We stopped for breakfast this morning--and it was very very good. I got the aporreadillo, with some green juice, while the wife got huevos al la pasilla with coffee. The waitresses were constantly moving to see what we desired and they were knowledgeable and bi-lingual....More

“PORK RIBS STEWED WITH SPICES IN A FIRE-ROASTED TOMATO AND CHILI SAUCE” Check it out under local favorites. Every year when I return to Zihua, I always order this dish at Carmelitas. It is a can’t miss!

This is my third visit to Carmelitas in a week- one breakfast and two lunches. Everything from the service, the freshness and preparation of the food to the ambience, is excellent. It’s a little oasis on a busy street, and although you might hear traffic,...More

We are a family business for over 20 years we were located within the Airport Zihuatanejo, the business was called "Snack Bar - El Mirador"; but in 2008 we decided to leave the anonymity and moved to town with a new "Carmelite Cafe" concept. The mission of Carmen and Don Jesus was always clear, offer our customers the best dining experience in Zihuatanejo. During these years we have been aware of the importance of treating our guests like family. We pride ourselves everyday to trust Cafe Carmelites to treat at home; therefore, we insist that the recipes of Mrs. Carmelita, always keep the flavor of the Mexican family kitchen. We will always have an eye to providing the best quality in each of our dishes; leaving aside, a friendly smile and a humble to serve our customers heart. We cook for you like for our own home, without shortcuts, no frills, with love.
