Cute little restaurant, colourfully decorated and quiet for lunchtime. Ordered a salad and the waiter was happy to make it without meat for me. My boyfriend had a huge mug of chai latte, which was delicious. He ate a crepe filled with creamy vegetables, also very tasty. Really good quality and a fair price.

This is such a neat cafe and from the outside you'd be shocked to think it is rated second. Although the list lacked a decent drinks/ wine menu, the pork and peanut salad, we ate was beautiful. The baguette was nothing to write home about but we rate it highly for the price and the service well beyond others in... More

The place has good tripadvaisor and travel agencies recommendations. However, the place is ordinary, like any common household restaurant in Mexico. The decoration of the place is psychedelic. The service is slow and dishes are simple. My fiancee and I ordered pizza, "crêpes" and a frozen drink. My drink was tasteless. 3 trials after the drink was still tasteless. Finally... More

Ate here once. Went back, ate there again. Went back a third time. Note this isn't a formal restaurant, and its menu isn't of the appetiser/main/dessert sort. Also a limited bar selection. Menu is pizza, pasta, salads, crepes sweet and savoury, smoothies, that sort of thing. Everything we had was perfectly executed and exceeded expectations. V attentive service from the... More

Excellent food, we've tried the Cesar salad, the vegeterian queque and another salad and all was great. The coffe, chai and shakes are also very good.

In 4 weeks of roaming Mexiko as a country, that was the first time we finaly ate properly and made our bellies full. The meal was awesomely prepared and tastes as good as it looked!

This small restaurant is perfect for lunch. Among the five of us we tried the pizza, baguette, quesadilla, and a crepe. All of them were excellent and very reasonably priced ($4-5 for most items, less for the personal pizza). It's conveniently located just off the southern pedestrian zone and the staff are extremely friendly. Highly recommended!
