Returning to Zihua after 20 years. Has the Glob restaurant been renamed? It was one of our favorite places to have breakfast and great coffee. Thanks

Well it has moved, and as of July was in the same location. Which is: Between Sam's club and Bodega on the Sam's side of the road.

Were you referring to the Glob’s Restaurant which was situated on the corner of Catalina Gonzalez & Benito Juarez --- across from the Mercado and close to the Taxi stand?

That was a favorite of ours too because the A/C was so cold one could hang beef in it and their lemonade drink was really refreshing.

Farmacias del Ahorro now occupies that location now.

Never ate at the Glob - couldn't get past the unfortunate name, I guess. Reminds me of General Motors and their (aptly?) named "Nova".

Which also reminds me of Phil Edmondston's thumbnail sketch of GM's Vega: "Buy a Vega if you enjoy meeting people along the highway."
(Canadians will recall Phil as the founder of the Automobile Protection Association, and author of "Lemon-Aid" )

As an ex-Vega owner, I can attest to the accuracy of Phil's "recommendation".

Don't get me going, Mole. GM's Chevy engineers were looking at their newest model back in the 70's and trying to find a name. It was so ugly they kept saying "GEE" this is horrible and "OH" what a mess. They couldn't resist. Thus the GEO was unfortunately stillborn.

I believe they have another location beside/near Salinas y Roches in a second floor local. You need to look UP in order to spot their sign. Perhaps this is Calle Mango Rob is referencing.

Yes, it is. On the north side of the Mercado Municipal.
