During one of our latest weekend getaways, we dropped in at Kafe Kalik, a very welcome addition to a Priority Pass lineup that doesn’t currently feature any other lounges or restaurants at Fort Lauderdale International Airport (FLL).
Kafe Kalik is located in Terminal 4, which is currently under construction, as FLL is undergoing changes to connect all terminals within the airport. After passing security, you’ll want to make a left and walk through a few short and empty hallways that lead to the south side of the terminal. From there, you’ll see Kafe Kalik across from gate G6, next to Burger King.
If arriving into another terminal at FLL, it may be easiest to exit security and take the shuttle to Terminal 4. Otherwise, plan on about a 10 minute walk between terminals.
Kafe Kalik is a comfortable Caribbean-inspired restaurant, and has a fun aesthetic that includes colorful booth seating, leaf-shaped ceiling fans, tiki coconut decorations and Reggae music. We arrived at 4pm on a Friday and it wasn’t at all busy (nor was the airport), but did start to fill up at about 6pm.
Kafe Kalik, like most Priority Pass restaurants, offers a $28 credit per person — which you’ll find is actually quite difficult to eat through at this location since most menu items are around $10-$14. Menu options were more limited than what you’d see at an off-airport location, but it had the basics.
Given that we’d just been served meals on our inbound, we weren’t too hungry, so we decided to order a small variety of finger foods. We settled with the KK Rooster Wings, “Junkanoo” Nacho Chips and Pepperoni & Mozzarella flatbread pizza.
There were only 3 other parties seated when we arrived and service was quick. All 3 dishes arrived to the table within 15 minutes, as did a whole handful of napkins and moist towelettes.
Overall, we were pleased with everything we ordered. Realizing we hadn’t even come close to hitting our full $56 Priority Pass credit, we decided to wrap up the meal by sharing a Tum Tum cocktail, which we really enjoyed.
It’s great that we could order 4 menu items and have the entire bill covered (not including gratuity).
We’d highly suggest grabbing a booth, as they have two outlets if you need to recharge or get some work done.
For those who are based in or frequently connect through FLL, Kafe Kalik is a great reason to have a Priority Pass membership. The service and food are great, and the booths are an excellent space to lounge in and recharge at.
