I had lived here for a while before finally venturing into Carajillo Cafe. They have several posts around San Cris. The coffee is the best in town, and the coconut latte is delicious. Decor is great, staff is friendly, and they sell beautiful gifts and trinkets (scarves, textiles, etc.) that benefit local indigenous women's cooperatives. A must if you are visiting San Cris.

The coffee here was fantastic and the staff were very informative about the whole process and in explaining what they do but the food whilst tasty was expensive given the portion sizes.

Go now :) Seriously, this is a must, when you are in San Cristóbal. Lovely ambiente, super friendly stuff and delicious coffee & breakfast. There are many cafés in the town, but not many where you feel so welcome and get such great value as here.

Had a great coffee and the Elote cake dessert with helado is to die for! Great atmosphere and can sit and work on wifi for a long time.

I was extremely disappointed that when I ordered a "large" size coffee, it came in a large throw-away (takeaway) container even though I was staying in the cafe. I never take takeaway cups because I hate the waste. I really recommend to the cafe to stop this and serve the coffee in a glass cup or the largest mug size that is available. Or at least they can give a warning during the order so guests know what to expect. I think it's disappointing to drink from a takeaway cup in general, but even more so for people who hate to waste in the environment.. that was the only disappointment.

Also no air condition so on a warm day it is quite hot and stuffy, no air flow coming through.

I frequently visit San Cristobal de las Casas and I go to this place every day when I am there. I absolutely love their service and workers. Great food, great coffee. Try their Barista for a Day training!
