I love breakfast, it's my fav meal and I'm always on the hunt for great breakfast spots. It was a bit of a challenge for me in Medellin to find that awesome breakfast place, until now.

1. Food is excellent. It's clear there's a good of attention to detail and quality.

2. This place is run by an American couple. That means it works and it works very well. Service is on spot and quality is where it needs to be.

3. You're going to love the pancakes BUT don't forget to try the amazing breakfast burrito, and the other breakfast treats on the menu.

4. it's affordable, very affordable actually. you're paying Colombian prices and very reasonable ones at that.

5. Coffee is good. it's made fresh - read #2 above for more details.

Overall score is a perfect 100. What would put it over the top is having a Nespreso machine with an option for cappuccino. I already let the owners know :)

Conveniently located next to the metro exit Estadio, El Viejo y El Pancake is a chic and comfy American breakfast place. The omelettes, hash browns, and pancakes remind me of home away from home and are so delicious! David and Lexxy, the owners, are also very welcoming and social as they cook your food. Great place to hang out and meet people and enjoy some home-made breakfast.

Amazing chocolate pancakes. Simple and delicious, they make a good pick-up food if you are on the go in the morning or struggling from last night.

Stumbled across El Viejo y El Pancake somewhere online and figured I had to give it a try. Hopped on the metro from Envigado and showed up just before close. Ordered (2) three stack pancakes, one chocolate and one strawberry. Plus a carnivore egg burrito. Watched and spoke with David as he made everything, FRESH and from scratch, in front of me. Food was delicious ! Honestly mouth is watering right now as I write this... Needless to say, I will be back, probably 4 or 5 times a week. Not because I'm an American looking for American food in Medellin, but because the food is seriously good.

Colombians, debes probar este lugar !
