Dining options: Dinner, Breakfast
Description: 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.

Steve was so kind and went out of his way to draw a map of things to do in the city. This is a must see if you are just arriving and would like to see he city for everything it has to offer. Sandwich was quite amazing as well! Thanks Steve.

the Florida-raised owner Chris is there everyday serving up, delicious home-made ham sandwiches, the likes of which you can't find elsewhere in columbia, delicious breakfasts and cheap beers. The company is equally savory, as he is a wealth of information and you never whom else maybe there to add to the forum. Definitely worth a visit!

This place has great food - the BLT and the chicken sandwich are great. Also one of the only places I have found in Latin America to serve vegemite for all those homesick Australians. Chris, the owner, has excellent advice and inside knowledge about Medellin and happily gave me a map and told me about some great things to do. Definitely recommend the Flip Flop Sandwich Shop!

I highly recommend the Chicken Salad sandwich. The Buffalo Chicken sandwich is also pretty good.

The owner Chris is a very friendly person and will take the time to give you info on how to navigate the city.

They also have a varied breakfast menu.

The food was great and the atmosphere gave it a touch of home. The owner is at your disposal and makes the dining experience feel like you're with family. If you're in Medellin, check this place out. My wife and I loved it!
