We ate here twice while in Taganga, BBQ both times. The BBQ is great value - excellent, juicy meat with wonderful marinades, two choices of potato salads (both are great!), classic salad and home-made garlic bread. The cafe makes their own breads - the sour dough was really good. Very filling meal, well worth the price. We also enjoyed the Mojito Slushies, only $6000COP. Great brownie and icecream, served with real chocolate ganash drizzled over the top. All the ingredients were of excellent quality and the staff were just so friendly. The guy who served us, and cooked the BBQ both nights (didn't catch his name unfortunately) gave us some truly great espresso made from organic beans from the Sierra Nevada, free of charge! Best coffee we had in Colombia! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this cafe to anyone seeking a delicious, quality meal that really satisfies.

I have eaten here many times in the last year and it always the same. The BBQ in the night is so good and I love the mojitos, the best I've had in central/south America. The service is always fast and polite and they speak English. I have also had lunch here and the fresh bread rolls are really good and make a great fresh sandwich. The free wifi is quick. Highly recommend this place :)

Great location with nice atmosphere and awesome coffee. The owner focus on top quality products regardless if its coffee, bread or sweets. The place is expensive, especially the dinner but for me at least the coffee break was all worth it!

Taganga has a good selection of dinner choices, but we kept going back here for their BBQ. All of the dishes on the BBQ menu were fantastic, especially the beef. It is well priced, the portions are good and the food is nicely creative with fresh salads, potato salad and marinated meats. The mojito slushes are great, the coffee is one of the best in Colombia and the hosts are friendly and good company. Highly recommended for dinner.

My friend and I had breakfast here. She had the muesli and I had the egg salad sandwich. A bit too much mayo but excellent bread. Muesli was also good but tiny for the price. Bad coffee and good fruit juices. Probably wouldn't eat here again as there are better value places around.
