Casa Colombiana on Leeds’ Grand Arcade may rightfully call itself the home of pure Colombian coffee, but it’s so much more than that. Serving up some of the best Colombian specialties in Leeds, this restaurant has the freshest coffee and the most authentic South American cuisine this side of the Atlantic. With its laid-back, informal atmosphere and friendly staff, it’s the type of place that you can visit for any occasion, whether it’s for coffee, lunch or dinner.

The most sincerely authentic experience you’ll get in the area, alongside a group of brilliant staff
Great service. Lovely location- nice wine. Sadly food let them down and was bland and tasteless and dry.
Interesting food and a great atmosphere, but the best thing is the friendly service...you feel the welcome is genuine. Also, the staff are used to people eating before a performance at the Grand so, if you tell hem, they adjust their service.
Coffee lovers have known about Casa Colombiana for a while now, but many aren’t aware of its recent conversion into a full-service restaurant. A small, cosy eatery, this restaurant has a relaxed feeling that, despite its rather tight quarters, takes guests far away from their actual location in Leeds city centre to somewhere sunny, bright, and laid-back. With a staff that treats guests as if they’re family, there’s just something special about Casa Colombiana that one simply needs to experience to understand.
Melding beautifully with the wafting scent of coffee throughout the dining area are the smells of home-made, authentic, and skilfully-prepared Colombian cuisine. Enjoy starters like empanadas de queso or papas fritas before moving on to a tempting list of hearty mains. From vegetarian specialties like the arroz con vegetales (rice with vegetables) or the ensalada de granos (mixed bean salad) to meaty classics like chili con carne, the entrees at Casa Colombiana contain all the flavour and freshness you would expect from a Colombian kitchen, with reasonable prices and served with a smile. Conveniently located on Leeds’ Grand Arcade in the city centre, there’s no excuse not to visit this local favourite.
