This is my favorite coffee shop in Oaxaca! The espresso has a wonderful bold flavor and the house blend is amazing. I always buy at least 2 pounds every time I visit Oaxaca!

Just come and taste their coffee, I promise you will not regret it. Their natural smoothies and sandwiches are also really good. You would take this over a Starbucks every day!

The best place for a coffee in Oaxaca! Lovely light, airy courtyard setting. Very relaxed. And, to cap it all, superb coffee. It's possible to buy packs of coffee there too. Went there a number of times during a one week stay in Oaxaca.

Only had the coffee, but I would go there anytime I wanted a really super coffee, the location on the Alcala with the outdoor courtyard is lovely. Little tables and people quietly looking at their computers while the birds are chirping.

Such a quaint little courtyard to enjoy your cappuccino. Great music and atmosphere. Gives Starbucks a run for its money.
