Celebrating Mothers Day/Dia de las Madres

Mariachis, Margaritas, Molotes and More! Make Mama’s Day at Cafe Coyote

Did you know that Mothers Day in Mexico is celebrated a day earlier than in the U.S.? There is a good reason to celebrate! Being right on the border of Mexico means we get to celebrate Mothers Day twice isn’t that nice?

This year, Mexican Mothers Day, “Dia de las Madres,” is on May 10 and the U.S. Mothers Day is celebrated Sunday, May 13. According to Mexican tradition, the children of the honored mothers come to the family home on the evening before Dia de las Madres to thank their mothers for all their hard work in raising them. On the day itself, colorful flowers and gifts are given. Mothers are feted with a rainbow of flowers, food and festivities and of course lots of love!

In the U.S., we tend to take Mama to her favorite place to eat and shower her with flowers, chocolates and corsages. One definite thing both the U.S. and Mexican celebrations of mothers have in common is food and fun. That is why Cafe Coyote in historic Old Town is the perfect place to treat your Mama to the best in food, fun and festivities. Whether you’re saying, “Muchas gracias, Mama” or “Thank you, Mom,” Cafe Coyote is the perfect choice!

Cafe Coyote is now accepting reservations for Dia de Las Madres and Mother’s Day (May 10-13). Some of the scrumptious specials will include: Menudo, Molotes, Huaraches (shaped like sandals!), Pollo Boracho, Mole de Pollo, Cochinita Pibil and Camarones Mojo de Ajo.

Sweet Mama will love her Tres Leches Cupcake, Margarita Cheesecake or Sweet Pineapple Tamale dessert, as well.
Strolling mariachis and a complimentary Mexican paper flower for each mom complete the celebrations at one of San Diego’s premier Mexican restaurants.

Cafe Coyote Restaurant is at 2461 San Diego Avenue in Old Town. Phone number is 619-291-4695. For more information, visit www.cafecoyoteoldtown.com.

Café Coyote Celebrates its Staff for Dia de los Muertos

The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos or All Souls’ Day) is a holiday celebrated by Latin Americans across the globe. The holiday brings together families and groups of friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have passed away.

The celebration occurs on November 1st and 2nd in connection with the Catholic holiday of All Saints’ Day which occurs on November 1st and All Souls’ Day which occurs on November 2nd. Traditions include building altars honoring the deceased and visiting graves with these as gifts.

Café Coyote, located in the heart of San Diego’s historical Old Town, and San Diego premier traditional Mexican Restaurant and Cantina, will be celebrating its heritage and its tight-knit staff by participating in the Dia de Los Muertos celebration of life.

Café Coyote will host a staff-built altar, honoring our families and loved ones from October 27 until November 2.  From Oct 29-Nov 3rd, Café Coyote will be offering a traditional Dia de los Muertos  menu. Café Coyote invites and welcomes the San Diego community to join in on the event by contributing personal mementos and offerings to the altar, or just stop by and enjoy free Mexican Hot Chocolate on November 1st and 2nd!

See you there!
