This restaurant is no longer called Cafe Bageltín.
I hope I got the new spelling correct. I am a resident of the town. This used to be called Cafe Bageltín, but a couple of weeks ago the owners changed the name. Still the same owners.
Now that that is out of the way, I can review it!
Guanajuato, is not known as a city with good restaurants, but that seems to be changing. La Santuronna is one of the reasons. I really like the food here. I used to come for just drinks with friends, in the evenings, but had not really tried their food, which used to be quite simple.
Now that has changed. I have now eaten at La Santurrana (Bagel Cafetín) perhaps 10 times, and each time the food is quite good. The last two times I had the 7.0-oz burger with sweet peppers and mushrooms and bacon, and it was VERY good, and I very much recommend it. That was two weeks ago when it was still named Cafe Bageltín. My last time was for lunch (three days ago), and they had all-new menus and a new name - La Santurrona. I had an arrachera burger (skirt steak strips, marinated in Mexican seasonings), and my g.f. had the chicken fajitas. Both were very delicious, and I recommend them both. We had lemonades (freshly squeezed), which were plenty good enough that we ordered seconds.
The outdoor setting is majorly delightful, one of the best locations in town for people watching. It is in the corner of a small plaza, where the pedestrian-only street makes a turn, and with a couple of statues by some tree-shaded benches. It is all cobblestone, and a narrow picturesque alleyway behind leads up a hill. It is one of the best places to sit and watch the world go by - in a city of many such places. The mixed drink selection is one of the better ones in town.
The menu is fairly large, including burgers, vegetarian, Mexican, seafood, chicken dishes (that I can remember). The dishes on the menu are all given the names of women - which is new, so with the new menu I am not sure which dish is which, not yet, anyway. The seafood is quite good and fresh, despite the city's distance from the coasts.
The food came promptly and the wait staff is attentive and friendly, but also quite unobtrusive.
All in all, one of my favorite eating spots in town. And becoming more so.
