Juan David and his mother Marta run this very small cafe...It's easy to miss on the street! we had a delightful time with them and they cook up lovely food and have very good artesenal beers (bottles). Inexpensive and fun! Great value.

This is a legendary little spot for a tasty meal and sensational coffee. The burritos are particularly delicious, and the happy hour beers hit the spot too. It boasts the best service in Bogota - when I was there and the staff overheard it was...More

I make sure I visit Papaya for a bite to eat every time I'm in the Candelaria. You're always guaranteed service with a smile but more importantly the food is top-notch. Very good veggie options for part-time meat eaters like myself and the staff were...More
