Close to the popular handcraft market, this restaurant has a nice inner terrace plus some indoor seating where they offer vegan and non-vegan dishes. They have typical staff from the region (e.g. excellent tortillas de Teopisca) as well as some classics (Portobello veg Hamburger). Acceptable...More

Woke up hungover and found this beauty. They served scones with cream and jam and fruit and it was just perfect! A little bit of home away from home! Homemade quality food. Lovely staff. Lovely courtyard to sit out too

Good breakfast, good bread, not so good with the included coffee. Nice environment, music and service.

At first glance it’s a nice little place. However the coffee was burnt and the enchilladas were tasteless and made me and my friends sick. Definitely a no-go for me. Seems like this place has known better times.

This was the first place I went to when I arrived in San Cristóbal. The Café has cute interior design with a little bakery inside. The breakfast we had there was delicious plus good coffee! Staff was very polite. Definitely worth a visit!

Really nice place with good service, even though they were a bit slow due to lack of personnel. The coffee was good and the bakery stuff that they had was awesome! Would definitely recommend.
