Crepes and Waffles

by Alex on Nov.01, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Crepes and Waffles sell a great range of food, both sweet and savoury and have branches across Colombia, Latin American capitals and even in Madrid

As well as good crepes and waffles, they do salads, ‘pittas’, which are more like pizza bases, and hollowed out loaves of bread stuffed with beef stroganoff, cheese and mushroom and other fillings. The salad bar is great value at 7,900 COP and there are a wide range of deserts with magnificent ice cream which you can buy to take away

It is said that Crepes and Waffles only employs single mothers and although I don’t know the truth of this, I’ve only ever seen women working there

There are many branches throughout Bogotá and Colombia, the full list available on its website, some can be found at:

Railway carriage café place

by Alex on Jan.16, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Corner of Carrera 5 with Calle 14
La Candelaria

I’ve no idea what this place is called but the old railway carriage makes a cool setting for a coffee or a smoothie, I’m pretty sure they do bits of food as well

Café Arte

by Alex on Jan.16, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Carrera 3 No. 13-41
La Candelaria

I’ve not eaten here but it looks very cool inside – a large covered courtyard houses the main eating area on both ground floor and balconies, a separate café area offers a less formal setting for a quick snack.
