Macondo Café is a leafy little slice of Colombia, hidden in the backstreets of industrial Salisbury, serving authentic Colombian cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Passionate about sharing their love of Colombia with their customers, owners Miriam and Jaime invite diners to take a culinary journey from the jungles of the Amazon to the snow-capped Andes and the jewelled seas of the Caribbean.

Prepared by a Colombian-born chef and served by warm and friendly Spanish speaking staff, there are more than 80 regional Colombian dishes on offer including a few new ones that loyal customers might not be familiar with.
