The gal working here (I think the owner) was great. Her English was perfect and she was very friendly and helpful. She gave us a map of Cartagena and offered travel help and advice. I had the veggie omelette with potatoes and it was great!...More

You could easily walk past this place without a second glance. A counter, a couple of drinks fridges and a few tables and chairs. Linger for a second and you'll be met by massive smiles and a better welcome than I've received in most other...More

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...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...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...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.
