OK OK Enough about the Flu What's your number one Café in all of Mexico

Mine is The Red Cabbage Or Café El Repollo Rojo at Calle Rivera del Rio 204 A, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mx.
Best Mole ever, great fish/seafood & desserts at reasonable prices, Dinner for two with tip under $30 US. My wife adores the Warm Spinach Salad.
Lola Bravo the owner was the Manger of Chez Elena at the Los Cuatro Vientos for about 25 years. A Native of Colorado this Mexican/American has been living in PV for over 35 years.
The Restaurant is charmingly decorated & the service is the best anywhere!
Check it out on your next trip.

Thanks Stewbear

Yeah, wonder about their "health inspections" at the cafes there. Would be shocking if they bribed the health inspector to let them pass. Naw, a bribe in Mexico?? That would never happen!!!It's such a non-corrupt place.

Actually there are very strict inspections of restaurants in Vallarta. Your post shows you are not a local.

I prefer El Arrayan, a far more varied menu and more tables.

I'm in Guadalajara and love going to Cafe San Pedro in Tlaquepaque. It's right in the "portales" with a quiant setting in a picturesque arts and crafts village great coffee, great sandwiches and good people. What else could one ask for?

OMG, hands down it is Las Ranas in Puebla. The best tacos arabe. They have a big pineapple on top of the meat spit and it drains pineapple juice down on the meat that they slice for the tacos. It was so inexpensive and it was one of the culinary highlights off all my many trips to Mexico. There was an impromptu group of 4 bongo players in the cafe last time I was there.

Plenty of places fail health inspections in the US, what is your agenda ? are you just blatantly anti Mexican ?
I've seen far cleaner kitchens here than some I've seen in the USA.

Carbon- I understand that corli33 was recently released from the Mental ward in his home stay due to reduced budgets. He is to be pitied rather than censure. Really sad that we will not/can not help such sad individuals.

Reminds me of "Harald" from a few years ago on the Caribbean forum, his beef was with The Bahamas.....he would be banned & come back with a different name.

(corli has too much time on his hands. Bashing all things Mexican is his outlet for his anger at illegal immigration.)

I love Casa de Pan and Naturalisimo in San Cristobal de las Casas. And La Zahanoria (sp?) in Puebla. As you can see, I like vegetarian food.

And if I can add a bar/music venue, Club Revolucion in San Cristobal de las Casas is the greatest club anywhere in the universe.
