The Flip Flop Sandwich Shop is a taste of home in the midst of Medellín. I can't attest to anything beyond the veggie omelette, but I'm sure everything is excellent. Paula, the owner, is incredibly sweet, and is not only a great cook but an excellent resource if you have questions about the city. Go for a (cheap!) meal, chat... 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!

Tasty, economic place. I've been religiously ordering the veggie omelette with homefries and it's basically $2.50 USD. The owner is amazingly nice as well. Go here!

It can be difficult for you to find a thick, juicy hamburger cooked to order in Medellin. Don't get me wrong, I love a good street burger, but occasionally you want something a bit more substantial. I didn't yet try it, but the menu did offer all day breakfast with american style eggs/bacon and toast. The place is small, with... More

Wow the French Toast here is amazing! Just like home. We've been in Colombia for over a month now so it was nice to have something that tasted like home and at a really affordable price! We will be going here again before we leave :)

Breakfast; pancakes, eggs sunny side up, hash browns and good crisp bacon (not the normal Colombian version of bacon) Lunch: Best Burger in Colombia w/fries, or Sloppy Joe Sandwich They also have a hot spiced chicken sandwich and wings, but I don't like bird.

Flip flop is hands down the best place to get a breakfast, brunch, lunch, or any meal in the Poblado area. The owner is amazing and will take time out of her busy day to not only make you an amazing meal, but make you feel comfortable, welcomed, and even give you a map and advice on what to do... More

The place is little more than a hole in a wall, and very basic, however it does serve the purpose and it does serve pretty good burgers. The owner is very enthusiastic ansd speaks flawless English, service is very friendly. Was this the best burger in my life? Well, no, but it was pretty darn good for Colombia. For 14k... More

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.
