Enjoyable ambiance on their little patio. Everything was very good - the hash browns were good - they actually made them themselves instead of the patties from Wal-Mart that remind me of McDonald's
The portions were reasonable, which is saying something for breakfasts in Mexico!
They offered fresh home-baked cookies and brownies for sale afterwards, which seemed odd considering we just had breakfast - but the cookies were to die for! Haven't seen anything like it in Mexico, and they are comparable to the best in the states!

My friend John and I eat at Ritchie 88 once or twice every week. The food is prepared with care and dining on the patio is always a delight. My favorites are the omelettes, molletes, infrijoladas and greek salads. And the cappuccinos... they're great!

Everything we had here was fresh, most of the spices come from the garden out back. I went back twice in a day, as it is right off the plaza with cheap, healthy options!

The other great surprise was that they had everything kid-friendly, including high chairs, kid plates, and were very welcoming.

Try the Italian sodas, Francés omelette, and my husband said the coffee was even better than the famed Café el Grano.

Ritchie's has lovely salads. I like the ensalada roja with apples, strawberries, nuts and reduced balsamic. Also a favorite the spinach salad with peaches and cranberries. My husband likes their breakfasts. Their hash browns are crispy and spiced well. They have sandwiches and hamburgers. The owners are Patricia and Luis; a sweet, friendly couple. Their prices are very reasonable and the restaurant is right across the street from the plaza on Colon. I recommend it highly.

Richie88 is located in the heart of Ajijic, steps away from the Village Plaza. A small friendly coffee shop with a selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and such and a nice breakfast menu. We have visited Richie88 a number of times and were always very pleased with the quality of food and the friendly service by the owners Patricia and Louis. All the salads we tried are outstanding as is the selection of sandwiches. The home made soups are delightful.
The court yard patio is very cozy, away from the traffic noise. A selection of coffee's, tea's soft drinks, beer en wine is available.
They only serve breakfast and lunch from 9 am - 4 pm from Tuesday through Saturday.
We highly recommend to try this hidden treasure, a great place to meet your friends or just to relax and enjoy a nice meal.
