Within the breakfast menu, there are different types of arepas with combinations of unique ingredients, as well as preparations of eggs in an omelet, pan eggs, scrambled eggs, or with a mixture such as bacon or ham.
The most typical breakfast is Calentado, a dish of preparations from the day before usually beans with meat, arepa, cheese, and eggs. It’s the complete breakfast or Colombian brunch!
For those who prefer to eat just a snack, this traditional restaurant has for breakfast or brunch:
Likewise, the drinks are a variety of soft drinks, natural juices, coffees, and other hot preparations such as tea or chocolate.
The place’s a large, closed, and cozy lounge. They also have the most famous chicken pies in all of Medellin!
Tostao is a Starbucks-type cafe that operates only in Colombia and stands out for selling bakery and coffee products at very affordable prices.
In Bello, there is more than one Tostao near the central park and one inside Puerta del Norte Shopping Center.
At Tostao, you can go for breakfast, brunch, or a snack in the afternoon. It’s ideal for a cheap and good quality meal.
Among the options that I prefer for breakfast in Tostao are egg or ham sandwiches, some cheese sticks, or salty cake to accompany any preparation of coffee, either hot or cold, depending on the weather.
A more elaborate sandwich’s perfect for brunch, such as a chicken or pork tenderloin sandwich with a cold drink.
