We discovered this place by accident even though it is around the corner from our friend's business. In fact, I had just wanted to see the new gelato place. However, the Taste of Columbia was very inviting. You can get the usual selection of coffees, which are quite acceptable. However, the wheat-free pumpkin muffin was outstanding, and the I like pies onion cheese scone was also pretty good too.

It is the atmosphere of this place that really ales it worthwhile. It is a local place; people come in and seem to know each other. We were quite happy to linger. The cafe also offers a lot of classes - yoga, salsa, Nia to name a few - and a few speaker series. How can you do yoga in a cafe? They provide the space. When you finish your coffee and muffin, you are right on e water, which makes for a very pleasant walk.

A very friendly, relaxing venue offering excellent coffee. Just off the quay and a good spot to break from a walk around the waterfront.

Went were going through the area and quickly googled a place to stop for coffee. We found Taste of Colombia and we were warmly greeted. Service was quick and the espresso was excellent. Glad we found this.
