Breakfast - Edit

I had breakfast in this place with bread, scrambled Tofu and Mushrooms. And it was very good! There are a lot of vegan dishes and they are marked in the menu.

Pros: excellent food

Best of Cartagena - Edit

You need to go if you're in Cartagena and looking for something vegan. My go-to was the mushroom toast served with hummus. One time it was pretty pink beetroot hummus and another time not. It was still delicious. Also they have almond milk for your coffee needs! I saw they also have a tofu scramble and an arepa stack that could be ordered without egg. So there are a handful of vegan options. And we can't be too picky, we're in Colombia!! Prices are normal for this type of cafe catering to tourists.

Pros: almond milk, mushrooms good coffee, location, friendly staff, good cause

Nice, but room for improvement - Edit

I love the concept of Cafe stepping stone, but visiting it was one letdown after another.

First of all, closing at 5pm every day is really early, especially when Cartagena comes alive only after 6... If they stayed open until 9 I think they would be a big hit.
I tried to visit the first day, but they were closed for renovations.
So I visited the next day, and I ordered the vegetarian burger and a salad (I told them to remove the aioli sauce to make it vegan). However, my server could not understand english, and brought me the burger with the aioli sauce.
It's dissapointing that a vegan-friendly place like this has servers who can't understand how to make options vegan.
Overall, I would go back because the food was good, but this cafe seems really unorganised and lacking something, idk.

Pros: vegan options in colombia

Cons: Not all servers know english, Might get non-vegan food instead

delicious Aussie style brunch! - Edit

As an Aussie who lives in rural Canada I’ve been missing my Aussie style breakfast and brunch. This place nails it. Had the best almond milk flat white I’ve ever had too. Cocktails are also great. I had the vegan option smashed avocado toast and (omni) hubby had arepa topped with avo and egg. Amazing meal, great value and they are doing a great thing for the community with their internship program - vegemite is available on request too

Pros: Aussie style brunch, delicious coffee , many non vegan options can be veganized

Wonderful cafe! Several vegan options clearly marked! - Edit

Wonderful cafe in the Getsemenai neighborhood of Cartagena, a quick 10 min walk from the center of the historical district. This is a social enterprise cafe started by 3 Australians that employs disadvantaged Colombians and teaches them important skills so they can go on to better jobs! The vibe is laid back and friendly. There are several dishes clearly marked vegan and in talking with one of the owners I found out that 2 of the 3 owners are vegan, so this is legit! In a city where vegan options are hard to find, I highly recommend seeking this place out - not just for the food but also to support its great mission. We went there twice and I would return in a minute.

Pros: Several vegan options, Friendly staff, Pretty environment

Cons: I would love a vegan take on a Colombian dish or 2

Great place with a good cause - Edit

Beautiful cafe that employs local people to train them in hospitality and food preparation to give them a better future.
Almost all dishes can be veggie or veganified. Very tasty. Loved the asian noodle dish and the cold drip coffee with vegan milk. Can highly recommend. Would have given 5 stars but only possible for vegan only restaurants on happy cow.

cute cafe with a cause - Edit

Comfortable and casual spot with air conditioning, free wifi, English and Spanish menus.
Not entirely veg, but one of the owners (a very friendly Australian gal) says the chef herself is vegan. Almost anything on the menu can be prepared veg. Vegan or vegan substitute options are clearly listed on the menu.
I really love that is not only a great cafe (the cold brew coffee is delicious) but they also employ and train local youth as part of a non-profit.
The owner days they've only been open a month.

Pros: Los of vegan options, good coffee, English menu, f
