We could have very easily walked past this place as it's very unassuming from the outside. We had a look at the menu and were sold. As sandwiches, burgers, breakfasts and pancakes. What more do you need. We all had a chicken sandwiches but each...More

You could easily walk past this place without a second glance. A counter, a couple of drinks fridges and a few tables and chairs. Linger for a second and you'll be met by massive smiles and a better welcome than I've received in most other...More

Great burgers, cooked perfectly and very juicy and flavoursome. Good size portions too if you are hungry. We popped in here at the end of a 5 hour bike tour and were pleased with the food and service!

We are the best and only restaurant for travelers in Medellin. Look for the 2 big yellow umbrellas and 3 tables out front. I have a great little place that serves good (non-Colombian)food. We serve a great breakfast with eggs, pancakes, french toast, and even home fries. We have best buffalo sauce in Medellin,a new burger that tastes like home, and the best wings in town. All with cheap beer to go with it :o) The other thing I offer is great tourist information. So, for tourists and backpackers, I am a great spot. If you are looking for fine dining or gourmet food, I am not your place.
