Good Colombian coffee, various sorts, from the light to the stronger kind of Colombian coffe. I liked the Chocolate-coffee. Convenient and less expensive than Starbucks (although set-up and ambience less cosy).

Nice ambiance, nice coffee, prompt service. I enjoyed Juan Valdez Cafe! The one I went to was on the outside of a mall, near the road, but didn't feel like that at all. It was quite cozy and you were able to have a good conversation. There were various types of coffee, and I was able to have mine with... More

As a big fan of 'café con leche' in Spain I found the South American version to often be too milky. Ordering a 'flat white' in Juan Valdez proved to be just the coffee I was looking for.

With good pour-over places dedicated to regional coffees, with a bit of a search you may be able to get better coffee near a Juan Valdez, but Colombia has yet to be overrun by indie coffee shops offering freshly roasted beans extracted to perfection. So Juan Valdez is a decent alternative

You can have a good experience, drink a good coffee but the prices are very high. The drinks are good, but food (empanadas) don't impress me.

The concept was copied from Starbucks but Starbucks says explicitly it's Chai latte (which I don't like), Juan Valdez doesn't + they force cinnamon even when you ask without. They do not refund. I give them a 2 only because my friends moderately liked the coffee.

The coffee, the ambience, the side dishes, all were simply amazing. The whole experience was wonderful and I'd spend quite a few evenings in this cafe.

I love the way Colombians used to make coffee with, just regular coffee.I dislike very much a strong coffee, I grew up drinking smooth delicious coffee.Here in New York is quite difficult to find a place were the coffee contain is not overpowered, just right....most of the time coffee is prepared as expresso / European style.It seems to me it...
