One of the things I look forward to most after a weekend night out is the delicious and affordable brunch that awaits me at my neighborhood favorite, Angela’s Cafe in East Boston. Angela’s Cafe specializes in Mexican cuisine from the city of Puebla and has two locations — the original location in Eagle Hill, and a newer location in Orient Heights.
In a word, Angela’s is consistent. The food is always fresh and prepared with care, the service fast and friendly, and the atmosphere festive yet relaxed. Whether I’m dining for breakfast, lunch, brunch, or dinner, I’ve always had an enjoyable time at Angela’s Cafe. In the morning, the breakfast plates are a great deal because they come with coffee. You can never go wrong with Huevos Rancheros, but if you’re looking to be a bit more adventurous, try the Huevos Poblanos — with avocado, cactus, ham, and chipotle sauce.
My dinner entree of choice at Angela’s is the Enchiladas de Mole Poblano, which can be ordered vegetarian or with chicken or pork. As a big mole fan, I can attest to the fact that Angela’s Cafe makes some excellent mole. For drinks, you can’t go wrong with Angela’s Sangria or a classic lime margarita, but my favorite is the non-alcoholic agua de jamaica, a sweet, dark magenta tea made from hibiscus. Angela’s Cafe is an essential stop for foodies in East Boston, so hop on that Blue Line and come on out to Eastie for a delicious taste of Puebla!
