La Mariposa

One of our favorite places to eat in downtown Queretaro is called La Mariposa.
It has been open since the 1940s. It serves traditional Mexican food and sweets
in a very laid back diner type atmosphere. The boys love eating there.
I made that drawing while waiting for our food, inspired by the vintage wallpaper :)

I really LOVE everything about butterflies!! And I like the spanish name 'mariposa'. If I make a drawing myself, it's all about mariposa's too. Or if I ever start a shop I want to integrate 'mariposa' in the name and my work. Your post came at the right time for me and made me smile.

That looks gorgeous - both your drawing and the décor at this café.

I wish you'd write on how you sketch and draw (and paint!) - I'd read/buy it! :)

Parece un lugar muy acojedor y perfecto para cenar.
Yo suelo dibujar mientras espero pero si los manteles son de papel, sobre ellos, y allá se quedan. No tan bonitos como los tuyos, evidentemente.

Love your drawings . My mom does pen and ink and she really loves your work too. She's in her eighties and she brings over a few sketches a week for me to post on her etsy site. If you like you can see her work at "jodidoodles" . Just between you and me she would be thrilled if you left a comment. Thanks

Mi Mama me llevaba a este lugar a tomar limonadas por ahi de los 70's. Es fantastico que todavia siga ahi y que mamas todavia lleven a sus hijos. Mil gracias por compartir tus fotos y notas.

Efectivamente "La Mariposa" es un lugar que debes visitar en Querétaro, mañana 25 de Julio es aniversario de la Fundación de la Ciudad, imagina como estará el lugar de frecuentado. Saludos desde Puebla, México.
