Teresa & Alfonso Matias

Portrait of Teresa & Alfonso Matias in front of the Tequila Bar

Meet the owners of Teresa’s Mosaic Cafe! Teresa and Alfonso came to the United States in 1972 from the Mexican state of Oaxaca. Their small hometown of Santa Maria del Tule is well-known across Mexico for its wonderful variety of flavors and spices. Teresa grew up around the many spices and flavors of her mother’s kitchen.

The Matias family opened their first restaurant in 1984-- a small shack on the westside of Tucson. Thus, Teresa’s Mosaic Cafe was born! With lots of passion, their restaurant grew and became what it is today. Teresa has perfected the authentic Oaxacan and Sonoran recipes with plenty of her own sazón (unique, flavorful touch) and only the freshest ingredients… That’s exactly what Teresa’s Mosaic Cafe will welcome you with on every visit!
