MEDELLIN | Repostería Astor is an iconic Medellin sweet shop that was opened in 1930 by Swiss-born pastry chef Enrique Baer as The Astor Tea room. It was originally frequented by European immigrants, hungry for a taste of the sweets of their homeland, but soon evolved into a spot frequented by people from all walks of life.

The venue has a classic feel about it, with simple seating and tables, and artworks of the venue’s history on the walls. Cabinets at the front of the restaurant an inside display an assortment of delights, such as  biscuits, almond alfajores, honey nuts, chocolate baskets, and the signatures “sapito”, and ‘moritos’.  As well as dining in, you can purchase fresh items to-go, along with several pre-packaged items like chocolates, sweets, and biscuits. The truffles are particularly delicious.

Today Astor have several locations across Medellin, but the main store, which dates back to the 1940s and is just up the road from the 1930 original, is the best. You don’t come here for the newest and most innovative pastries in town, you come here for the classics, done right, and a slice of old Medellin that locals still enjoy today.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
