I had some terrific meals here. Lunch was a mushroom quiche which was DELICIOUS! the service, atmosphere and food was to die for. Desert ( carrot cake and tea) is the best I had in Medellin. we came another time to do it again. and again. They speak English and Spanish. You have to try this.

Nice place to have breakfast or brunch. We had juices, benedict eggs, pancakes, fruit salads, cappuccino and chocolate. We were served quickly and everything was tasty. Small remark for waiters that were not welcoming but became friendly when we had to order.

Slow and poor service, we had to wait for the waiter, even to pay the bill, the food was cold, the beverages were tasteless... Don't go

Fantastic brunch, friendly staff, good location. The eggs and tostadas were delicious; the pancakes with nutella and bananas were also very good.
