Cafe El Dorado
Coffee and Bakery
241 Broadway, Chelsea, MA 02150
Located at the TILL Building on Broadway since 2020, Café El Dorado is a Colombian bakery run by husband and wife team Jenny and Carlos Camacho. The Camacho family founded the business 40 years ago, with the original store on Congress Street.
Café El Dorado is an airy, light-filled space, flooded with aromas of sweet baked goods and enticing savory pastries. Everything is baked on premises, and Jenny points out that many Colombian specialties are made from 100% corn flour, processed in house. For a quick snack, pick up a pretty pandebono, a Columbian corn flour roll that is warm, soft, and flavored with a hint of cheese. Don’t pass up the empanadas. These crisp and savory pastries can be stuffed with beef, chicken and potatoes, or with ham and cheese. They are perfect for eating on the go.
Sugar cravings? Treat yourself to churros, a crispy, perfectly fried ring of dough that puts the traditional Boston donut to shame. Especially popular here are the churros, served with creamy, sweet caramel con leche filling. Eat your churros with a cup of a hot Colombian coffee. Then, take a break and have a seat in the El Dorado cafe and enjoy the sounds of the busy city outside.
