“Always an excellent choice”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

I've only eaten here for lunch and have never been disappointed. They have a great menu with tons of choices. The food is excellent, very filling and well priced. The staff are always smiling and welcoming. This is THE place to choose if you are looking to eat somewhere downtown Red Deer.

“The Salsa is a favorite”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Cafe Pichilingue is by far the best little resturant in downtown Red Deer. Penny and Juan are always smiling and serve up a great meal whether breakfast or lunch. I have always had a great meal whether it was a breakfast wrap or soup and sandwich. The lounge is always a great spot for a cocktail and to be entertained by Jack. I would recommend this cozy downtown location to everyone.

“Great lunchtime spot!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

I was tempted to try this cafe after laughing my way through their online menu. They recommended several sandwiches and I settled on a simple grilled cheese and ham, salsa and Italian soda which rang in at about $14.00.

The food came out quick and the grilled cheese was tasty. The salsa was excellent - you could tell this was not scooped out of a jar, it was fresh and delicious!

Overall I'd come back. The patio is great for nice summer days.

“Great local food, feels like you're in Europe”
Reviewed 22 July 2013

Cafe Pichilingue is in the heart of downtown and has a welcoming feeling. When I entered, the restaurant was quite small, but it has a very rustic feeling to it. A lady walked in with some fresh veggies from the market that morning. We weren't sure what to do since they had no hostess so we approched the counter. You order and pay at the counter then you sit either inside or on the outdoor patio where you can listen to local music on Wednesdays and Thursdays. We were there for lunch on a Wednesday and it was wonderful. I had "The Big Squeeze" which is a chicken quesadilla with apples. The apples I think should have been a little bit more cooked, but it was good anyways. I would recommend eating here and I plan on visiting again. The Velvet Olive is a bar located on top of this restaurant. I've always wondered where it was and so if you want to have a drink upstairs, you're always welcome to.
