At least since November 2016 Cafe San Angel, a popular dining place for both locals and tourists in Puerto Vallarta, MX, has been using Trump’s planned wall along the US – Mexico border to trump up business (pun intended) and poke a bit of snarky fun at our current President.
The waitresses, for instance, wear tee-shirts with things like “The best damn JAVA This Side of TRUMP’S WALL” emblazoned across the front, and the menu on the menu boards out front have been replaced with chalked messages that say things like “The Best Damn Burger This Side of Trump’s Wall” and “Keep Calm, You’re On The Fun Side of Trump’s Wall”.
The cafe, located in the Zona Romantica on Olas Altas, has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner for years and years, and the owners have always demonstrated a sense of humor. You could almost say that their humor has become as much of an institution in the city as the cafe itself has.
That’s an especially helpful attitude in these uncertain times, wouldn’t you agree?
BTW, if you happen to be in town during the USA’s Thanksgiving holiday, Cafe San Angel serves one of the best Thanksgiving Day meals in all of Vallarta, including roasted turkey and ALL of the trimmings. 😉
You can check the place out on their Facebook page if you’ve a mind to.
