Bolivian Restaurant Review: Tentaciones Cafe

(Sucre, Bolivia)

The name sounded good: Tentaciones (temptation). It tempted our curiosity enough to lure us in for a breakfast of American-style French toast with sugar and cinnamon, and Mexican-style eggs on tortillas with tomato and onion sauce.

The tomato sauce on the "ranchero" style eggs was very tomato-y and that's about it. It had virtually no other distinguishable flavors. The French toast fared much better, where can you go wrong with that, and the coffee and juices were very good.

In all fairness, Tentaciones is very contemporary and nice looking in a very minimalist sort of way, and the person who took our order did a nice job. We'd heard from a friend that Tentaciones had really good food so it's quite possible breakfast just isn't their forté. The price was certainly acceptable at Bs. 63 (about $9.00) for two.

Tentaciones offers "15 varieties of fresh handmade pasta" according to the July 2011 edition of Visiting Sucre Magazine along with sandwiches, fondue, salads and more. Open Monday to Saturday from 9:00 to 2:00 and from 5:00 to 11:00 p.m.
