A bit about the Cactus Cafe
Open since July 1990, the Cactus Cafe has become one of Loughborough's most popular restaurants.
The food is a freshly prepared fusion of classic and modern Mexican cuisine - start with the best Nachos outside Tijuana (made with our own special salsa, guacamole and mix of cheeses), roll your own fajitas with soft tortillas enveloping sizzling marinated meats and veggies, or be truly adventurous and try our very special mole with a fiery blend of chilli, nuts and chocolate.
We pride ourselves on our fantastically generous cocktails - all made to instil you with the passionate Latin spirit of Mexico! Add to that, a great range of beers, wines and spirits (including some very special tequilas) and there is something for every taste.
Customers are attracted to the Cactus for its lively, informal atmosphere. In Summer the big concertina doors are thrown open to provide a light and airy, Mediterranean feel with walls exhibiting vibrant paintings from local artists. In winter the intimate surroundings welcome you encouraging the rich spices and complex aromas to warm and relax you.
The Cactus also has a long standing reputation for providing great live music, particularly at our jazz evenings on the first Wednesday of each month with renowned artists such as Chris Conway and Andy Nicholls performing in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.
