“A Good Cup O' Joe in Santiago!”
Review of Cafe Caribe

Cafe Caribe
Ranked #87 of 201 Coffee & Tea in Santiago
Cuisines: Cafe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 January 2017

Our tour guide for the day suggested that we stop here for a true locals' experience as well as a good cup of coffee (we've had trouble finding that at our hotel). Good coffee with a fun experience. Our guide kept saying we were going to have coffee "with legs". I thought she was talking about the fact that everyone stands at the counter to enjoy their coffee. When we got to the counter we realized that there is an even better reason for that name. All the servers are women dressed in very short, very tight dresses in high heels. Whether you go for the coffee, the sights or both, definiltey give this Santiago institution a try!

We search for our coffee and this place, Cafe Caribe, is well worth the effort. Lovely staff and not bad pastry options made our visit pleasant.

Great coffee, totally novel concept. The marble bar running around Cafe Caribe is about 4 foot tall outlined in zinc. Behind it, hardscrabble old dames in impossibly tight and short purple dresses sling high quality coffee. Just like Bourdain said, it is a whole different kind of cafe experience.

If it hadn't been for our great private guide, Jorge, we would have never had the chance to experience this coffee shop with local flavor!!!!!! What a treat! Café Caribe is the place to stop for "coffee with legs" as the Chileans call it!!!! The servers are all young, attractive women who wear tight fitting (but tasteful), short dresses with pantyhose and heels!!!!!! The servers walk around on a raised platform behind the marble counter serving the guests who are all basically standing watching these gals in their miniskirts and heels!!!!! What fun! PLUS---the coffee was GREAT and priced very fairly for the great "show"!!. I think my husband and I were both so surprised to experience something like this that I forget if they serve doughnuts! Clean, and safe here, too! (Starbucks, Dunkin Doughnuts watch out!!!!!!)
