Those needing a bit of pomp or history with their chocolate santafereño (hot chocolate served with cheese) should make the hike to this classic snack shop-restaurant (a legendary spot for hot chocolate since 1936). Overwhelmed uniformed waiters serve up Tolimenses- and Santandereanos-style tamales to legions of fans for breakfast and cakes and pastries throughout the day (COP$2200 to COP$7500).
