Pasteleria Francesca was a bit of a disappointment for us. We had read quite a bit about this “authentic” French bakery and were looking forward to a hot baguette and hopefully some decent coffee. It is a very cute little place with walls filled of old black and white photos of Paris. It does feel like you've walked into a French cafe once in the front door.
Favorite Dish: While we loved its charming interior and the baked goods looked promising, we found out looks can be deceiving. The baguette was pretty lackluster and my cappuccino, while very pretty to look at, was lacking in the coffee department. The sweet pastries we ordered (a neopolitan and an almond croissant) were pretty good but overall, we though La Gata had better quality cake and coffee. The prices were not too bad. We paid 9000 COP (about $4.50) for the two pastries, a baguette, a cappuccino, and a tea. I wouldn't tell someone not to check it out but not sure I'd go back aside from liking the interior so much.

Comparison: more expensive than average
