“Good Food, Friendly People”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

My friend John and I eat at Ritchie 88 once or twice every week. The food is prepared with care and dining on the patio is always a delight. My favorites are the omelettes, molletes, infrijoladas and greek salads. And the cappuccinos... they're great!

“Perfect--right off the bus lunch!”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Everything we had here was fresh, most of the spices come from the garden out back. I went back twice in a day, as it is right off the plaza with cheap, healthy options!

The other great surprise was that they had everything kid-friendly, including high chairs, kid plates, and were very welcoming.

Try the Italian sodas, Francés omelette, and my husband said the coffee was even better than the famed Café el Grano.

“Great food and wonderful hosts”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Ritchie's has lovely salads. I like the ensalada roja with apples, strawberries, nuts and reduced balsamic. Also a favorite the spinach salad with peaches and cranberries. My husband likes their breakfasts. Their hash browns are crispy and spiced well. They have sandwiches and hamburgers. The owners are Patricia and Luis; a sweet, friendly couple. Their prices are very reasonable and the restaurant is right across the street from the plaza on Colon. I recommend it highly.

“Hidden Treasure”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Richie88 is located in the heart of Ajijic, steps away from the Village Plaza. A small friendly coffee shop with a selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and such and a nice breakfast menu. We have visited Richie88 a number of times and were always very pleased with the quality of food and the friendly service by the owners Patricia and Louis. All the salads we tried are outstanding as is the selection of sandwiches. The home made soups are delightful.
The court yard patio is very cozy, away from the traffic noise. A selection of coffee's, tea's soft drinks, beer en wine is available.
They only serve breakfast and lunch from 9 am - 4 pm from Tuesday through Saturday.
We highly recommend to try this hidden treasure, a great place to meet your friends or just to relax and enjoy a nice meal.

“Delicious lunch, lovely courtyard and friendly owners.”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

Nice location near the Ajijic square. Such a friendly welcome by the owners Luis and Patricia. Escorted to a nice courtyard with soft music playing. The husband had the hamburger special with a salad and a tasty homemade dressing. Being a hot day I decided on the tortilla soup. One of the best tortilla soups I have had and I have had numerous ones all over Mexico.The food was well made and nicely presented. We had a perfect cappuccino after lunch and a homemade cookie and biscotti. Will for sure return to this nice spot. They offer breakfast and lunch. Cheers and happy eats.
