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 loved everything we ate, but especially the mole enchilada's! The food was so good, we made a second visit on our way to the airport before we left town.
We'll come back to Zihuatanejo and a meal or two at Carmelita's will be at the top of our list!

In March 2017 myself and family had a lunch and dinner here . This was the best food and service we had on our week long stay in this area. We met Carmen , the owner and Sylvia our waitress on both occasions . Dinner even had entertainment. I give them the highest recommendation !!!!

From the moment we walked in the service was excellent. Best out of all the restaurants we have eaten at in Zihua. Food was equally as good. Highly recommend this place.

When me and my family came here Carmelita's was #2 out of 322 restaurants in Zihuatanejo so we definitely had high expectations. For sure Carmelita's deserves to be ranked top 10 places to eat in Zihuatanejo. The atmosphere is awesome, nicely covered from the nearby streets, the service is awesome, very accommodating and friendly, and of course the food is very good, it tastes both fresh, authentic, and tasty. The juice here is very fresh and has lots of variety, we also recommend the cinnamon coffee.
All in all, Carmelita's is comfortable, affordable, and a great place to visit during your trip to Zihuatanejo.

Totally Mexican and totally fresh. This place is not to be missed if you are near Zihuatanejo. We stopped in for breakfast and I would love to try lunch there as well. Also very resonable prices.
