Breakfast; pancakes, eggs sunny side up, hash browns and good crisp bacon (not the normal Colombian version of bacon) Lunch: Best Burger in Colombia w/fries, or Sloppy Joe Sandwich They also have a hot spiced chicken sandwich and wings, but I don't like bird.

Flip flop is hands down the best place to get a breakfast, brunch, lunch, or any meal in the Poblado area. The owner is amazing and will take time out of her busy day to not only make you an amazing meal, but make you...More

We saw this in a guidebook and went for a late breakfast one morning. The food was prepared very quickly but neither of us were very impressed with the food. I had an omlet that had many things in it but remained bland. The prices...More

I am not a big fan of the burgers in Colombia. So it was nice to get an American style burger from here. It came with curly fries. I also had a bottle of water. Everything was less than 10 dollars. It is very small...More

Went here for breakfast with my wife, expecting an authentic american breakfast but only was a cheap regular one. Definitely, it is not only about having a "gringo" owner, it's about selection of good ingredients and good cooking, both of them absent in this place.

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.
