3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

Some time ago, it used to be some of my favorite places in Cartagena. But, the last couple of times that I have visited it, the experience has not been the same. Very bad and slow service, and in both occasions someone at the table has returned a dish (something very uncommon in any restaurant), and even the ones that... More

We came here twice in a row and both times we waited for over 30mins for coffee. The staff are run off their feet. The owner should really look at employing more staff.

Pasteleria Mila is a paradise: not only the best salads and sandwiches ever but also awesome desserts. I recommend the Mila Salad and the Marea Salad too, and also the Limonada de Hierbabuena

Go and (try to) score a seat in the evening for amazing pastries and desserts but definitely pop by in the heat of the day for a to-go order of the best Limonada de Coco (fresh coconut and lime slushie) in town!

Mmmmmm. Honestly is the best way to describe this place. It's just so damn yummy! We came in for breakfast. We had gone to three other establishments that somehow, while they all said they were open, were actually closed. Honestly, THANK GOD they were closed so we didn't miss this gem. GET YOURSELF THE LIMONADA COCO! Damn that stuff is... More

Excellent food options! Great place and good service. It is close to the main area in the ciudad amurallada (down town) in Cartagena. I highly recommend it

Food was incredibly slow (took an hour to receive my eggs despite there being 5 other tables in the entire place), but that's the only bad thing I could say about it. Service was lovely, the cappuccinos were delicious, and the desserts looked incredible. Great spot for a leisurely breakfast—just don't make the mistake of being in a rush like... More

Delicious coffee. Excellent breakfast - I took the waitress suggestion and had something like a Benedict on top of an a. It was incredible. The vibe of the place is laid back and comfy. I grabbed a seat by the window - gorgeous view out onto old town Cartagena!

Ila is a sweet and loving idea born in 2006 when I opened my first pastry, bakery and cafe in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Sought to create a place full of details and magic place to accompany the breads, desserts and recipes lovingly created, cooked and always dreamed of. Today, we are located in the walled city and soon will be in Bogota! I always wanted my site covering all tastes and times of my clients, that is why any time of day can come and antojarte what you want. The hope!
