Authentic mexican breakfast for sure! I had a breakfast burrito with potatoes and fried plantains and a chocolate chip pancake... read more

Great Mexican. Better than most West Coast stuff. Tasty, friendly and all homemade. A new favourite and worth travelling to. Highly recommended

This was a surprise discovery in the neighborhood. We didn't know that it had been on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. Our breakfast was delicious and so inexpensive. My husband had the Huevos Ranchera and loved it. I had bacon and eggs. The home fries were delicious. The service was great until we tried to pay. One would think they would... More

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 singly or in pitcher. Good mexican coffee, desserts. Colorful cozy decor, friendly... 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!
