Come visit the Cafe and check out how we re-decorated!
Caracas de Ayer Cafe is a place where Venezuelans and locals can come together and enjoy an Authentic Venezuelan dining experience. Our cafe is decorated with Venezuelan artwork that highlight the beauty of Venezuela.
Venezuelan food is unpretentiously delicious. Food made from traditional recipes keeping authenticity in flavors adapting to fresh local ingredients. Our menu is made from scratch with hard work, and passion.
Daily, our corn meal Arepas and Cachapas have become an alternative meal to hungry locals looking for healthy food, and we appreciate your support!
We decided to start this blog to keep you informed on all our changes. Cafe Azul started six years ago in the Arts District Hyattsville as a simple Cafe. Through the last six years our Cafe menu has evolved to serving Authentic Venezuelan food. We feel that our name does not reflect the true identity of our business. After careful thought we have decided to change our name to Caracas de Ayer.
Mickey Torrealba, Owner of Caracas de Ayer is from Caracas, Venezuela. Today the menu reflects the food he grew up eating in his hometown. Caracas de Ayer is a Venezuelan inspired business, and we are grateful to participate, contributing to the enjoyment of our community, and helping showcase our traditions.
Come over and try our delicious Homemade Arepas, Cachapas, Tequeños, Hallacas, Cachitos, Empanadas and Cuban Sandwiches. All our menu items are fresh and healthy.
