Which is the best cafe in Medellin, Pergamino, Hija Mia or Urbania? Pergamino certainly is a great cafe, they obviously have spent a lot of time on attention to detail and quality coffee. The employees are all very friendly, the ambience is great and the...cake amazing. It is a close run thing between my other favourite cafes in Medellin but overall Pergamino wins but my heart belongs to Urbania, as it is my local.More

We found this place when looking up where to get a top coffee in El Poblado. Lovely coffee and iced tea and delicious banana and chocolate cake. Loved the shop too, bought some beans back for my parents.

Fabulous coffee AND pastries. We went several times during our 7-day stay in Medellín and I think they served our order correctly just twice....so that's a thing, but overall the staff were pretty nice and the atmosphere is very chill and pleasant. They were usually...playing good tunes as well, so that's a big plus. Highly recommended.More

Stylish cafe in the middle of el poblado. You can choose coffee beans and preparation type. I tried two of them and both are very delicious. Cakes were yummy too, however small pieces. What I did not entirely like is that it attracts many people...working on their computers all day long.More

Cool vibe, nice outdoor space, good music, good wifi & great Colombian coffee! Been there 2 times- French press a little weak (they press it for you), great espresso & almond croissants

The place is cute, lots of souvenirs from their shop. You order and pay at the counter and they bring the order to your table. I ordered huevos la maga and a cappuccino. I asked what was in the croissant on the counter and was...told chocolate and almonds so I ordered that too. It took a while to get my order, and oddly enough the eggs came before the coffee and croissant. Then the croissant was not the one I ordered, and it turned out I had been charged more for it. I sent it back. The eggs were dry and flavorless. It was supposed to be eggs with sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. The few green leaves were hardly pesto and the tomatoes were few and far between. The egg yolk was so dry and the eggs baked into the container so half was left stuck in the bowl. After I finished my eggs and coffee I had to remind the waiter to bring me the correct croissant that I was still waiting for, which he finally did, and reimbursed the difference in price from the wrong one I was charged. Because of all the good reviews and the coffee being tasty I’m willing to give this place another chance, but I was not impressed.More

I arrived in Medellin on a Monday afternoon of what i did not know previously was a holiday. Pergamino was a cool place to hang out while most of everything else was closed, the streets had sketchy characters, and my tour was canceled. I went...there every morning after for coffee and breakfast. Everyone was nice, the coffee was great, and the breakfast treats (cornettos and the granola) was so good, and the WiFi is fast. There are a lot of the laptoppers there but it's not too obnoxious.More

The coffee was okay. We had a regular cappuccino. I was a little sad because we wanted a specialty coffee but the waiters didn’t tell us what soriments they had and what the cost was. The regular cappuccino was 3,5€. The coffee was good, the...service didn’t cost additionaly but it wasn’t great, I mean they didn’t bring us watter and if your a specialty coffeeshop you should. All in all, a good experince and a good coffee in VaticanMore
