The bonsai has great bread, great hummus and great tapas. I think the breakfast menu could use some improvement by adding spreads to sandwiches and in general making the dishes a bit more rich, especially for the prices there... Service is great.

it's not so easy to find something good in Taganga. Bonsai is a nice little place perfect to enjoy a good coffee and some homemade fresh bred (very difficult at the coast side) and brwonies...

All the food and juices here are amazing but I would come back again just for the bread! The best I've had outside Europe without a doubt. Also, don't miss the mojito night!
