We went there for breakfast and were surprised not to find the cafe bistro, as it changed location and no information online or in guides has been updated yet. The new cafe is rather simple and cold, the staff was inattentive, absent, not that friendly and spent most of the time hiding in the kitchen. It took 30min to get... More

This cute little place tucked away has a beautiful view of the lake and we were lucky enough to have watched the sunset! The woman who owns it is very friendly and sweet and speaks 3 languages! I had the French onion soup which was huge and SO good and my boyfriend had the bolognese pasta which was great and... More

After sampling most of the restaurants in Copacabana, we found the best coffee here. Our waiter was very friendly. Quick WiFi too. Check it out!

the first time we came here, they let us in, even though it was closed for a private party. I got a delicious cappuccino with french cream, which they whipped up right there on the spot. The coffee was wonderful & the service was friendly. The second time we went, they were open, & remembered us from a week before.... More

We should have followed our instincts when we arrived at 9.15am for breakfast and the young lady sweeping the floor greeted us with words to the effect of "yes what do you want?". The owner had not yet arrived and without her it seemed that the place was paralysed and not even an order could be taken. When the owner... More

We had just 40 minutes time to grab a meal, and we made the right decision to go there. The spinach soup we had was amazing, but the bread and the butter were extraordinary. The lady who served us (we think the owner) was really friendly and spoke excellent English. If we did have more time we would have tried... More

A quirky venue, top breakfast, great coffee and a generous hostess made this our favorite place to eat in Copacabana. They even do home made baked beans

Cozy, family-owned eatery with quite possibly the best coffee I've tasted south of Colombia. Huge menu with good selection of vegetarian options. Contrary to another review, I found breakfast to be an amazing value, including fresh-squeezed juice, perfectly cooked eggs and jam the owner makes herself. Best part is you'll be treated like family here..

This restaurant in Copacabana is quiet cozy and different other places in this town. The menu is quiet fusion, I had Thai Curry as lunch which is delicious and huge. And meet with rice for dinner with fresh salad, quiet taste and nice also. This upper restaurant the inner design is quiet colorful and has a lot of Colombia feeling... More

We came here during our stay for breakfast and had a full English breakfast and eggs on toast. The food did not live up to the money paid for it, the advertised internet didn't work at all and the service wasn't anything to write home about (even though we were the only customers at the time). All in all there... More
