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.

Boulevard Sésamo

by Alex on Jan.12, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Vegetarian restaurant and products
Avenida Jiménez No. 4-64
La Candelaria
Set meals from 7,000 COP

Usually at least 2 set meals – 3 courses and juice. Also sell vegetarian sausages, burgers and tofu. The food is tasty filling and varies on a daily basis. . Service is fine, nothing special about the atmosphere – more functional that anything else. For a more homely ambience go to Quinua y Amaranto, about 7 blocks away

El Chorro de Quevedo

by Alex on Jan.11, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Colonial plaza
Calle 13 with Carrera 2a

A picturesque colonial square surrounded by restaurants and often the setting for street performances. Callejón del Embudo – funnel alley, that runs north from the square (Carrera 2 on the map), is home to many chicha bars, a corn-based beverage that must be tried as part of your visit to Colombia – don’t drink too much, it’s said to give quite the hangover!

Cosy (not as in small) up-market restaurant and bar often with rose petals lining the entrance and stairs, which is nice…

La Rosita

by Alex on Jan.11, 2010, under What to do in Bogotá

Restaurant
Chorro de Quevedo
Carrera 2 with Calle 13
La Candelaria
(1) 283 6737 (landline)
311 533 2700 (mobile/cell)

To call a landline from a mobile/cell in Colombia prefix the landline number with 03 followed by the region code. For Bogotá prefix with 031

A lovely eatery spread over 3 floors on a pretty square with fountain. There is an open fire on the first floor and live music on Saturdays on the 2nd floor. The home-made deserts are very very good – I often go here for desert after having eaten at home. Their deserts can be also bought to take away from a shop at the side of the restaurant.
