Let us introduce you to La Gabacha.
We love good food, so we’re always excited when a new restaurant opens up in Los Cabos. La Gabacha is one of the newest spots, and located in the historical center of San Jose. The amazing La Gabacha team focuses on good home cooking (something customers will certainly appreciate) with a menu of “world food with a Mexican twist.” By day, enjoy a DELICIOUS Mexican coffee and egg sandwich. By night, sip on fresh locally inspired cocktails and tasty Baja-style tamales. Keep an eye out for the roast beef, homemade cakes and breads, and more. And the best part of all … La Gabacha will try to match your cravings! How great is that?!?
La Gabacha is owned and operated by the fabulous Marina. She was raised in Los Cabos, moved to the states and held a great, but demanding job for a number of years. When you speak with her, you’ll learn that she left that corporate job to travel the world, and it was that journey which brought her back to her roots where she could be “close to family” and “where [she] thought La Gabacha would have a special place reserved.”
Wondering what La Gabacha means? Marina says La Gabacha is her. La Gabacha is that little girl that was born in the U.S. and raised in Mexico, but nevertheless was always picked on for being a ‘gringa.’ In the end, as Marina puts it, “I am back in my town with the pride of experiencing the best of two cultures, and appreciating what I have seen of the world.”
You’re coming to the restaurant to eat (of course); but Marina created La Gabacha for the people and the experience as much as the food. Marina shared that she wants “all visitors to feel at home. Like they’re on a friend’s patio or at the dining table of their favorite neighbor. [La Gabacha is] a place where they can enjoy a good book and good conversation or just a place to relax in the middle of a typical Mexican town.” If you have the chance to meet Marina (which isn’t hard, she is there seemingly morning, noon and night taking care of patrons!), say hi and enjoy learning a little bit more about the restaurant. You won’t regret the conversation or the visit to La Gabacha.
La Gabacha is located just a few blocks from the famous San Jose del Cabo Mission, and features both indoor and outdoor seating.
