La Finca has a great atmosphere, an ideal place for families and groups. When the cafe is not busy, it is a nice place to linger and relax.
My experience at La Finca was very positive. We were welcomed by the waitress who asked us where we wanted to sit. We picked a table near the window, with a live plant in a container with water. The waitress took our orders and answered all our queries. We ordered burgers with chips, a cappuccino and an iced coffee. We did not have to wait long for our orders to arrive.
The meals were very nice and after finishing my coffee I started to catch up with my forums while my partner ordered another coffee.
