Mediterranean Cafe, South of Echo Park

A favorite place of mine is Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. A lovely, rustic, tropical paradise in the Mexican Riviera.
This year, along with a thousand other restaurants, there was a new little gem on one of the out of the way streets in Zona Romantica.
The Mediterranean Cafe and Bakery, run by Patty Saxonis (who, by the way, hails from Las Vegas) is a wonderful find. Patty, who looks a little closer to a showgirl than someone who would be slaving over a hot stove, is an extremely talented chef and an incredible baker.
The food is Greek and Italian and prepared fresh right in birds eye view in her open kitchen. Wonderful flavors.
The highlight is her baked goods. Cakes and pies, which, the dessert tray has no less than 8 to 10 freshly made that day! Choosing one is not easy, but I can vouch for the Pumpkin Pie made with real Vermont Maple, yummy.
Patty also gives private cooking lessons, will host your special event, and if you need a special cake for an affair, I can tell you, she's an amazing cake baker and decorator. What a cute little cafe on a side street in the Col. Emile Zapata neighborhood of Vallarta. If you are planning on being in Puerto Vallarta, I can highly recommend this restaurant, you won't want to miss it.
