Zarina

Reviewed By Chris G - Bogota, Colombia

I apologise for the reason we were there; it was raining cats and dogs and this was the closest refuge but thank God for the rain!!! Offers a fine range on the menu, we went Middle and Far eastern in our choice, an Arab mixta followed by the Pollo de Curry and Lomo Thai (chicken curry and pork thai style) and the flavours were to die for!!! We visit Villa da Leyva on a monthly basis so will be there again in the very near future.

La Galleta Pasteleria Cafe

Reviewed By cgpabon01 - Northborough, Massachusetts

Excellent variety of freshly made desserts. Good coffee, and prices are relatively ok.
We visited this place 3times while vacationing in Villa de Leyva.
But besides the excellent pastries qualities, the staff need to be a little more friendly ,to smile, and get a little more understanding about the many possibilities of serving coffee.

La Waffleria De La VIlla

Reviewed By Elena U

The emotional factor: I decided to have a belated birthday 'cake', and I was alone (not the most Latin thing to do, right?), so I chose the Wafflería. Best choice! the place is gorgeous, and it has beautirul and comfortable furtiture. The service is great; all the waiters are ready to serve you, paying attention to then they should removed the dishes or offer something else, without being obtrusive. There is a lvie music show with a very talented singer. The place is apt for families, couples, and groups of friends. I ordered a waffle with fruit, oreo cookies, and some incredible mango syrup which happened to include mint, so it was very refreshing! Highly recommendable!
Just beware: waffles can be extremely sweet, so make sure you tell the waiter exactly how sweet or not you want your waffle. They'll make it work.
Definitely a place to go back to. They make you feel at home.

Finally good and decent bread in South America. Prices very decent and the taste is incredible. If you like good bread or miss it during your stay in Columbia this is the right place

Mercado Municipal

Slow food, wood fire ovens, rustic cuisine on a 1800 property with spectacular garden. Bakery, bar, child and dog friendly. Reservation required for high season

Reviewed By MBosma - Minneapolis, Minnesota

Restaurant try to present itself as unique, portions were small and overpriced.
Menu selection is very limited and they don't have menus in English.
Prices are high for what you get and compared to other excellent options in Villa de Leyva.
It was overrated. Very poor service!

I went with my wife and the Deserts are not the same. Coffee isn't good and Deserts are as fair are others that you can find in the town... It is not a "must" anymore!

Chez Remy

Tradicional french cuisine with local ingredients. All the products in the menu are made in our kitchen (bread,noodles, ice-cream, smoked salmon, etc...).

Reviewed By Milclau - Villa de Leyva, Colombia

Very nice restaurant located in the oldest house in la Villa!! Went for lunch with some friends that were in la Villa and wanted something different.
The food was very good and we had salads, crepes sarracin, a delicious potatoes and seafood dish, pasta for the youngest and wines by the glass. The service was a bit slow but we had time. Will go back to try more authentic french food! Tres Bon :-)

La Milhoja Bakery & Coffee Shop

Reviewed By Polita1 - Prince Frederick, Maryland

Best milhoja with arequipe (dulce de leche) you can get. Pair it with Colombian coffee to make the perfect match. Small but cute ambience. A must to visit while at Villa de Leyva. Can't go wrong with any of their desserts.

Santa Lucia Pizzeria Gelateria Cafe

Reviewed By Johnny G - Pembroke Pines, Florida

Stumbled on this location based on an excellent rating out of Bogota. What a hidden gem. Everything we had was delicious. The pizza, four cheese spaghetti and spaghetti with meat sauce. All the dishes were reasonably priced and the atmosphere was very nice. Get there early as this is a popular place or be willing to wait a little for an open table. Service is quick so tables open up reasonably fast.
The gelato was absolutely the best we've had in south america.
A must visit when in Villa de Leyva.

Sybarita Caffe

Sybarita Caffee is a nice place that you can learn about Colombian Coffees and you can drink coffe from Huila, Narino, Sierra Neveda de Santa Marta, Tolima y Cauca. A good music, delicious cakes and friendly service.

Reviewed By KarYntravels - Melbourne, Australia

Wonderful coffee here, especially if you want something more specialised.
Visted twice first time a v60 cold drip and a vacuum with the same Colombian beans resulting in 2 very different but delicious experiences
2nd time a mocca frappe - with the nice touch of choosing sweet or bitter chocolate and a grapefruit/espresso frappe. Unbelievable sour and super refreshing
Nice for a treat!
