One of the best places in town - Edit

I just can't put in words how much I love this place, every single dish I've had here is delightful, great quality ingredientes, best preparation methods. It's creative yet simple enough to be of like to any kind of palate / diet. I come here almost every week, the food feels home cooked. It's 100% vegan and also soy and gluten free... the owners are amazing people and service is fantastic. The daily menu is a great option and very affordable and I've tried almost everything on the menu, its all great, the pizza one of my faves!

Pros: daily varying menu , affordable and varied, great service

Awesomeness! - Edit

Just had lunch here with my partner. Both of us got the set meal, which included a soup, a juice, and two hardshell tacos. Everything tasted like homecooking and was delicious. All vegan to boot! Staff was very friendly and patient with us despite the language barrier. No español? No worries as they have English-speaking staff. We couldn't pass up the banana and chocolate cakes on display and got a slice of each for dessert. Both were scrumptious, had great crumbs, and were just the right amount of sweet. I particularly enjoyed the bittersweet chocolate chips and the tinge of coffee in the chocolate cake. The whole meal set us back COP 32.000. What a steal! And they take visa/master too.

Pros: great food, friendly staff, credit cards accepted

I love this place! The food is absolutely amazing! Their pizzas are SO good: they make the pizza bread out of quinoa. The burgers are the best I've tasted, very recommendable. You can even get vegan sushi and brownies. The lunch of the day costs 12.500 COP and includes a soup, a "dry" meal and a juice.
I fell in love with this place, the owners are so nice! And the ambiance is very welcoming. Every thursday the lunch of the day is vegan Bandeja Paisa: a very traditional Colombian meal, you should definitely try it.
Though the restaurant is located in the north it's completely worth it taking the trip from the city center.
You can easily take a Transmilenio bus from anywhere in the city center to the National Museum (el Museo Nacional) (the purple route) and from there take the M86, get off at the last stop (Calle 116 - Hacienda Santa Barbara), and from there you can easily walk to the restaurant.

Pros: Food is great, Friendly owners, Very nice ambiance

Cons: NONE

incorrect opening times - Edit

Would have loved to check it out and give a proper review, unfortunately the place was closed at 10am on a Saturday.
Quite disappointing after taking quite a hike to get there. Double checking times is impossible since there is no website.
Too bad!
