Puro Chilean

Puro wallNOTE:  Closed from March 2018 to Feb 2019 while the building is strengthened.

So just inside the Grand Arcade, Willis Street entrance, is now a Chilean lunch and espresso bar called Puro.

Coffees, an alfajor and cheese bread (scone) hit the mark for a mid-week bolster before work.

The ‘scone’ had a crisp outside and cheesy viscousness inside that was a little different from a normal scone, but well worthy of a return visit.

Puro counterThe coffee came with a cuchufli (pronounced koo-choo-flee, fun!) hollow wafer filled with manjar/de leche. Nice.

The cabinet was filled with tasty (and generous) looking sandwiches, hot dogs and empanadas. They make their own bread on-site and were friendly and welcoming.

Puro coffeeThere’s really only two or three seats (and onsite food is served with plastic plates and cutlery – expedient in washing up terms), so this is most likely to be a takeaway lunch bar for most.

7.30am (Mon-Fri) to 3pm (Mon/Tues) or 4pm (Wed-Fri).
