Deli Bakery, that still prepares its own bread in the old-fashioned way; in San Isidro or in Surco you can find La Bonbonniere (there’s another in Miraflores, though) and if you are near Chacarilla (Surco) you can explore the desserts at L’Artisan, a place where pastry and art have blended.
