Sweetie’s Cafe and Catering/Roquitos Taqueria

Redding California is a great place to find a tasty bite to eat, and when I asked around about a Good Mom N’Pops feel of a Restaurant Cafe, I kept hearing Sweetie’s Cafe and Taqueria South market street. Also, a convenient location to find, right off Highway 273. Easy to see the sign on the road that said, Sweetie’s upon entrance into Sweetie’s Cafe and Taqueria, I noticed a great smelling taco truck sitting outside of the cafe, along with a smoker full of tri-tip billowing with yummy flavor! I walked into the restaurant and was immediately greeted by a friendly smile, a handshake and welcome. I introduced Myself and asked if I might be able to speak with the owner(s). That is when I met Mr. and Mrs. Roque Carbajal and Tiferet Carbajal, more friendly and warm smiles to greet me! As we all sat down at a table to talk, I couldn’t help but feel the welcoming, and comfortable atmosphere in the restaurant, it had a “homelike” feel to it.
Why did you start this business I asked?
“Needed an outlet for my taco addiction.” Mr. Carbajal giggled! Of course, I had to chuckle with them a bit about that!
What makes your business different? Did you have any special Training? “No,” just lots of experience and amazing recipes Roque replied, ” Nobody likes a mean burrito, but everyone like a happy taco! haha, We make smiles happen one taco at a time, and we are authentically delicious!”

“To help folks conquer their hunger with yummy goodness! Sweetie’s Cafe & Catering focuses on quality of food, customer service and cleanliness of their restaurant. “You can’t say Sweetie’s without a smile!”
“Life, just learning as they went along in life” such a simple, yet Complete answer I thought, humbling even.
What would you say as of to date, your best selling, product, service, food, drink and why?
“Tacos Haha! Mostly the Tacos!”
Friendly staff and gluten free choices. Love that they have tortilla and bean options on the breakfast menu as well! Sweetie’s Cafe and Taqueria, Is a Great chance to Come and sit down, relax, and enjoy some Awesomely authentic Food! “Our passion for cooking and love for food turned into a business of sharing what we do best.
