In search of authentic Mexican coffee? Make a quick stop at Café Azteca. This quirky coffee shop is located downtown at 1409 E Commerce St. San Antonio, TX 78205. The owner, Tyler Ybarra, started his business when he was a student at Texas State University in San Marcos. At the coffee shop, you can find delicious cold and hot brew options. The traditional Mexican recipes include Café de olla, Mexican vanilla, mocha latte and, my favorite Chocolate de Abuelita. The atmosphere at Café Azteca is very comfortable and cozy, which makes it a great spot to study. You can also find Mexican sweet treats such as conchas and vegan-friendly doughnuts to have with your favorite coffee. If anyone is in search of a new coffee shop with a cultural atmosphere to enjoy traditional coffee, then I highly recommend visiting Café Azteca. I guarantee everyone will love it.
