Café Colbar stands for Colonial Bar in short, and this cafe is the eminent elder of all the indie cafés popping out these days. You probably cannot find another similar to Colbar. Hidden deep in the recesses of Portsdown Road, Colbar serves authentic Hainanese-style Western food at very affordable prices.
It was first opened in 1953 as a canteen for the old British Army Barracks, and it's safe to say that it has retained it's initial character. This rustic little hideout, with their retro interiors and furniture, absolutely has the ability to bring you back to the days of yesteryear.
