Wonderful environment and the air conditioning is prime!! The peanut butter and coffee milkshakes were probably 2 of the best milkshakes I've ever had in my life. Also the pesto chicken sandwich is to die for. You have to try!!

Delicious breakfast option. Especially the yogurt with fruits and Colombian eggs. Nice choice of sandwiches too. Wasn't sure about the bread though..It was too dense for me. Anyhow you should try it for yourself really recommend it!

Amazing coffee which is actual first grade Colombian coffee (very hard to find in this region) also had a cinnamon swirl which had literally just come out of the oven and was the tastiest cinnamon swirl I had ever eaten!

Hi there! no, we do not accept credit cards! We hope we will be able to offer it in the future! There is 1 cash machine in Taganga! Always think ahead as it often does not have any cash left....
