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.

I would totally go there for a good dessert after eating somewhere else. The pace is nice and clean.

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!!

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.

Villa de Leyva has a little coffee and pastry shop that serves up some of the best cheesecake I’ve ever had. I love sweets, so I’ve tried my fair share of cheesecake. The Oreo cheesecake that I tried on this particular day definitely scored in the top 3 all-time cheesecakes that I’ve ever tried. Villa de Leyva is not a... More
