Mi Tierra Cafe Mural
In 1941, Pete and Cruz Cortez opened a little three-table cafe for early-rising formers and workers at San Antonio's Mercado. Sixty years later Mi Tierra Cafe is a world-famous landmark - the place hometown regulars and hungry tourists go for authentic Mexican food and a warm Texas welcome.
Pete's and Cruz's children and grandchildren continue the family tradition of good food and big-hearted hospitality at mi Tierra, which is still located in Market Square, El Mercado.
