Excelente cafeteria. The best coffe in Colombia you will find here. You can find Juan Valdez in many places. It is the "Starbucks"of Colombia but much better. Don't miss it!

We have been here for 5 days and have gone here multiple times during the day. The coffee is great. So many different kinds of coffee drinks to choose from. The coffee quality is very good. Way better then Starbucks which I'm so glad they do not have here.

Walking in Cartagena's old town, I recognized the world-famous logo of Cafe de Colombia at the door and couldn't resist walking in. I had no idea they're a chain, but the shop in Cartagena has great coffee, is cozy with aircon and has nice staff. They now have some agreement with Oreo biscuits and you can mix both products whichever... More

Visited several stores in the chain in Cartagena, but none had decaf coffee. Their New York City cafe does carry it. Was able to find Americano, a viable substitute, in the GMA chain.

Our tour guide took us to one of this chains locations for coffee and fresh baked Colombian goodies. Very inexpensive, quick and tasty. Much better than a Starbucks.

For the most part this is Columbia's chain Coffee Cafe spot...wide variety if coffee beverages, some food, Free Wi-Fi and space to sit. Of note Cartagena gets pretty hot...so a place with A/C and pretty good coffee comes in handy

I am not much of a coffee person, but the friend I went with LOVED it. They have some food as well as coffee just like (as some reviews have mentioned) Starbucks. For travelers to Colombia, almost all the locations of Juan Valdez offer free WiFi, so that's a great bonus. We would go there and get some snacks to... More

You must have Juan Valdez when you go here. It's much like Starbucks in the US. The coffee is strong, but not bitter like it usually is at Starbucks. Definite must try.

I have being to several Juan Valdez, but the one at the Centro Comercial the Mansion, at bocagrandre is defenetly the best!!, the colonial arquitecture of the house, is the perfect complement of drinking the best Colombian coffee. The service is excellent and the place is always clean. I would say, because of the colonial house and product, that it... More

Juan Valdez coffee puts Starbucks to shame. The quality and the variety is excellent. I liked the variety and the quality of the drinks.
