    The Oaxacan Coffee Company: Hot chocolate is worth to die for

    by fachd Updated Dec 17, 2013

    The Oaxacan Coffee Company near Santa Domingo sells the best organic coffee and especially their hot chocolate is worth to die for.

    It is only small shop but it has friendly and relax atmosphere with reasonable price. We had coffee and hot chocolate few times while visiting Oaxaca.

    We bought 1kg of their coffee beans and still enjoying it here in Canberra. Recommended to you guys for sure.

    Lobo Azul Café Tostadores: Cafe with interesting posters

    by fachd Updated Dec 16, 2013

    Lobo Azul Café. Now this is interesting café especially the posters on the wall. On the wall you have posters of Che Guevara, Woody Guthrie, Tainanmen Square Protest, Free Palestine, US Out Of Iraq, Its Time For Peace Legalize Marijuana, Freedom of Choice is worth fighting, mural of Buddha on the wall for and many others. I think the Lobo Azul Café is for leftist student to have coffee and chat.

    Inside there’s very big coffee grinder. I like the décor with the interesting posters. Not only the décor is interesting but more importantly the food is delicious.

    Sun-Thur: 7.30am - 10pm
    Fri - Sat: 7.30am - 11pm

    Gourmand delicatessen: Deli Gourmet Food

    by fachd Written Dec 4, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gourmand delicatessen is great for escaping Mexican Oaxacan food. We went there for lunch. The service was quick and the staffs were welcoming. It has casual atmosphere. The food is fusion with strong western influence and reasonable price.

    I ordered bangers, it was delicious and not the same as bangers you get in Australia. The sausage was great and it was serve with potato salads instead of mash potato. The non-alcoholic mojito is worth to die for, it compliment each other. I recommend this deli to anyone.

    Favorite Dish: Try the Bangers, the sausage was great and it was serve with potato salads instead of mash potato. The non-alcoholic mojito is worth to die for, it compliment each other.

    Hotel Victoria Restaurant: Mexico's culinary capital

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Apr 16, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This 5-star hotel has a well regarded restaurant which serves excellent regional and continental cuisine and offers superb views.
    The city of Oaxaca has long been considered "Mexico's culinary capital." The most notable aspect of Oaxacan cuisine is its variety of moles, a type of complex sauce.
    Hotel Victoria Restaurant was the place where I tried the famous Mexican Dish called Mole. It contains many ingredients and however everyone has it's own recipe it always contains chocolate.
    The hotel has an open air restaurant with fabulous buffet breakfasts, (as well as a la carte lunch and dinner).

    El Famoso Restaurant: Mexican buffet

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Written Apr 16, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    El Famoso Restaurant is located on the road to Mitla.
    We stopped at El Famoso on our way back from Santa Maria del Tule to Tehuantepec. It has a rustic Mexican buffet.
    There were some good choices to be found. Several soups were all excellent as was the spread of cold salads and fruit. The moles and guisados were average to good depending upon what one chose. There was a grill with tasajo, cecina, chorizo and chicken available. The tasajo was forgettable, but the cecina and chorizo were pretty decent (no one tried the chicken). Desserts were average. The limonada (made con gaso, with sparkling water) was outstanding. Tortillas hecho a mano were absolutely divine and hard to stop eating. We watched the senora make them, cook them on the comal and then come to our table....
    Cold Corona beer was very good that very hot day!

    La Primavera: Good local food with a view

    by DSwede Updated Jan 13, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are no shortage of restaurants and cafes in the central areas and tourist streets. La Primavera is a cafe and restaurant along the side of the main plaza. The large trees provide shade on the hot days and the busy crowd in the plaza offers lots of people watching opportunities.

    The restaurant is fairly good, but due to its location it may be a bit on the expensive side, but then again it is not unreasonable. The staff may or may not speak English, but I don't know since we were speaking Spanish. The menus however have both English and Spanish.

