Description: We are a family business for over 20 years we were located within the Airport Zihuatanejo, the business was called "Snack Bar - El Mirador"; but in 2008 we decided to leave the anonymity and moved to town with a new "Carmelite Cafe" concept. The mission of Carmen and Don Jesus was always clear, offer our customers the best dining experience in Zihuatanejo. During these years we have been aware of the importance of treating our guests like family. We pride ourselves everyday to trust Cafe Carmelites to treat at home; therefore, we insist that the recipes of Mrs. Carmelita, always keep the flavor of the Mexican family kitchen. We will always have an eye to providing the best quality in each of our dishes; leaving aside, a friendly smile and a humble to serve our customers heart. We cook for you like for our own home, without shortcuts, no frills, with love.

We had lunch here today and it was great. We ordered 4 coffees, an appetizer and 2 entrees for about 30 bucks which shoes they just have really great prices. Our waitress Liz was so kind and explained the menu to us since it is in Spanish. We met Carmelita and her daughter Carmen before we left and they were so kind and humble. Would definitely recommend this place if you are traveling to Ixtapa or Zihua.

A must for the best breakfast in Zihua. Garden setting with tourists and locals eating here. Open mainly for breakfast through lunch. You won't find better in town.

This place has zero views but you can't eat a view. The food was awesome people were really friendly. I highly recommend. We went for breakfast and they are now open for dinner. If we had one more day in Zihua. we would have definitely had dinner there. Give it a try!

Not the first time but always incredible - authentic Mexican style local breakfast dishes - amazing service. English spoken and good wifi - great coffee. Just grab a cab - all the drivers know it.
