When you mix strong family values, Puerto Rican heritage, exceptional service and authentic food, you get the Fiesta Café in Holyoke, one of the newest restaurants in the Paper City.
Walking into the Fiesta Café on 305 Main St., you’re transported to sunny Puerto Rico. Lively music fills the air along with smells of fresh Puerto Rican coffee and delightful sandwiches from the grill.
Owned by brothers and Holyoke natives Gilberto and Juan Montano, Fiesta Café is a dream come true. Their goal was to open a family-run and family-oriented business.
“We wanted to make Fiesta Café a family business,” Juan Montano says. “My mom is cooking, my brother is serving (and) our family is bringing other families together.”
“My whole family is from Holyoke, and, for me to be able to give jobs to nieces and nephews is big,” Gilberto Montano added. “To be able to mentor them and give them a hands-on opportunity as to how a business works is so important. Our café is keeping our culture alive.”
The Fiesta Café is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., and weekends from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Their menu includes fresh breakfast and lunch, and they are now open for dinner and just obtained their liquor license.
Repeat customer Millie Disla says the personal service she receives is outstanding. “I always ask for cinnamon in my coffee, and they always do that for me,” she said. “Everything is fresh and tasty.