    Favorite Dish: The restaurant has a lot of options with mole and other Mexican salsas. I'd recommend the Tlayudas, which are like a Mexican style pizza. The

    Hacienda Sta. Martha: More food than you could ever eat.

    by Travmad Written Mar 8, 2010

    This is all local food. It's a buffet smorgasbord or cup runeth over. Just look have a look at the pictures to describe the amount of food here. You can try just about every Oaxacan delicacy here. Several different moles, a pig, a table full of salads. a meat table and a desert table. Be prepared to spend the entire afternoon here. It's great for kids and you may only see locals here as it's out of the way from the tourist crowds.

    Favorite Dish: Too many to mention.

    20 de novembre mercado: Local fare excelent prices

    by Travmad Updated Mar 8, 2010

    The theme here is local oaxaqueña food full throttle. If your veg or want your meat to moo you will find your fill here. Since there are many different stalls in the market you can choose most any that has other people sitting there and enjoy.

    Favorite Dish: Since I have been trying to cut meat out of my diet I could find vegetarian meals here very easy. Chili Relleno stuffed with cheese is my fav. It comes with sides of rice, beans and tortillas. I also like tlayudas because you can order whatever you want on them so they can have meat or not. Try them you will like it.

    A bit spicy? One of the stalls You will be eating with locals!

    Cafe del teatro.: very nice cafe with free wifi.

    by cachaseiro Written Jan 8, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cafe del teatro is a really nice cafe that is next to the theater as you might guess from the name.
    The decor is quite stylish and it´s the kinda place where you go for a good cup of coffee when you don´t mind paying a little extra for nice coffee in a nice setting.
    The cafe has free wifi too.
    Just get the password at the counter and you can be online for as long as you want.

    Cafe del teatro, Oaxaca.

    Jardin Socrates: Ice cream cravings?

    by leigh767 Updated Sep 3, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If the sweltering heat gets to you, an ice cream is definitely in order! The most popular place (for locals and tourists alike) is Jardin Socrates, right next to La Soledad Church. The ice cream there is about American prices but it's well worth it!

    El Meson: Great steaks!

    by leigh767 Updated Feb 19, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I've followed the advice of my Fodor's guide book and tried this restaurant in the northeast corner of the Zocalo. Although it is very close to the Zocalo, it's less frequented by travelers, and instead is packed with locals (and as they say, go where the locals go). The restaurant has a cheap buffet (USD 8), and this place is most well-known for its steaks.

    Favorite Dish: Take my word for it and try the "arrachera" under the "carnes" ( which means meat) category on the a la carte menu. It is a juicy steak dish that will leave you hungering for more!
    I also tried the Oaxacan chocolate drink here.

    by dila Updated Jul 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I think it is a cafe for mostly students or young people. but it was nice. chairs maybe a bit uncomfortable. I heard some student telling some older couple that it is nice to go here and i needed something to eat and wait till the church went open.

    Favorite Dish: torta de quesillo a kind of round sandwich with beans luttece tomato avocado, cheese between. 18 pesos, fresh Orange Juice 18 pesos (mixed 23 pesos) Fanta 12 pesos
    served with i think hot picante sauce i didnot try but ithink it was like chilipeper.
    also had a large pure fresh orange juice and a fanta orange all together about 43 pesos. so probably i have a price wrong.
    menu was partly in english rest spanish

    Maria Bonita: traditional Oaxacan fare

    by rambling_rose Written Jan 27, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to Maria Bonita on a Wednesday night which meant it was pretty empty. Hopefully, things pick up at the weekend as the food here is great.

    Favorite Dish: Of course, they served the inevitable mole negro, which was delicious. I started with squash flowers, stuffed with cheese and fried in a light batter. Mouth-watering! Good tortillas too.

    Run together with a guesthouse and a cooking school, this restaurant serves gourmet Oaxacan specialities. Not cheap in comparision to other places, but lovely atmosphere and attentive staff.

    Favorite Dish: I had the squash blossom soup and mole negro. Excellent - tender chicken and delicous sauce. The bread is great too.
