This was my first experience with Columbian breakfast, and I wasn't disappointed. The corn pancakes and egg scrambler were very satisfactory. Our service was good, too, as my coffee cup never was empty.

Our son took us here for breakfast when we were up visiting him over Memorial Day weekend. The food was great! I had the Cachacas Venezolanas (corn pancake) with Cotija Cheese. The waitress warned me they were huge so I just ordered one and it was plenty. She asked me I wanted syrup, but suggested I taste it first. No... More

Was nearby for meeting; traveled a lot to South and Central America but husband likes his American food - this was great for both of us. Food definitely home cooked/ home made. Nice size café, lots of parking available. Not a fancy restaurant - great home cooked food. Other food options for S.America/C.America besides what you find on web -... More

Staying at the Marriott on Washington, next to 35W. Check TripAdvisor and decided to check out breakfast at this place. Easy access, lots of parking east of the building. We walked in from the parking lot, although a shorter journey would be to walk in from Franklin Street. The restaurant occupies the northeast corner of the building. Walking in the... More

My wife and I will be back. Order the empanadas as the salsa that goes with it is flavorful and fresh. They had run out of the Pan de queso but was worth waiting for a fresh batch.

My teenage son and I rode our bikes to Maria's Cafe for a Saturday morning breakfast. The dining room is spacious, so there was a table available in this busy spot. I ordered Maria's Colombian Huevos, and they were very tasty. The corn tortillas and the salsa were particularly delicious (I actually resorted to eating the salsa with a spoon... More

Visited Maria's Café on 3/11/16 for lunch but ended up having breakfast. Ordered the Raisin and Walnuts Pancakes. I am glad I ordered the one cake as they are the size of a dinner plate. It was delicious. My three friends ordered the burger and they were al satisfied. No one of us left a thing on the plate. Just... More

I visit here once in awhile with a friend that lives nearby. I'm always pleased with the freshness and quality of the food. This time I opted for the burger instead of breakfast (which is always great), best, freshest burger I've had in a long time. A+

We went here for breakfast from a recommendation. Get Cachacas Venezolanas with the Cotija Cheese and you will love it we were told. So, we did just that and they were wonderful. We had some with cheese and some without and they were equally good. they have other entrees if you need something more typical, but I recommend what we... More
