A traditional desert, the milhojas, is similar to a Napoleon pastry in the States, but much better than I ever had. They make the pastry when you order so each layer is flaky and crispy. The filling is light and not overly sweet and then the caramel sauce just brings it all together. Totally worth the calories

The best desserts in Villa de Leyva. I recommend the "milhojas" and the "Baily's cake". It worth a visit

This is by far the best place for cakes in Villa de Leyva. Nut pie and carrot cake are specially delicious. Coffee is also good.

A nice place to relax over sweets and a refreshing drink - either a coffee or a jugo natural. We enjoyed a nice treat after a long day hiking around the area. The café was tastefully decorated and offered a good place to watch people as they strolled along the cobblestone. After trying the much lauded milhoja at La Galleta,... More

If you have a sweet tooth and want to indulge yourself with a wide variety of desserts, this is a place to go. Service is not that great but they make up for it with their desserts. Only tried the milhoja but willing to go for a second try.

The service is not the best, but the desserts and the coffee are absolutely amazing. You have to try the Milhojas, it's the best milhojas we've ever tried.

The famous Milhoja is great, totally recommended, you will be very happy with it. I don't give it 5/5 cause I think a famous place like this one has to guarantee having all the stuff in the menu, and unfortunately it was not the case. Well I also have to say I only tasted the Milhoja so I can't recommend... More

If you go to this place please order a Milhoja (serves 2) and coffee. Excellent place to have dessert and unwind for a while.

Pretty much average. Nothing noteworthy. My wife and I were here for some coffee and cookies. The cappuccino was ok but the chocolate chip cookie and the oatmeal cookie were dry and not that good.
