Very nice, a hidden gem and very nice change of all the fish you eat there. Large salads and good tasting European bread.

Definitely go to Cafe Bonsai even if it's only for coffee and banana bread! Anyone that has spent any time in Latin American countries knows that the traditional bread is absolutely awful. Bonsai can save you! Their European style breads are hearty and delicious. Homemade...More

Delicious breakfast option. Especially the yogurt with fruits and Colombian eggs. Nice choice of sandwiches too. Wasn't sure about the bread though..It was too dense for me. Anyhow you should try it for yourself really recommend it!

Amazing coffee which is actual first grade Colombian coffee (very hard to find in this region) also had a cinnamon swirl which had literally just come out of the oven and was the tastiest cinnamon swirl I had ever eaten!

Amazing food and atmosphere here! Definitely try the salad or the sandwiches (with homemade bread). The salad was super rich, more than enough for a big guy like me!

We went for breakfast and had a coffee but didn't end up having food as compared to other places it was very expensive. The coffee was amazing and I'm sure the food would have been too but not on a traveller budget for us!

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....
