Cafe Juanita owned and operated by the academic, artisitc, philanthropic and gorgeous Jane Bauer where it is obvious she personally takes pride in every aspect of your experience. Up above the ground, shaded by lovely trees we sit in little balconies taking in the sights below right across from the auditorium and steps from the beach. I've gone alone many times to have a breakfast of a multitude of ingredients in a perfectly fresh omelette. Lunch with friends, especially on a Friday for her famous Friday Fish Tacos (which as recently taken to the streets in Frida's Fish Taco truck) - what a great idea!
The ultimate experience is her dinner specials (I call them her house parties) that recognize the current calendar day such as Chinese New Year's, Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving where people vie for reservations, dress the part, partake in lovely activities like flying candle boxes, reading poetry (the academic touch), limericks, discovering their chinese horoscope. It's my experience that it becomes a dinner party for 18 hosted by the seriously talented Jane. Her dinner menus vary with the day's special (with options) divided into courses and are expertly prepared by her talented staff. If simply stated, Cafe Juanita's is an experience that you will want to be part of over and over again. Did I say that it is so popular, you must remember to get a reservation? Treat yourself to one of the TOP experiences in Huatulco, you will remember it forever.
Shared within the intimate restaurant is Jane's Chocolate & Chilies cooking school and event catering, The Eye Magazine of which Jane is the editor, a variety of must have indigenous items, books in the quickest turnaround library, information on what is going on (often one of her own philantropic events that raise funds for real people that get all of the proceeds) information and tickets for upcoming community events. Did I mention that she is YOGA Huatulco at 8 a.m. infront of the ocean right beside her restuarant. She is a going concern, an authentic perspective, a Huatulcan legend and her restaurant demonstrates such HIGH standards in every bite you savour.
