The journey of success is never an easy or straightforward route. In 2013 after noticing a gap in the Ottawa market for Mexican ‘desserts’ we decided to venture out on the route that many new Canadians dream and hope for.
To test the market we purchased a custom-designed “Churro cart” and applied for the Street Food Vendor Program and was awarded a street permit through the City. Success was immediate – and you can now find the “Mr. Churritos” churro cart at all of our major festivals.
In May 2017, we decided to open a café specialized in what we do best, churros. We named it “La Catrina” and it showcases the culture, the sweet delicacies, the language and “La Catrina” the Dame of Death of Mexico. We wanted to convey a mortar Mexican styled dessert bar that would offer not only the tastes of Mexico but showcases our special tradition “Dia de Los Muertos”.
We offer a great variety of churros, from Tradicionales rolled in cinnamon and sugar to our Churro Bowl topped with delicious locally made ice cream.
Try our authentic Mexican tortas. We have 4 varieties: Pulled Chicken, Pulled Beef, Ham & Cheese and La Catrina Special (Ham / Cheese / Salami). All Tortas have beans, mayo, tomato, onion and avocado.
Try our made from scratch Tres Leches Cake, our Dulce de Leche Cheesecake and decadent Molten Lava Cake.!
We offer Merry Dairy ice cream, local and made from scratch. Must try our Mr.Churritos flavor!
From our Mexican coffee with vanilla and cinnamon to Lattes and Cappuccinos. Add a shot of flavor or spike your coffee with Baileys, Kahlua or Liquor 43.
We are a licensed establishment and offer a good selection of beers, and other drinks, from Horchata and Jamaica to Milkshakes and Jarritos.
