Great mexican food, wonderful staff – Cafe Silvestre's menu and food remind some folks of La Frontera and La Puenta because those two are later offshoots from Cafe Silvestre, having basically taken the same concept and recipes years ago from Gloria Ruiz, who founded Cafe Silvestre back in 1976.

It is Gloria's fabulous original recipes which have driven all three groups, but hers remains THE BEST. Her chile verde was, is and always will be the very best you will find anywhere. Same goes for her tamales with mole, her enchiladas and her rellenos!

Don't settle for the knock offs, THIS IS THE PLACE!

Yummy Salsa. – This is a favorite family dining spot for us. The food is wonderful, they always remember us and you really can't beat the price. They even have hamburgers and chicken strips for the little ones...and man..the fries are amazing! I would recommend it to anyone looking for a casual, affordable yummy mexican dining experience.

A small, comfortable example of Salt Lake's taste for Americanized Mexican food. – The Scene
It's small and worn, but cozy--the wait staff is so friendly that you'll almost feel like you're in somebody's home. The menu is remarkably similar to the many La Frontera and La Puente locations around town.

The Food
If you're hungry, go for the small combination--it's anything but small, including a taco, tostada, burrito and enchilada. Or bump it up to the large combo, adding chile verde. On weekend mornings, ask for menudo--it's not on the menu, but it's some of the best in town and an incredible bargain.
