Fodor's Review

The waiters are brusque, the building is old, and the decor couldn't be plainer. But you'll find good, hearty, and cheap fare at this always-popular spot. The most expensive main dish here costs about $4—but side dishes are extra. Middle Eastern and standard Yucatecan fare share the menu with vegetarian specialties: meat-free dishes include tabbouleh and spongy, lemon-flavor spinach turnovers. Shopkeepers linger over grilled beef shish kebab, pita bread, and coffee.

Some elderly couples have been coming in once a week for decades. An English-language menu, which has explanations as well as translations, is essential even for Spanish speakers. Café Alameda is open from 8 to 5.
