Carmen is one of Cartagena’s best restaurants, an elegant venue located within the Anandá Boutique Hotel. This Cartagena institution uses fresh local produce to create fusion dishes which have their roots in traditional Colombian cuisine. For breakfast, expect anything from yogurt and granola to freshly poached eggs – whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed to be starting your day off right.

This little juice bar is a gem in the heart of the culturally buzzing area of Getsemani. Offering up an incredible range of fresh juices, light bites and high-quality Colombian coffee, this is the spot to visit when you feel like you need a break from all the typical fried food. Recommended are the nispero and zapote juices, both drunk with milk with an almost nutty flavor.

Street food arepas in the Old City

Street vendors are everywhere in Cartagena, selling everything from sunglasses to fresh fruits, but for a breakfast bite you can’t get anything better than the arepas of Elaine Gomez Lozano. Set up on the corner of Carrera 11 and Calle 38, Elaine sells her handmade arepas every morning, catering to locals and tourists alike. Each arepa will cost you no more than £1 and they come with cheese, meat and tomato toppings. This delicious food will certainly keep you full until lunch – try it and eat like a local.
