Casa de Sousa

This vegetarian restaurant on Olvera Street receives mixed reviews from patrons. Some enjoy its quaint atmosphere, its veggie-friendly menu options, and its convenient locations. Others find the service sub-par and have a difficult time "figuring it out". The menu includes salads, tamales, and veggie burgers and sandwiches. They also feature Mexican hot chocolate and a variety of coffee drinks, many made with soy milk. Many of the menu items feature chocolate including the drinks and dessert tamales. There is no kitchen on the premises and since the food is delivered, some menu choices are not always available. This is a disappointment for those who visit with a taste for a specific dish. There are some frozen dishes, like tamales, that can be taken home and prepared. The restaurant is located in the El Pueblo Historic Monument area, making it a great option for those enjoying a historic tour of the area. The store features a small gallery where you can browse Mexican and Central American folk art pieces. The hours vary and can be quite erratic, so if you are counting on a visit, prepare for a bit of disappointment. There is a chance the restaurant, like others on Olvera Street, will close early on days when business is slower.
