I love Macondo! Its best feature isn't just its delicious food or great ambiance, but its Cine Gratis (Free Movie Theater) every single night. Such a great idea!

Friendly service, but evidently a tad busy when I arrived early Monday evening. I ordered the salmon "pie", unsweetened fruit juice, the Ursula dessert, and the tinto fuerte coffee. The salmon was more doughy (pie crust) than I had anticipated; very tasty, but hardly gluten-free. The coffee was a tad bitter, bit no more so than any other I've had... More

Macondo have a cute little cinema out the back which I believe they show movies every night except Saturdays. There is no cover charge and you can order drinks and food at the beginning of the movie. Coffee and desserts are perfect and the staff are lovely.

I come here often to have coffee and enjoy the good vibes of the place. Definitely the best espresso in Cali!! My girlfriend loves the amazing Limonada de Café" a refreshing combination of lemon juice and espresso

i really like this place because u can listen to jazz while you are having a coffe. its very cultural and bohemian. however, i didnt like the food that much, but i guess its nothing compare with the nice time ull spend there. i suggest to go for a coffe or ice cream and eat in another place.

Feels like a trendy European cafe. Good coffee but the prices are very high compared to what you can get locally

The place has a great energy and atmosphere to have a coffee and listening music…they also have amazing cakes. Dunno about the food…always go just for coffee.
