We ate breakfast here three times this trip, and our attentive waiter remembered I was the tea drinker and my husband the coffee drinker, so on our third breakfast, he came to the table with a pot of water and tea bags, and a pot of coffee and breakfast menus! A truly lovely touch! You will have a hard time choosing from among the diverse wonderful breakfast items here, and you'll be tantalized with subtle flavors in the traditional Michoacan offerings and just as happy if you're merely in the mood for a simple omelette! Sometimes they offer jugo de mandarina (mandarine juice),which is a truly lovely way to start the day, but their fruit plates are a great choice as well. We tried several of the traditional Michoacan breakfasts and the sauces on these are magic. If they offered a cooking class, they couldn't keep me away! I'll return here again and again. The setting is quiet, wifi is available if you just have to, the sun pours in through amber window glass for a glorious light, the staff is personable and attentive and helpful, and the food is simply amazing.

Doña Paca is one of my favorite places to dine. There is no finer traditional food in Pátzcuaro. The professional members of the staff don’t “hover” (thank goodness!), but they are always there when you need them; the restaurant is impeccably clean; the food is always right on; right outside is the famous Plaza Vasco de Quiroga. What else could one ask for?

Had breakfast and shortly after got violently ill. No other explanation but the food. Took me three days to recover.

Patzcuaro doesn't have a lot of good restaurants, but Dona Paca is one of the best. The regional Michoacan cuisine includes several good fish dishes, chiles en nogada, chicken mole and other specialties. Desserts are better than average.
