Cafe Azteca is home to the best traditional homemade Mexican food. Over the years, the restaurant has become a regional favorite drawing in crowds from far away to sample the same authentic flavors used in Mexico. Come visit us today!
We want to start by thanking you for choosing Cafe Azteca. We love Mexico. It is our goal to share the love with you.
In 1994 Cafe Azteca opened its doors in Lawrence, the historical Mill City. Sensing a need for an authentic Mexican dining experience in the Merrimack Valley, we began our family owned and operated business with one dining room, paper plates and counter service only. With Antonio’s taste for elaborate and bold flavors, Cafe Azteca quickly gained much attention.
As the business grew we expanded our restaurant with a room dedicated to poetry and the arts. We wanted our customers to experience Mexico not only through cuisine but while viewing murals and poetry painted upon our walls. The walls display works by local artists from the community and the Essex Art Center, Latin American poets, and other great writers.
