The inside of this coffee shop is interested but I think the entrance door takes the award for most interesting piece of article at the store. The coffee is high quality and the various methods of extraction are commendable. I would highly recommend the full immersion coffee and try some of their pastries as they looked quite delicious.

We visited this Café at an off-time with friends when craving for coffee and sweets, and were very well attended and satisfied with Macondo's creative offers and ambiente. Would love to come back for evening happenings.

I love Macondo! Its best feature isn't just its delicious food or great ambiance, but its Cine Gratis (Free Movie Theater) every single night. Such a great idea!

Macondo have a cute little cinema out the back which I believe they show movies every night except Saturdays. There is no cover charge and you can order drinks and food at the beginning of the movie. Coffee and desserts are perfect and the staff are lovely.

I come here often to have coffee and enjoy the good vibes of the place. Definitely the best espresso in Cali!! My girlfriend loves the amazing Limonada de Café" a refreshing combination of lemon juice and espresso

i really like this place because u can listen to jazz while you are having a coffe. its very cultural and bohemian. however, i didnt like the food that much, but i guess its nothing compare with the nice time ull spend there. i suggest to go for a coffe or ice cream and eat in another place.

Feels like a trendy European cafe. Good coffee but the prices are very high compared to what you can get locally
