Eating at Bakeries in Cafeterias in Cali near Plaza Caicedo Oct 23, 2009
If you don't like to eat while you are walking, you can go to one of the many bakeries/cafeterias/eateries in the city.
This review is about the ones in downtown, where we had breakfast. But they are open all day long.
First breakfast in Cali was in a café in downtown. It was big and you could see all the food they offer. There were many locals eating here, so that was a good sign and helped taking the decision to stay here, hehe. Also the food look very fresh and just cooked. Furthermore, you can see how they were cooking it.
Juices are popular here BUT be sure you order them without milk, just water. Otherwise they will assume you like it with milk… I guess juice was good, if you like a milky one… but not my case. It was easy to pick up what to eat, since there are showcases and you just need to point what you want, hehehe.
The selection was wide. What to eat? Ok, let’s try the “Arepa con huevo” arepa (similar to a tortilla) with egg and “Pan de bono”. The Arepa wasn’t that great. The egg was too cooked and you can see pieces of the hard eggwhite and hard yolk. It was a bit dry for me. The Pan de bono was a bread stuffed with cheese. It was very good. The pasty had some sweetness, perfect contrast with the salty cheese.
These places are small, so you can't ask for much. It was cheap comfort food. There are many places like this near Plaza Caicedo in downtown.
As everywhere else, staff was kind and friendly.
