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.

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!

Coffee and food is excellent here. My friends and I stayed in Taganga for almost 5 or 6 days and came here to eat 4 times! That should say enough. :D
