Each time I eat here I am amazed that it is better than the time before. I enjoy everything I have tried at the Moliendo Cafe. With friends or alone I have never been disappointed. If you have yet to try it, try it as soon as you can. If you have tried it you should try it again.

The food here is AMAZING and so cheap! We had the tortilla/pancake with chicharron, maduro and guacamole and it was literally one of the best meals i've ever had. The prices are so cheap and the staff are great. There's a mix of ex pats and locals. I wish i could eat there every day.

I love the atmosphere and the food is wonderful! I always share my table with someone and we end up having a great conversation. The place is really busy during the lunch hour, often times with a line out the door. You won't be disappointed. The Colombian food is spectacular.

Nothing fancy, but GOOD food. Had lunch there with some people I met, then dinner the same night with my wife...Very friendly. The Consuelo con frijoles was wonderful. Prices VERY reasonable. As we're staying the month just a few doors down, I guarentee we will be back!

Our hostal bunk mates recommended this place just down the street and we weren't disappointed. The chorizo was really tasty but the drinks were the best part - I got the "aphrodisiac avocado" batido and my boyfriend ordered the avena one which tasted like liquified oatmeal cookies... we didn't want it to end! The owners are super friendly too, check... More

I like the owners as they are gracious and attentive. Menu is limited to Columbian food which is good.

Having visited Colombia 2 years we sought this place out and were not dissapointed. A good selection of arepas and all the other favourites. We shared an arepa plate with a bowl of beans and a side of excellent guacamole washed down with lovely fresh lemonade. We plan on returning for breakfast. Tip: closed Sundays, open 9am to 8 pm
