Good option to taste arepas and juices. They offer some different kinds of arepas even vegetarian options. The desserts are delicious.

good arepas - south american speciality with fried corn bread and toppings inside like meat, avocado, cheese... this is good. but I find it a bit expensive for what it is (between 4.50 and 6.50 euros for an arepa)...

The food is great, however it does not offer wifi or seating and the staff could be friendlier, great location and the opening time is very long

The arepas here are so delicious. Great for a quick bite. It is standing only. I usually get filled on 1 or 2 arepas. Also great value for money.

We found this hidden gem late at night. The food was very tasty (the fresh cheese cornbread chicken cachapa was great!). One thing worth noting: the inside tables are standing only (no chairs). The workers spoke English which was helpful.

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
