Critic Rating

Shweta Speaks Writer & Journalist

3.8/5

The pleasant woodwork confines of this place are peppered with exotic paraphernalia as a reminder of its Latino USP. You could unwind here with a raspberry and blackcurrant smoothie and a bacon cheese omelette or akuri. Alternatively, sip on a tall toffee milkshake with the popular and loaded lamb burger or the curried soya with mint mayo option. The lemongrass, cranberry, or passion-fruit sodas, on the other hand, may go well with the anda rice, chicken curry rice, Goan fish curry rice, spicy kaleji or kheema pao (there is also a soya version of the latter). But, without a doubt, it is the Colombian specialties that are the highlight here – frijoles antioqueños (bean and lamb stew), arepa con chorizo (corn bread with meat sausage), patacon pisao (cheesy chicken in mushroom sauce on crisp plantain), camarones en apuro (Colombian-style prawns with garlic bread), regañonas (Colombian corn fritters) with sour cream, empanadas with papaya salsa and more! Other good mains include a sage-beurre blanc fish with creamy mash, sumptuous lamb stew with rice and Hawaiian chicken with pineapple and nasi goreng. End with the amazing dulce de leche, apple-cinnamon waffles, or caramel banana/Guatemalan honey-fruit pancakes – it is all (very) good.

Delicious food

Cafe Colombia a place located on the most famous and happening street of Kalyani Nagar. This cafe is literally like a home for most of their customers as some of them visit this cafe daily to spend their quality time. The best thing about this cafe is that they don't use any MSG and PRESERVATIVES which makes the food healthier than other reputed restaurants. In this restaurant, i have tried eating a hell lots of food but still, my stomach was not filling full which is a good sign. They have also provided board games which will help you to spend your quality time with your friends and your loved ones. Now we will talk about the food that i had theirs. CACO SPECIAL LIIT : A perfectly measured drink having a proper proportion of spirit and energy drink. #highlyrecommended BACON &CHEESE SANDWICH : When i heard bacon i was very happy as i was expecting a pork bacon but they have chicken bacon which turned out to be really delicious and soul-satisfying. A bag of cheese was loaded inside the omelette which made it more delightful. The overall dish was a mixture of egg, bacon & cheese. The best part was that it was sided with slices of bread, ketchup & butter. MEDITERRANEAN COUSCOUS SALAD : Couscous is a Maghrebi dish of small steamed balls of crushed durum wheat semolina that is traditionally served with a stew spooned on top. The couscous salad i tried in here contained kidney beans, tomatoes, couscous, olives with lemon sprinkle and tossed in a good amount of olive oil. I loved this salad a lot. Its taste was perfect and soul-satisfying. BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN : Chicken is the love of my life. If you are a chicken lover like me then you should definitely try this kebab. The bacon used in here was a CHICKEN BACON which turned out to be my favourite. The bacon was perfectly cooked and the kebab which was been wrapped the bacon was extremely delicious. It was not too juicy but the flavours were perfectly compounded in the kebab. KHEEMA SLIDER : Kheema slider was like a burger filled with minced meat between the burger. The kheema was extremely juicy and the spices added to this kheema were in the perfect proportion which made it the best. Cheese, onion & kheema was filled between the buns to lift up its taste. A dip of a mustard sauce was provided which got well with this dish. BANDEJA PAISA : A humungous dish with lots of food items in it was very photogenic. This is an authentic Colombian dish which is the most recommended dish from this restaurant. The platter included the small bowl of rice, ground meat, lamb and bean gravy, sausage, chicken breast topped with barbeque sauce & fried banana. This platter was like a whole meal in one plate which was too delicious. HOMEMADE CURRY RICE : The most recommended dish from my side is this chicken curry. The curry was not too spicy and the spices were added in a perfect proportion. The consistency of the curry was also perfect and the chicken added in this gravy was also tender and well-cooked. We ordered this dish twice because cravings were not fully fulfilled. #highlyrecommended ITALIAN SIZZLER : Being an Italian dish this sizzler consists of mac & cheese pasta made in bell pepper sauce, corn nugget, spaghetti & and huge fries. The fries, nugget and pasta were too good in its taste but the spaghetti was lacking the little bit (minute departure) in its taste. The pasta was very juicy and creamy due to which its taste was lifted up to a next level.

A Café for the Community by the Community- Café Colombia

This place has some different vibe to it. Visiting this place, I still felt like I know this place for years. The feeling of community café was for real. People here come sit have their brunch or one drink chill a bit and go back to work. Talking about the prices, they were low compared to many places. The food had no preservatives, added colour so even after eating a lot I dint felt heavy and full. The food is totally good just some of the dishes need small improvement. No doubt that this is one of the good place in Kalyani Nagar.

