To our Awesome Customers:

We would like to share with you some big changes coming to Café Bueno! Starting September 7, 2015 we will be open later hours! Our new hours will be Monday through Saturday 11am-9pm. We will still be closed on Sundays.

It was a difficult decision to change our hours of operation, since we always try to listen to our customers’ feedback. Customers enjoyed our breakfast hours, but many also wished that they could enjoy our Mexican food on Saturday evenings and later on weekdays. We also had to think about where our greatest passion of food resides. While everyone loves a good, classic American breakfast, our heart and soul lies in cooking for you our very best Mexican cuisine. Of course the best choice would be to stay open 24 hours and serve both!

However, due to the limited space in our kitchen, we are simply running out of room! It has been harder and harder t o find the space we need to prepare and store both Mexican and breakfast items. Our limited space was making it more difficult to prepare our scratch-made sauces, meats, beans, rice, home fries, etc. While we understand that there are ‘shortcuts’ in cooking that we could resort to – home fries and chorizo from the freezer, rice from a box and beans from a can, or sauces from a jar, that’s not how Café Bueno cooks! Our priority is always the quality of our product and the speed and efficiency of our service. We will only serve the very best, or not at all.

So, finally it came time for us to make a choice, and we did choose to eliminate our breakfast service and remove our American breakfast items from the menu.

This change will allow us to continue to serve the very best Mexican cuisine this side of the border! In addition, we will also be offering our authentic Mexican breakfast dishes all day! That’s right, you will still be able to enjoy Huevos Rancheros, Huevos con chorizo, Chorizo Omelets, Huevos a la Mexicana, and Chicken Fiesta Omelets all day long!

As always, we’d like to say thanks for being our customers. We know you have many choices and we are grateful that you choose us. We will continue to serve you the most delicious, authentic Mexican food from scratch, with the fast and friendly service you expect. Muchas Gracias!


Cafe Bueno is a locally-owned Mexican and American Cafe located at the intersection of East and 5th Streets. We are located in the same center as 7-11, about 3 blocks north of Shab Row. There is plenty of free parking in our large front lot.

Cafe Bueno serves authentic Mexican food, and yes, we are the real deal! Don’t miss trying our hand-breaded fish tacos, topped with radishes, cabbage, and served with cilantro salsa on the side, or our tacos al pastor, which is a combination of spicy marinated pork and pineapple, served on soft corn tortillas and topped with onions, cilantro, and fresh lime. Our salsa verde and salsa roja hot sauces are freshly made in-house of genuine Mexican ingredients, including tomatillos, jalapenos, guajillo chiles and chile de arbol. Our meats are all hand-cut, marinaded to perfection, and served on tacos or on a massive torta sandwich. The infamous torta cubana is a combination of steak, spicy pork, ham, hot dog, egg, lettuce, tomato, mayo, onion, jalapeno, and avocado. We also have daily specials showcasing other authentic Mexican dishes, such as tamales, sopes, huaraches, carne asada, chile rellenos, and many more…

So stop in soon for lunch or dinner!
