Afternoon "Cortado" or Nightcap in Historic Yungay
On a typical corner in historic Barrio Yungay, Boulevard Lavaud, colloquially known as Peluquería Francesa, is a quirky café-restobar taking you back to another era. Sitting above the old barber shop, where older men in the "barrio" still come to have a cut and shave, the restaurant is flanked with old photos, mirrors, and a myriad of antiques. Patrons roll in for afternoon coffee and cake or a light lunch. In the evening, the place fills up as a gathering spot for cocktails and snacks.
