About Us

Frida Room is a family-owned Mexican & American Brunch Spot based in Pilsen, Chicago. Inspired by his family's everyday traditional Mexican cooking, Angel Diaz decided to open Frida Room in 2015, with one simple goal in mind: creating a place where he could feel at home and taste delicious and genuine Mexican food, just like his grandma, Chepis used to prepare it.

As traditions pass on from one generation to the next, cultures combine and blend in perfectly, and so does food! Initially, Frida Room featured a collection of Angel's family's favorite traditional Mexican recipes. But, as time went by, he started integrating local American flavors and ingredients to the Frida Room menu, turning it into a delicious combination of authentic Mexican food and modern American food. 

Every morning, you can find Angel having breakfast in his favorite spot, which he now runs together with his daughter Monica as a family business.
