The story of the little oasis in Taganga

Colombia has a variety of amazing and tasty dishes; unfortunately hearty non-sweet bread and a cup of coffee properly prepared are hard to find…and often we crave for just that! The founders of this little oasis in Taganga understood the need for good, homemade bread, fresh grinded regional coffee and other tasty delicacies back in April 2010. Now, 5 years later and after several changes over the last 6 months, the little family is in Sweden pursuing a new adventure. We wish them all the best! So what has happened? Shortly after moving to the coast of Colombia it was clear that the last and second owner of Café Bonsai had to return to Sweden too and thought it suitable for us, an English-German / Dutch couple, to take over. After a night of talking, evaluating and familiarising us with the idea we decided to go for it and take over the little oasis. We want to create a space where all can escape the craziness and can taste European inspired products made by fresh Colombian ingredients. We see it as a great chance, as the beginning of so many other great things we will be doing in the (near) future. And together with our wonderful and experienced team of 5 ladies we continue to provide the excellent quality of our homemade deliciousness. The menu ranges from delicious breakfasts served with great coffee and fresh juice, homemade bread, sandwiches with tasty toppings, the unique Mojito Slush and a yummy barbecue. Café Bonsai is situated in Taganga, close to Santa Marta. To get there from Santa Marta take a bus to Taganga, walk down to the beach and along the promenade towards Playa Grande to Calle 13, look to your right, there we are!
