Restaurant Details

This is one of those "don't-y'all-go-at-once" reviews. It's just too small. Slipped into a 12-foot wide sliver of a strip-center storefront, The Triangle Cafe is tiny. It's also run entirely by one married couple, making it the quintessential mom-and-pop operation (she's up front, he's in the open kitchen) - except "Mom" and "Pop" aren't your typical café-culture couple at all. Both are Mexico City natives, and "Pop," at least, is from a very prominent family. He trained at the Cordon Bleu in Paris and at hospitality school in Switzerland. This couple presumably could live anywhere, but they have selected San Antonio because they, like many Mexican national expats, feel comfortable here. They feel especially comfortable in the "village" atmosphere of Leon Valley, the restaurant's location. I never would have found this place if not for a reader tip, so a certain local, and a loyal customer base is clearly working for them after only about six months. Turns out there's a reason for that loyalty.;- Ron Bechtol
