We started out as a "Little Mexican Cafe", at the location 1571 Sherman Ave, in Evanston. As the business slowly grew, we had to find a larger location. That is how we ended up here at 1010 Churuch St. in Evanston. 

  My name is Porfirio, I'm the chef/owner of That Little Mexican Cafe. My family and I would like to welcome you to our cafe. Every morning I go to the market to find the freshest meats and vegetables possible. In the summer I will go to the farmers markets, as there are many to choose from in the Chicago area. I am from the town of San Gabriel in Central Mexico. I learned most of my cooking from my mother. I have tried to replicate her recipes as I remember growing up and hope you will enjoy!

Buen Provecho,


Porfirio Balderas
