GratiTuesday: A Cuppa Gratitude

When I first saw this café along one of the pretty pedestrian walkways in Oaxaca, I, of course, had to stop for a cup of coffee and to take a few pictures.


Comida que hace bien

(Food that is made well)

Therapia y Cocina, con Alma y Corazon

(Therapy and Cooking, with Heart and Soul)


Not only was I grateful for the smile this café served me along with my coffee, I was doubly grateful that it included a side helping of a GratiTuesday post.

El secreto en Gratitud es hacer las cosas con amor

(The secret to gratitude is to do things with love)



By the way, did you notice the menu board out front in the first picture? Least you think they were charging $20 US dollars for a Café Americano or a Café Expreso, or $30 US dollars for a Cappuccino, the current peso to US dollar conversion rate is about 18.9 to one. The price of those coffees is around $1.06 and $1.59… that is something to be grateful for!

  1. I love seeing and reading about these “snippets” of your current trip to Oaxaca, Janis. The buildings are so cheery and colorful – many reasons to smile. 🙂

    1. We couldn’t get over the prices, but that’s why there is a big expat community there. I got used to dividing the peso price in half, then moving the decimal point one to the left. It was close enough, and usually quite surprisingly inexpensive.

  2. How could one not be drawn in to such a delightful little cafe? Looks like a wonderful place to stop & sit awhile.

  3. Now you’ve made me want to go to Oaxaca. When I was in Queretaro in February the exchange rate was even MORE favorable, if you can believe that. Almost 21 pesos to the dollar!

    1. You would love it, Shelley! Wow, 21 pesos to the dollar… I thought our exchange rate was good. I guess it is constantly floating, but ours never got much over 19 – and that was just for about a day.

  4. What a great name for a cafe! Thanks for sharing. I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about gratitude in case you have time to look? Sam 🙂
