Zona Cafetera

A unique place to point out here: a typical finca in Zone Cafetera style, very authentic and located right above Salento with a beautiful view, but within a 10 minute walk from the village. Extreme genuine, friendly and direct communication with the owners, and the housekeepers Nelly and José take care of their guests amazingly. For us definitely a new favorite place on our list.

Tip: ask for habitación no. 7.

Litte restaurant close to Salento's main road, very warm welcome and delicious food of all types. 

Very nice traveller cafe with amazing breakfast, good coffee and very friendly staff. 

Tiny artisan chocolate manufacturer with high-quality and sustainable production. And GREAT chocolate of course!

Wow, sad we found this place at the end of our stay in Salento. Amazing Venezuelan cuisine, while the super friendly staff gladly explains the origins of each and every dish and drink. 

Recently opened restaurant of our friend Jorge Andrés. Highly recommendable if you like a good piece of meat. Go there on a Sunday for lunch, enjoy some live music with a glass of wine. Don't miss to try the Porcheta de Cerdo and the Filet Mignon, super delicious! 

If you wanna know about Quindío's coffee culture and history, GO THERE! It is touristic, yes. But set up in a funny way with amazing guides making you laugh for hours. 

A hell of an experience! Typical Colombian food served in an alternative way. Kind of tapas with an unmistakably note in the menu, that these dishes are meant to share. So far definitely one of the best meals we had while in Colombia. Make your reservation before going there!

Restaurante Meraki - Salento

A little bit of everything, but all we tried was amazing food. Also very nice vegetarian dishes!

Camino Real - Salento

Unique labyrinthine outside area, you'll fell like sitting lost in a forest. Amazing meat and burgers!

Among the best coffee we ever had. 

Kafé del Alma - Salento

We're already turning into regulars in this beautiful café. Nice staff, cozy wood construction and lovely outside area. 

A unique place to explore the wonderful Eje Cafetero. Cotinga will be your new 2nd home from the day you arrive. Amazing staff helping with all you might need, delicious pizza, wonderful garden including pool. About 40 minutes to Salento and Filandia. A calm place perfect for couples, families and friends.
