Enjoy the
Flavors of
Latin America

Carambola – or star fruit – is a beautiful tropical fruit that can be found in traditional markets all over Latin America. Its flavor is bright, crisp and fresh…it represents all the qualities that we strive for through each of the products that we create and offer here at Cafe Carambola.


our story

Welcome to
Cafe Carambola

This colorful little eatery has been serving up big flavor in scenic Coeur d’Alene, Idaho for the past 15 years.

Husband and wife team Carlos and Colomba Aguilar lovingly recreate and serve the foods from their native Mexico and from many other Central and South American countries. Chef Colomba takes charge of the kitchen and gives each dish a perfectly balanced brightness that dances on the palate while Carlos charmingly ensures that each customer can’t wait to come back for more.

Cafe Carambola

We used to live on a white sand beach in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula that greeted us each morning with the view of the loveliest, most turquoise water we could ever dream of. We left that behind to start a new life and a new dream in the gorgeous city by the lake, Coeur d’Alene. We love serving this community and sharing a bit of home with its residents and visitors! We look forward to serving you soon.
