Yummy Mexican food!

The food here is very tasty! Service was fast, which was a good thing because we were hungry. The bread was very fresh and the coffee was yummo!!!

We ate breakfast here three times this trip, and our attentive waiter remembered I was the tea drinker and my husband the coffee drinker, so on our third breakfast, he came to the table with a pot of water and tea bags, and a pot of coffee and breakfast menus! A truly lovely touch! You will have a hard time... More

Doña Paca is one of my favorite places to dine. There is no finer traditional food in Pátzcuaro. The professional members of the staff don’t “hover” (thank goodness!), but they are always there when you need them; the restaurant is impeccably clean; the food is always right on; right outside is the famous Plaza Vasco de Quiroga. What else could... More

Patzcuaro doesn't have a lot of good restaurants, but Dona Paca is one of the best. The regional Michoacan cuisine includes several good fish dishes, chiles en nogada, chicken mole and other specialties. Desserts are better than average.
