Feliz Cumpleaños para nosotros! It’s hard to believe it has been 9 years since Taste of Colombia opened our doors. And even harder to believe that like so many other people, we have to celebrate this year without our friends!While the cafe remains closed for the time being please know that we are thinking about you all, so grateful for your support, and look forward to celebrating when we re-open. In the meantime stay safe and well and we will see you again soon! Scroll to see before (2012) and after (2021) pictures! #9years #Anniversary
Dear clients and friends: We wanted to let you know that the cafe will stay closed through February in the hope that Oakville can continue to lower COVID numbers. We will let you know ahead of time when we are planning to reopen. Until then, stay safe and well. We look forward to seeing you all again soon! #covidupdate
Hola! We hope everyone is having a happy and healthy start to 2021 and we want to express how thankful we are for all your good wishes for the New Year.
We want to let you know that after much consideration, and seeing the rising COVID-19 numbers in Oakville and the province in general, we are making the difficult decision to close Taste of Colombia for the time being. We feel that we need to do our part to both protect our family and those of our baristas, as well as to ‘stop the spread’ of COVID-19.
Please stay tuned as we will continue to monitor the situation and the provincial government’s guidelines and will keep you informed as to when we will be opening up again!
Until we can meet over a coffee…stay safe, everyone.
