Located in the lake shore town of Michigan City, El Cajete is a family owned and operated casual Mexican restaurant.

The Bernal Family opened El Cajete in 2012 and we have been serving authentic Mexican food made with love ever since. Mama Juana and her two sons Guillermo and Alfredo keep the restaurant running with even more help from extended family. Originally from Atlixco, Mexico, Juana's authentic recipes have been the backbone of our success. We strive to serve our community with fresh, delicious Mexican food with a smile. 

If you're headed to the lake or would rather hang out at home call us for take out!
