Breakfast comes with coffee or tea, fruit, two entree options and beans. Filling, tasty and straight forward. Not a gourmet restaurant but it doesn't pretend to be one.

We had a nice breakfast at this restaurant about 50 feet from our apartment in the Plaza Mexiamora area. The decorations are great and the service and food good. Highly recommended.

I had breakfast here often on my last visit to Guanajuato to study Spanish as I stayed in one of their buildings. Coffee was from Chiapas and excellent. The package breakfast was a bargain. Warm inviting fairly spacious place. Friendly service.
