There are lots of options when it comes to finding a good breakfast in Bucaramanga, Colombia. You can get bags of freshly cut mango or pineapple for $1,000 every few hundred meters. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous here are a few of our favorite places;
A great bakery and sandwich shop, fresh baked bread (without sugar), really good quality cold meats and cheeses (blue, smoked, gruyere) sold by weight around $2,000 for 100 grams. Definitely worth checking this place out and they do a really good breakfast omelette for $5,000. Same direction as Kirama but keep walking up the Carrera 29 until you hit calle 45 turn right on that corner and it’s a couple of shops along.
Fruit salads, juices, empanadas, arepas and loads more. Decent food, decent value. Just go left out of the hostel and left again at the Davivienda bank walk up the Carrera 29 past the little police station it’s on your right hand side, just up from the Bancolombia.
Really good cheap bakery, good ham and cheese croissants and the best mil hojas (vanilla custard slices) in Bucaramanga. Walk out of the hostel to your left and cross the road and follow the corner round, it’s 30 seconds from Kasa Guane.
Empanadas, fruit salads and juices right next to the hostel
Only there for your morning empanada or arepa, cheap and filling the lady does a really good aji (chilli sauce) right next to the hostel just look right. Anther neighbour also does great juices and fruitsalads. They’re reallyy cheap and it’s always good to support our lovely neighbours.
Opposite the hostel. Decent option but expensive and the service isn’t great. Good coffee and you can check their board that shows what times the different items will be ready to get fresh bread. The set breakfasts are good.
Want something more traditional? Head to this popular spot to eat what the locals eat. Big servings of caldos (soups) sworn by Santandereanos to cure even the worst aguadiente induced hangover. More one for on your way home from a big night out. On the Carrera 33 with Calle 34.
