Hi Lewis thanks very much for your nice words on Velvet! The owner actually is a Belgian woman who trusted the Illinois expat as manager;) anyway he clearly is doing a magnificent job and we will continue to work on the quality.

i cant imagine anyone not liking this place, their product is great as well as the service. what makes this place unique is the back room! cozy with an outdoor ambience of plants and comfort. super hip and trendy therefore a little pricey, poblado style!

This Cafe is more elegant than Pergamino Cafe, located across the street. This spot is more relaxed and not so rushed, without the feel of hectic and highly caffeinated activity buzzing all around you. Here you can have a coffee, cappuccino, French Press or a...More

Beautiful cafe which fills up quick with locals and tourists alike mooching the (very good) wifi and enjoying a delicious cappuccino. It was the most expensive cappuccino we’ve had to date 5800 each (for memory) but were creamy and well-flavoured. We also got a carrot...More

Belgian owned specialty coffee bar launched in the heart of El Poblado, the trendy neighborhood in Medellin. On entering you feel cozy and at home. The coffee beans are scrupulously selected from micro lots in the surrounding hills. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate is served with a Belgian touch and there is a selection of pastry, chocolate desserts and different menus of the day too.
