This place is the best breakfast place in Medellin in my opinion. The service is excellent, just like in the US, the food is great and it's very inexpensive. I like their coffee because they add cinnamon and the pancake are awesome. It gets crowded on weekends because it's a small place so you better get there early.

El Viejo y El Pancake is hands-down the best breakfast restaurant in Medellin. My only complaint is that both the food and service were go great I was unable decide which I love the most, the food or the service.

You will have fun eating here. Not far from Metro station and just off of La 70. Owners are a fun happy American couple with wife's mom a Colombiana. Homemade breakfast sausage is great and so is everything else. Good food and good fun atmosphere.

Lexi and David are a rad couple of US ex-pats making great American-style breakfast eats in Colombia. Lexi is the cute, funny server and David is the dry, sarcastic chef that those of us who have worked in the service industry have grown to love. We recently had a craving for a taste of home. Well El Viejo hit the spot and did much more. This husband and wife duo are putting out food that's tastier than the breakfast spots back home in Vegas. The pancakes, homemade sausage, and breakfast potatoes are one-of-a-kind. And something you'll never see/hear in Colombia...FREE REFILLS ON COFFEE!!! I wish we were still in Medellin, so we could go there today :( Delicious food aside, the owners are what takes this place to the next level. They are truly an inspiration. Lexi was even kind enough to star in a little piece for our blog and social media accounts- Happy Nomad Couple (shameless plug). The food is great, and the vibe is even better. Cannot wait to visit with them again the next time we are in Medellín.

Really nice place if you want a brake from the colombian breakfast, this american couple makes amazing pancakes, eggs and bacon to very fair prices! The woman is very friendly, makes you feel at home, and refills your cofee as many times as you want.
