La Galleta has great desserts and the best espresso in Villa de Leyva. Pros: Best Espresso in town Great variety in coffee drinks Marvellous desserts Nice ambience Cool music Decent restrooms Near town center Amazing service Cons: Not too many desserts on weekdays Only one restroom (Unisex, but it's clean) There should be one La Galleta in every major city...

Quiet little cafe with excellent Colombian coffee and pastries. I had the creme brûlée and cappuccino and both were excellent. Cafe is located in the main plaza and prices are very reasonable. Paintings on wall are for sale.

A small café and pastry place off the main square. It smells of fresh coffee as you pass by and that's exactly what you get, they grind it right at the moment!! The most tasty coffee I had the last days!!!! Tasty desserts too. Absolutely recommended!!

Nice coffee shop, clean and well presented. You can notice the paintings (nice ones) on the wall. We went there twice. First time, we ordered one big cheesecake with maracuja. It was good but I am not a fan of cheesecakes. The other day, I took one portion of avena cake , really good!!! Plus you get WIfi connection for... More

All the desserts they serve are delicious and haven't tried one I didn't like. I really recommend all of them not being able to mention a specific one. They have two sites and I guess I preffer their original one, which is three blocks from the main park on the way to Duruelo (Hotel). Sincerely, you have to try them... More

The coffee is very good, and pretty much all pastries we tasted were delicious... but there are few things in this world as delicious as the home-made miloja they offer. Similar to a Napoleon, it consists of layers of flaky pastry, cream, and caramel sauce. A true delicacy and perhaps the most delicious dessert I have had in a while.... More

Top class cakes available, comfy sofa at the back. Bit of traffic noise coming in from the street. There's another smaller branch couple of blocks up from Calle Calliente which has no sofa but is without the traffic noise.

We were annoyyend for the situation and ask waiters but they say "wait in one minute". I can´t understand the delay when the process is only "cut and put in the dish"... More
