For a little pavement café, this place is nice for a quick coffee. They have a good choice of cakes and pastries too. The coffee wasn't the best, but it's hard to find the really good stuff as strangely enough though Colombia produces extremely good coffee, Colombians are not great drinkers of it themselves.

Since it was located in the mall next to the hotel, visited most mornings with my girlfriend for coffee and my favorite, Pastel de Pollo, was good and fresh each morning and the staff were very nice.

This is a Nice place, been around for years, dainty goodies, but too many limits you must buy at least 8000 to use credit card in airport, plus too much bad attitude from server behind the counter, they will not win customers either way, be kind, friendly, sincere, and allow any size credit card purchase, not happy with this place...

They have nice pastries and coffees. Not over the top expensive. Pastry tastes fresh and not too heavy.

This is always a great place to come for a coffee and snack like a pastry or cake. Their variety is extensive with savoury and sweet on offer.

This is a chain located thru out Medellin and Colombia I believe. I have stopped in many times to get a coffee and a snack. The prices are above average for Medellin but still, cheap by NY standards. All the locations are very clean and well stocked.

Thank Jimmydr
