Fodor's Expert Review Caffé Lunático
$$$ Cartagena Spanish
Set on a lovely and generally calm Getsemaní street, this funky café dominated by a wall-sized graffitti mural serves the tastiest breakfast in town. Try the arepita lunatica for one of the best examples of the local breakfast classic. It's also an excellent choice for tapas in the evening. Ingredients are of notably good quality, and the Spanish owner/chef reliably impresses with a short menu that shows off some inventive and remarkably well-executed dishes ranging from a watermelon gazpacho with avocado and a shrimp brochette, to a corvina tiradito with banana and lemongrass, to a more traditional grilled octopus. All around, Lunático offers great value for the quality of the food.
