Panaderia Ricuras de Cabañas

Panaderia Ricuras de Cabañas

Medellín has a particularity: a series of 24h bakeries on corners.

These bakeries stand out for the eccentricity of the illuminated signs and rotating bread, pies, and cake cabinets.

Ricuras de Cabañas is one of these iconic traditional bakeries that offer bread with cheese, empanadas, sweet bread with grated coconut, bread with guava candy, arequipe, and bread with ham.

In addition, this place also offers simple breakfasts such as eggs of choice (scrambled, with tomatoes and onions, ranch eggs, etc.) with arepa and cheese.

Tostao Café

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.
