Best sandwitch in town! Fresh ingredients on homemade bread and a fresh juice of your choice! If you still got some space left, top it of with a homemade brownie and ice cream! Good coffee! Free wifi, A/C and a friendly staff.

The French owner is a nice guy. This is the best cafe in Taganga. Very good food, pastries and coffee. Right in the middle of town just steps from the beach.

The bonsai salad is amazing, great fresh ingredients. The juices are all amazing (Lulo, Tomate de Arbol, etc!), and the coffee is also delicious. The staff was also very friendly and helped me navigate a "colombian situation" i encountered on my travels.

Great selection of lovely homey type foods. Sandwiches, salads, breakfasts and desserts and coffees. Lots of lovely choices. Chilled out atmosphere with English and Spanish speaking staff. We really liked it here and will hopefully get back!

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....
