Bon Marché was founded in 1979 in the city of Pereira. It started as a small bakery and confectionary in the centre of the city. As the production began to expand they started with opening of the new shops in other areas of the city and later also in Armenia and Medellín. Bon Marché specializes in products made with cheese, such as pandebono, pan de yuca (yuca bread) and buñuelos (traditional Colombian Christmas treat but they are popular year round). You can get a variety of breads, from Fench bread to multigrain and integral bread, sweet and sour pastries and a lot more.

I came to Medellín with the night bus from Bogotá. My room was not ready yet so I decided to have a breakfast in panadería Bon Marché which was just around the corner from hostal Tamarindo. I chose the outside table and soon got involved in the conversation with a friendly young couple (and their sweet daughter) from another table. They have a family run publishing house, only a few minutes from there. They invited me to visit but unfortunately I had no time.

Favorite Dish: Nice smell of freshly baked bread was coming from inside and all the products looked really tempting. It was not an easy decision :) I finally made a choice: pandebono, pan de yuca, glass of freshly squeezed orange juice and cappuccino. Thought not the cheapest - 8.700 COP (December 2009) - this made a very delicious breakfast!
