Medellín is a modern metropolis and one of the most fun and popular cities in Colombia. Here is a list of the best places to start your day before heading off to explore the city.
Ganso & Castor
Ganso & Castor is inspired by the little cafes that can be found everywhere in Paris. They serve typical french fare: expect french toast, pancakes, omelets, and quiches on the menu. You can also start your daytime drinking early with one of their delicious mimosas.
Address: 104, Cra. 36 #756, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia
Brie Bon serves all the french brunch classics, and the place is made even better by its beautiful decor and attentive waiting staff. Located in the Provenza area of El Poblado, this upscale cafe is a more pricey option.
D’andré gourmet have a brilliant menu all-round, but breakfast here is particularly good. You’ll find a mix of options, from lighter muesli and yogurt to larger, more filling egg dishes and warm plates. The omelet here is spectacular and in general the place is excellent value for money, surprising given its Poblado location.
Versalles is a typical Colombian cafe which is in fact famous for its Argentine empanadas. This is a great spot to come for breakfast and enjoy some typical pastries but also a good place to come for lunch too; Versalles does a bargain set lunch offering two courses at a very affordable price.
The smells that waft out of Tomasa will be enough to lure you in, and that’s before you’ve even seen the menu. With freshly baked bread, handmade sandwiches and tempting cakes and bakes, this cafe is a great spot for a light breakfast. Should you be after something more filling, cooked breakfasts are on offer too.
