Mexican food is probably one of my favorite cuisines (here I go talking about food again). Good Mexican food, that is. And in the Central Florida area that’s been a little hard to come by in the past several years. Until now…at least in my opinion.
Colibrí Mexican Cuisine is a relatively new restaurant located in the charming Baldwin Park community. I’ve been wanting to try it for months-and-months; fear of a new restaurant not being so great, and a mediocre review published just after opening (not that I pay that much attention to critics of any kind) kept me from going. I gave in about a month ago though, and enjoy Colibrí’s food so much I’ve been there twice: the first time to celebrate my birthday (that’s my dish featured below), the second time with a couple of other folks.
Colibrí’s menu doesn’t necessarily offer anything innovative, per say, but the dishes they do offer are prepared well, are delivered quickly (even during busy times), and at affordable prices. If you’re interested in checking-out the restaurant for yourself, I would recommend visiting their website first to do a little “research.”

In addition to a quaint dining room and energetic bar, the restaurant offers-up outdoor dining by a lake. If the weather’s right, the outdoor seating could be a quite enjoyable experience.
There are a couple of things to consider if you plan on going to Colibrí for a meal:
1. Day of the week. Obviously dinner on a Friday or Saturday night might be busier than any other time. This can create longer waits, particularly given the restaurant’s dining room is fairly small.
2. Time of day. While I haven’t been to the restaurant for lunch, I would imagine it’s far less crowded than dinner.
3. Parking. There’s not much “standard” parking here, or really anywhere in Baldwin Park, for that matter. So keep in mind you might end-up having a bit of a walk to the restaurant.
