Went there with a friend for coffee and had a latte. I guess this was the best coffee I’ve had in Southamerica in the last couple weeks! Very nice ambiance and nice staff! Quiet neighborhood as well. Really recommend it.

We discovered this little cafe on our second morning in Buenos Aires and have been back four times. The cafe con leche is superb, so smooth and almost sweet, completely without bitterness. The cafe staff is Colombian and so is the coffee. Everyone is friendly...More

I visited this wonderful cafe and had amazing coffee (flat white and espresso). Coming from Australia, I'd highly recommend their coffees. Also had a great muffin (piña) which was the best I've ever had. The employees and owners were also very friendly!

Lo especificamente colombiano es el café. En cuanto a las comidas, lo único propiamente colombiano son las almojábanas.
