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.
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.
Love the food, ambience and the cocktails. Staff very polite and friendly. Wonderful quirky setting makes you feel like your on holiday. Would recommend this to everyone 100%
great food and excellent service, great tastes and good vibe
Excellent food, hosting and cocktails!! I was sceptical about going there as it’s located in an arcade however from walking in the door we felt welcome. We even missed our cinema visit to have more as it was THAT GOOD!
