The journey to rebuild Café Mexico, one of Victoria’s favourite Mexican Restaurants for 31 years has been challenging to say the least. At last, Café Mexico is ready to re-open, its doors. It was a labour of love that sums up the reason for us to rebuild.
The shock of hearing the devastating news, “Café Mexico is on fire ”January 22, 2015, left us in disbelief (for days).A decision needed to be made, do we – build, sell, find a new location, or retire and take the money? After much thought, coupled with looking at a few other possible locations the decision to re – open Café Mexico and stay in Market Square was decided.
Anybody who knows Brad, who has owned Café Mexico for 31 years, knows he has never been afraid of a little hard work. Soon after the decision to re-build was made, the hard work began. Blood, sweat and tears ensued, having to overcome one road- block after the next and on and on.
We take our Sombreros off to all of you fabulous people who have supported us throughout this crazy, transitional period, opening dates changing, etc. and we are looking forward to seeing you all in Café Mexico soon.
We are thrilled to welcome and introduce Chef, Rigo Salas to Café Mexico and are excited to share his very creative and delicious Mexican Menu with you all.
A huge big Thank You to Shawn Soole for contacting us pretty much right after the fire happened with his vision of bringing Café Mexico back life. He has managed to do this and create one the biggest and best Mezcal based bars in BC.
– Brad and Hilda Olberg
