Cafe Bonsai is super central located as it is just by the bay, and it's a very cool and pleasant place to chill!

Great place for breakfast and lunch. Visited this place three times, seeing as they have amazing sandwiches (their bread is amazing). They have multiple breakfast menu's. I would definitely recommend the menu including sandwich, tea/coffee, juice and delicious yoghurt and granola!

The lovely Owners are always open for a chat! The sandwiches are top class, three kinds of bread, four kinds of individually flavoured sauces - top quality ingredients!

We had breakfast with friend at Bonsai. It was nice to have something else than arepas and eggs for a change ;) Coffee is very good and the breads are heavenly. The portion sizes could be a bit bigger, hence the 4 stars. But the quality is definitely worth 5 stars.

The owners are very nice, good vibes. Understandable that they got so many tripadvisor certificates. I don't know about the breakfast, but had good lunch here. The smoothie was nice, also the coffee here is excellent!
