Mexican cafe

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, General Store

A great find in the El Pueblo Historic Monument area - a vegetarian Mexican cafe!

Their menu has expanded recently; as well as tamales, they now have various vegan sandwiches and burgers. Plus 'the best Mexican chocolate in Los Angeles' according to LA Weekly - and they'll make it with soy milk!!! You can also buy their home-made chocolate to take home to make your own (makes a great gift!), and they sell their tamales frozen to take home.

It's also a gallery & store for Mexican and Central American folk art. Opening hours can be a little erratic, especially if they've had a late evening the night before. But it's worth getting on their email list to get details of their shows - last one I went to was a flamenco demonstration, with meal and drinks included.

I happened to be in LA for two nights 14th 15th November 2006, meeting up with many of my internet friends on a round the world tour. One I met in LA in the 15th. I ate here twice and had delicious fresh salads each time, and VEGAN ice cream! Highly recomend ths delightful place.
