After hearing positive reviews from several people I knew about this place, I felt that this was a restaurant worth visiting. Seven friends and I made our way through all the snow and ice to Tierra Colombiana last night. The atmosphere was pleasant and cozy, but the service was slooooowwwwww. It took over 20 min to get our drinks and an eternity for appetizers, entrees, the bill, and our change. The waiter was very friendly but too slow for our liking. The food was tasty and plentiful for the price. I would go again just not on a Friday night if you want your food in a reasonable time.

Wow, three and half stars -- really? I was so happy to stumble upon the Sugar Cafe and was EXTREMELY disappointed by my entire experience there. The menu looked promising, until the girl running the counter informed the customers in front of me that they were out of half the menu items. After re-thinking my decision and settling on the quiche, I asked what kind of quiche they were serving. The girl dissapeared and came back (after getting lost in the kitchen?) only to tell me that there was no quiche. Her co-worker took over the counter and proved to be equally useless. Ringing me up and printing the receipt proved to be a total strugglefest (and not in a 'it's my first day at a new job' struggle, just all out struggle). When the food came out (I ordered a ham and cheese sandwich) the meat and cheese was hanging half out of the bread, and one of the slices trying to hold the mess together appeared to by only one part of a broken piece of bread. The lettuce in the side salad was wilted an looked a little old. Considering the cost of the meal, everything should have been perfect not on made of broken wonder bread and sad greens. Spring for a baguette Sugar Cafe - c'mon! Sugar Cafe tries really hard to be a hipster haven - with the art hanging crookedly on the walls, uncomfortable furniture and a strictly indie rock music selection blaring in the background. The cafe fails when it's food falls short and staff forgets that they are there for the clients and not to act as mini hipster wannabes. Thanks, but no thanks.

After a good night here I left our table to go downstairs, when I tried to go back up to the table to collect my things a doorman on the stairs wouldn't let me. They were trying to close up which I understand, but how he thought I was going to just leave without my coat and bag I don't know. He was rude, argumentative and you should only go here if you want to spend a lot of money to be treated like an idiot.
