La Carta


Just 10 minutes from Brisbane CBD, Macondo serves a vast array of incredible Latin Fusion dishes! Sit & while away the hours by the waterfall in our secret garden. We invite you into the magical world of Macondo!
Your hosts, Jaime and Mimi, decided to do something different alongside their transport company, and opened Macondo Café in January 2017. They wanted to share their love of Colombia and Latin America, its culinary and artistic culture, with the rest of the world. Jaime and Mimi warmly welcome you to exceptional service, a great atmosphere, and Latin Fusion culinary delights.
