What is Cafe La Bamba?

Boasting a southwestern motif and serving Tex-Mex dishes, Cafe La Bamba is currently used as a private dining location for VIP Tours for breakfast and opens for lunch later in the day to general admission guests. 

During the lunch hours, guests can mobile order via the Universal Orlando Resort app and have their meal delivered straight to their table. In our opinion, it is an excellent hybrid with quick-service pricing and an almost full-service experience. 

Where is Cafe La Bamba located?

In Hollywood, which is in Universal Studios Florida.

Cafe La Bamba – OI fun facts

A plaque reads: "Historical Hollywood Landmark - established in February, 1904, the Hollywood Hotel became world famous for its celebrity guests and parties. During the 1930's Louella Parsons popular radio broadcasts were made from the hotel. Thursday night dances were held every week for 53 years until the hotel was closed in 1956."
The history of the original Hollywood Hotel is featured on a plaque outside of the venue

Cafe La Bamba was originally designed as part of a “Hollywood Hotel” façade, and, as such, the venue went unused for many years. It later became home to Universal’s Superstar Breakfast and then briefly served lunch on a seasonal basis before assuming its current, exclusive role as a private lunch location for VIP Tours.

During Halloween Horror Nights, guests on private RIP Tours will find the venue decorated with spooky props and serving such themed food and desserts as eyeball cupcakes and “worms and dirt” pudding.
