“This place is consistantly GREAT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

I eat here several times a month and it's always great. They are family owned and operated so you have to be patient when it gets busy, but they are so gracious, the food is amazing, the soups are to die for, the sandwiches and tamales are always great. Just an all around great place.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

So good!!! The quesadillas are fantastic, especially the wonderful dipping sauce that comes with it. The salads and soups are very yummy as well.

“Good salad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

I ordered the black bean mango salad for lunch and it was good, but it was a bit pricey for the portion size. It was delivered on a huge platter but only covered 1/4 thereof?

“I already want to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012

My husband and I used Tripadvisor to help us select Cafe Carambola for our lunch. It was rated #1 and we would agree! The food was tasty and very fresh. I would recommend the tomato salad!

“We are so lucky to have this little jewel in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

Cafe Carambola is a tiny restaurant, open only for lunch with just a few tables. Every day the tables are completely filled, more than once, and for good reason. The food is so fresh, and when it's gone, it's gone. Colomba has a fancy degree from a culinary academy, and it shows. Don't think Tex-Mex, this is a far cry from the standard Mexican restaurant. The new tastes are always surprising.
Luckily, even though Carambola is only open for lunch, they do catering as well, and have helped me with several parties.
