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
