Good place for breakfast - with great music

We stumbled across Lupe's (just around the corner from Trump Soho) and popped in for a late breakfast. It was quiet when we were there but the place still had a good 'feel' with very decent music playing. I had the torta egg sandwich and it was absolutely delicious. Lupe's has a retro, authentic... read more

I've had Mexican food throughout Los Angeles. Each please has a slightly different taste,depending on it's region. While it was quite tasty. The ambience is lively and fun. It was nice to eat some good Mexican food while in NY. They offer vegetarian and meat lovers options:-) all eggs are organic:-) Note: originally I had posted 4 stars but took... More

Needed somewhere close to a client meeting and gave this place a shot. OMG! Probably the best pork carnitas tacos I have ever had! Perfectly crispy and delicious. And they have my favorite red and green Habanero hot sauce on every table. Can't wait to go back to NYC and eat here again.

Enjoyed lunch here several times while working nearby. Nice menu with equal parts vegetarian options to meat, both sides of the menu are delicious and filling. I found the booths and tables always full but a short wait or it was easy to find space at the counter. Menu and approach is very much East LA as opposed to classic... More

Visited Lupe's after a long day of travel and sight seeing. Hungry, tired and "in need" of a margarita :) we decided to try out the Mexican place situated a stone's throw from our soho hotel. The service was quick and extremely hospitable. The margaritas were average, served from a dispenser on plenty of ice. An ounce more of tequila... More

Lupes is a very consistent and well priced Mexican which serves great taco salads and all the traditional Mexican dishes, tacos and burritos. Their cup of chilli verde is an excellent vegetarian soup.

this is the real deal where the locals eat when they want Mexican. try to sit outside and have a Margarita so the passing traffic can be jealous

I love mole ploblano and the chicken enchilada's mole here are some of the best. It's a small place with no ac but the trees out front keep the place cool even on high humid days. Service is fast and friendly. Four tables outside and only a few inside it can get crowded quickly, but you won't go wrong if... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
SoHo
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
