Cozy hideaway, authentic puebla cuisine

We love this place in East Boston, corner of Lexington and Brook . Last time we walked one hour each way, and it was worth it. Wonderful mole sauce, often specials like Poblano pepper stuffed with chicken, pork or beef. Love the watercress salad. Wonderful guacamole. Margharitas available... read more

We were looking for a place for a late breakfast during our visit to Boston. Found this place from TripAdvisor and it was everything we needed. Very laid back atmosphere in a mainly Spanish speaking neighborhood, families, workers and the odd tourist like us. The food was well prepared and the portions sized to match your hunger. I'd definitely visit... More

We found Angela's while searching for a Diners, Drive-ins and Dives restaraunt in Boston. We've had good luck following Guy's lead and Angela's was no exception! We had a late lunch before catching our flight home from vacation (Angela's is close to the airport) so we didn't try what Guy did while visiting. He had a breakfast item. I had... More

Angela's Café is very small. The food is excellent. I went on April 5 with my family. We were told 5-10 minutes well worth the wait. We decided to wait. I looked around the restaurant and saw that there was only one table that would fit the 5-10 minutes the other tables appeared to be just ordering or reviewing the... More

All the food here looked really fresh, colorful, and very appealing. However, I had the Huevos Rancheros, and they were AMAZING. I hope I'll be back in Boston at some point to try something else off of the delicious looking menu!

Who would have thought that 3 Mexicans will go to Angela every day while in Boston?? It was addicting! The food was even better than in Mexico. The breakfast was amazing, great chilaquiles, very good breakfast burrito, but the highlight of our meal was the Mole Poblano De Angela which was absolutely delicious (Also come with Rojo and Verde) Don't...

Went here with a few other people after we saw them featured on "diner, drive thrus and dives'. The food was very good, the drinks were awesome. The mole sauce was great but better with the chicken than the pork loin, I guess my husband was expecting the cut of loin to be thinner. The cafe con leche was excellent.... More
