Café
“La Puerta Falsa is a Bogotá institution and perhaps the oldest restaurant and snack bar in the city. It isn’t just a restaurant, it’s an experience for anyone looking for authentic and traditional Colombian fare.You can’t miss out on their hot chocolate or agua de panela. Even though they serve small plates, we suggest going with an empty stomach and trying a little bit of everything they have to offer. Sun: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Mon: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Tue: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Wed: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Thu: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Fri: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm Sat: 6:00 am - 9:00 pm”
