With a name that nods to the town that is the setting for Colombian magical realist author Gabriel García Márquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude," you can expect a place that is anything but ordinary. The café and bar, full of vivid colors and artwork, feels like a gallery space or a head shop, and the soundtrack tends to be loud and eclectic. The cooking tries to explore Andean cuisine in fun new ways. Some dishes work and some do not. Do order the alpaca mignon with bacon in mushroom and white-wine sauce. Skip the curried trout. The cocktail list makes the two daily happy hours worth coming to. The same owners also operate the bar-restaurant Fallen Angel on Plaza Nazarenas.
