  • A quiet area to relax after a busy day in Bogota. Plus there is free WiFi and a really pretty upper patio.
  • An Open space... Has a bookstore and a Corral Gourmet Restaurant (Hamburguers and fast food)
  • Nice and quiet place to have a nice lunch or to read a book. Right in the middle of downtown Bogotá, next to the historical district of La Candelaria close to restaurants, bars and Plaza de Bolivar (Bolivar square) Don't miss it!
  • Books, books, books everywhere! Especially the books about photography: absolutely fntastic. Loved it.
  • Cozy place. Great variety
