Cafe is nice, grocery store is better

Posted on 11 / 08 / 2013

The cafe has a menu with several vegetarian options, two of which are vegan. The salad I had was very nice, but more options would be good.

The grocery store is excellent. I bought a variety of foods and almond milk to keep me going while I was in Oaxaca.

I'm giving this 4 cows overall because of the grocery store. I'd give the cafe 3 cows.

Note: there are two Hidalgos in central Oaxaca. This place is on the one close to the bus station, not the one near calle Independencia.

Map is currently wrong. They are located on Hidalgo at the intersection of 5 de Mayo.

Pros: Vegan foods in grocery store, Close to ADO bus station

Oaxaca's best and most varied organic shop

This is a great place and I've been meaning to add it for a while. Keep in mind that the cafe and the grocery are in two separate buildings across the street from each other (both occupying one corner). I've enjoyed the tofu sandwich at the cafe, but the real gem here is the organic shop, stocking several imported veggie treats that you will find nowhere else in the city. They also carry a variety of organic specialties from nearby communities such as fantastic shiitakes, shallots, and arugula.

Also worth visiting the beautiful historical neighborhood as well. Owner is very friendly and is usually playing Brazilian or African music in the shop. Get to know this place!

Pros: Variety, Friendly owner, Rare products
Cons: Expensive

Best health food store in Oaxaca

As an American completely spoiled by stores like Whole Foods, I've been very thankful to have come across this charming little store that has more options for healthy and organic foods than any other I've seen here. And it's got a wonderful welcoming and friendly atmosphere created by the owner Claudia and her assistant. They make you feel like you're right at home. Highly recommended!
