You will have fun eating here. Not far from Metro station and just off of La 70. Owners are a fun happy American couple with wife's mom a Colombiana. Homemade breakfast sausage is great and so is everything else. Good food and good fun atmosphere.

Lexi and David are a rad couple of US ex-pats making great American-style breakfast eats in Colombia. Lexi is the cute, funny server and David is the dry, sarcastic chef that those of us who have worked in the service industry have grown to love....More
