Subway style sandwich bar

Posted on 08 / 23 / 2014

This place was ok.

It sells sandwiches, wraps, salads and juices/smoothies.

Sandwiches are Subway-style - choose your bread and the fillings. Nice choice of 'toppings' like seeds and nuts, and dressings.

Helpful staff too, who speaks good EN and looks very cute. :)

USD 6 for a sandwich and USD 7.50 for a plate of veggie salad is a bit much though...

Note, entrance is not on Carrera 3 (as indicated by the address), it is on Calle 7.

Pros: Decent range of veg fillings, extras and
Cons: Bit expensive

I went here for dinner a few days ago. The staff were really friendly & helpful with Little english. I told them i was vegan & they suggested that i try a wrap or vietamese type rolls or salad or soup. I opted for the wrap which was large & cost around 10000pesos & i had 7 or 8 fillings which were amazing. They had amazing salad bar with loads of choices like quinoa, chia seeds etc (see above)& fab juices. I paid 9500pesos for juice with spirulina in it, yes it was expensive but it was pure & well worth it. I really enjoyed this place & left feeling very satisfied. Oh ya they have a great choice of dressings aswell. Pity there arnt more places like this in columbia

Pros: easy to find & healthy food, safe area & clean restaurant, great variety of proteins for vegans
Cons: expensive

Easy for veggies, delicious for all. Lots of choices, and the freshest food we've had in a while. Crazy good drinks too. NOTE: entrance is around corner from address. Not cheap, but fine for the neighborhood. $10-15 per person (18-28.000 COP) with a drink as of Summer 2013.

Pros: variety, freshness, drinks
Cons: none

This is a really nice addition to the Cartagena scene! Perfect for lunch, where you can get a healthy sandwich, wrap, smoothie, or green juice. It's very clean, with friendly staff, and comfortable seating. Not really a dinner place (although you could). This is not located in the walled, Centro part of Cartagena, but in Boca Grande, which is a few minutes away. So, I guess, that would be the only down-side... it's slightly off the beaten path, although there are other things to see in that neighborhood. I had a great conversation with the owners... nice people! They are very health conscious and also interested in bringing value to the community in terms of not only healthy eating, but social and eco issues. I predict this place will be a big success, with other locations opening in the future!

Pros: excellent food, healthier than other local foods, friendly staff
Cons: slightly off beaten path

Cartagena's best location for healthy food!!!!!

Gokela is Cartagena's best spot for healthy food. The salads are delicious and you can create your own or chose from a wide selection. They also have wraps with a wide range of items to chose from- even speciality items like quinoa, chia, cranberry and much more. If your thinking something lite, the vietnamese rolls are excellent and packed with vitamin rich items. To top it off you can compliment your meal with a freshly extracted juice (unlike the common pulp water and sugar variations that are regularly sold in Cartagena), and smoothies made from greek low fat yogurt. If your feeling like you need energy, or memory assistance, protein boost, sleep, sex drive, or just about anything you can add one of their supplements. If your familiar with supplements they have spirulina, acai, gogi, noni, maca, green power, kava, chia, Canadian flax, bee pollen, St Johns wort... So needless to say, this is a great place to get healthy, enjoy the energy of good food, and in Cartagena- escape from the heavy local food. YOU WILL ENJOY, hence why they are constantly number 1 on Trip Advisor...

Pros: Excellent Food, Organic, Good Value
