Gourmet cinnamon rolls with cream cheese orange zest frosting melt in your mouth goodness!You won't find anything like what we offer anywhere in Colombia. Our house hot fudge brownie with creamy vanilla ice cream is made from 70% cacao dark chocolate, this rivals any brownie anywhere! Come try one of our specialty mojitos or margaritas which never disappoint! We have French press local certified coffee and fresh creative natural juices. Didn't get the info from your hostel? No problem we are so close to the main square that it is an easy find, just a half block up from the main park on Calle 12 in the Casa Lopez centro commercial! Visit us today and you will be glad you did, because there is nothing like Gringo Mike's in the whole country! Colombians will agree as they make up 80% of our business!

“Great food, excellent service, fair price”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

We ate here more than a few times during our stay, and were impressed everytime.

The 4 cheese quesadilla was devine, the bacon and brie sandwich to die for, and the burgers were damn good too.

The chips came with a delicious dipping sauce, and great seasoning.

Service was exceptional, genuinely friendly, helpful and food service was fast. I didn't know it was possible to get drinks in under 2 minutes, and mains in about 7mins.

Prices were fair and reasonable - about 2.5k for a juice (i think), beer 3k and around 10-15k for a main.

The restaurant was set around a nice courtyard, making for a nice atmosphere.

“Best veggie burger I have ever had”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

I usually hate the kind of place I expected this to be. But ... The food is super, portions too big (I hope they keep pigs or something!) the clientele both traveller and local Colombian and the service fabulous. Order the veggie burger. Seriously do.

“Huge portions, friendly staff”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Against how we normally eat on vacations (the local fare and different restaurants every time), we ate here three times, once for lunch and twice for dinner, though in all honesty the second dinner we ate there was mostly b/c it was Sunday evening and no other place was open. The food was fantastic and the burgers especially are really big. If you're starving, you can eat a whole one, but otherwise you can share it w/ another person and get your fill. The prices were standard, and actually a really good value for the size of the meal and taste. In addition, the owner, Mike, and his girlfriend, as well as the rest of the staff we encountered, were all really friendly. If Mike is there, he'll most likely come to your table and chat w/ you for a while, as he did w/ us and as we saw him do w/ most of the other tables that first night we were there. Definitely recommended!

“Awesome place to get some 'gringo' food”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Amazing and huge burgers. I could hardly finish half on my burger. The menu is very expansive and innovative with interesting things like roast beef sandwiches with pear cream cheese. Very good value. Great place to drink some cervesa and meet other backpackers