Cafe Colombia - Where Bonds are made through Food

Cafe Colombia - Where Bonds are made. Cafe Colombia is one of the oldest cafes in Kalyani Nagar. It offers a wide range of food items and some Colombian specials to stick with the name. The cafe is very well known as Community cafe as they've created a family of customers which visits literally daily for food. I think this is the best achievement for a cafe which creates a separate bond with the customers. The most commendable thing after this is that they don't use any preservatives or colors in their food. Mostly you get full or feel heavy on stomach whenever you have a meal in the restaurant but here the situation was different. We had our meal and I was feeling normal, no heavy feeling or full stomach. I liked such cafe because they give your food which is made with love and true soul. The cafe is located on the well-known street of Jogger's Park in Kalyanagar area. They have an Indoor section with air conditioning and you can also opt for outdoor seating with a nice street view. They have set up a separate 2-3 tables on the right side area under the shade to utilize the space. I loved the interior as it's not classy or vibrant, it's simple as it gets and makes you feel comfortable around it. We had a variety of dishes in which most of them were superb and we actually surprised by some dishes which we never imagined to turned out so good. Let's start then - Bacon and cheese omelet - They don't serve Pork bacon which is my favorite. They have chicken bacon which isn't good as pork one but can do the work. The omelet was huge and had a good amount of filling inside it. It was given with Amul butter, tomato ketchup, hash brown and grilled tomato. The cheese which was used in it was super fresh and it had that nice cheese pull texture which added an extra happiness in our experience. The omelet had a nice amount of chicken bacon and it was crispy the entire package was pretty good and we enjoyed it. Mediterranean Couscous Salad - A bit different than a regular salad but quite effective. The salad didn't have that regular juicy texture but the taste was quite effective. The salad was full of different elements and it was a package of healthy food. It had kidney beans, couscous, tomato, olives with lemon sprinkle and tossed in a good amount of olive oil. The taste was perfect and we enjoyed having a salad. I don't usually prefer having salad as its too healthy but this one was a bit different. Bacon wrapped chicken - Medium crisp chicken bacon wrapped nicely around green mix marination. The chicken was bit dry and because of that it didn't compliment the bacon and overall taste went to dry side. The needed juiciness of chicken wasn't there. Kheema Slider - We had this dish after bacon wrapped chicken and I thought it will be dry to as it was looking like one. The slider concept is similar to wadapav where you get filling between buns with a nice slice of cheese. The kheema filling was best, as it was smooth and nicely minced and had a perfectly balanced taste. The kheema was juicy and it went well with cheese and onion slice. It was given with mustard sauce which I think is a perfect dip to go with kheema slider. Khow Suey - When it came on our table the texture of cream on top of it won our heart. Obviously, it was creamy but they added a bit of extra cream because of which it tasted sweet and extra creamy. Little less cream and a pinch of spice could've done the work. It wasn't getting the coconut taste also in it. We gave our feedback and they took it positively. This dish can be the best one with slight tweaks here and there. Bandeja Paisa - one of the most recommended dishes from Cafe Colombia. As I don't get a chance to travel more but I love to try new thing, this one was a must have for me. This is a Colombian Delicacy which is a complete package and easily makes you full. It's a Colombian platter which comes with a small bowl of rice, ground meat, lamb and bean gravy, sausage, chicken breast and a fried egg. It's a perfect meal which you will remember for a long time. The chicken breast was tossed in bbq sauce. The most interesting thing was the lamb and bean gravy, it had that distinct taste of spices used in it and it felt really good with the lamb. The ground meat was a medium minced meat which was spiced with some regular elements. It was too good and went well with the combination. I always love sausages and I find it good here too. We also had fried banana which I tried the first time. The platter had all different taste and texture elements which made it pretty unique. Homemade chicken curry rice - One of the best thing to try at cafe Colombia and this one surprised us with the perfect texture and taste. The curry was medium thick and had that bit watery texture to it which we get at home. The taste was so perfect that we ordered it again just to have that gravy. The taste was similar to the south Indian gravies so I think they've used some spiced from south Indian cuisine. The texture and taste were quite similar to the dalcha we usually eat. Highly recommended. Italian Sizzler - I usually see huge sizzler with lots of things in the pot which makes me not to order it as it's not easy to eat so many things for a single or two people. Here the Italian sizzler is their specialty and I can guarantee that its the best one. The sizzler had cream cheese chicken, mac and cheese in bell pepper sauce, corn cheese nugget ( a big one) and spaghetti with three huge fries. The sizzler didn't have too many elements but whatever it had were simply great. The chicken was cooked perfectly and tossed in cream cheese mixture. The mac and cheese tasted perfect as it was my first time I had such combination. I love spicy and that's why the bell pepper combination perfectly worked for me. It's a must order thing if you love Sizzler. Overall Verdict - I loved the entire food which we had here. The experience was exceptional. The positive friendly vibe you get here makes you stay more and visit again. A must visit place if you're in Kalyani Nagar Area.
