A great restaurant with traditional Mexican food in Tijuana. Delicious artisanal coffee, tamales, tlayudas and very good service. I recommend the hot chocolate without sugar 100% cocoa and the tamale of three cheeses with mole, also the enmoladas.

They served me with warmth and politeness, even though I got there at closing time. The host was so knowledgeable of Tijuana and its history, and the food was great! Going back today.

One of the highlights of our trip was a lunch at Casa Cacao. They have a limited, but creative menu, mostly featuring delicious Oaxacan mole. I had an egg based tart, like an omelet, served on a plate of mole. Because it was in-season, they...More

I was so happy when I came across this little place and was even happier to sit down and enjoy our chocolate treasures right inside the cozy storefront. They have done a great job. I never would have guessed all of that was inside that...More

The food here is delicious! The tamales, the Oaxacan hot chocolate and the tlayudas are to die for. And the lady in charge is always so sweet. This is one of my favorite places in TJ!
