Coffee is very good as are the fresh pastries. Good WIFI and great staff, a better alternative than Cafe Juan Valdez which is across the street

One of my favorite things to do on my visit to Cartagena was to visit this quaint cafe for breakfast. The food, service, and value for the money made it a wonderful experience each time. I highly recommend this clean and beautiful space for meals-- especially breakfast!

The food here is exceptional, super delicious. The fresh baked croissants are out of this world. We tried the pancakes, the eggs benedict, and the omelet filled croissant. What set the experience off was the poor service. The servers are overwhelmed and not so experienced on hospitality. We wanted to return again to eat the delicious food, but we're completely...

Its a house of pancakes a bit posh! Great food and service! Juice is not fresh, but pancakes are just perfect with bakon and fruit a side and a grain coffee to start the day.

I ended up eating here several times during my stay in Cartagena as it was my favorite place. The outside photo does not resemble the present storefront. It is clean and modern and well staffed. It also has wifi. I enjoyed breakfast one morning having their version of eggs Benedict. The perfectly pouched eggs were served on a fresh baked... More

The staff was really helpful and nice. They have a wide variety of dishes and deserts. The bread is just amazing and the place makes you feel like you were eating at home. Totally recommended.

Cartagena doesn't have many breakfast options and this place really does the job! We had pancakes with bacon, coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice and an eggs benedict, the pancakes weren't that good but I highly recommend the eggs benedict. The breakfasts are about 20,000 but with 2 drinks so it's worth it. They also have lots of pasteries!

We were looking for a simple sandwich place with air conditioning, and La Brioche hit the spot. They have a great selection of hamburgers, sandwiches, soups and salads. We opted for a couple of burgers. this place is a clean and friendly spot, with the feeling of a French chain restaurant. Regardless, recommended for a fulfilling lunch.

One would assume that a place like this would hustle out breakfast and snacks, wrong. While the staff was nice and attentive, the food was slow and average. About four tables including mine received their breakfast 20-25 minutes after ordering. With egg and bread as the primary stables of every menu item, the wait for food became bordeline unbearable.
