Love Sanborn's.....many, many memories

I have so many fond memories of Sanborn's in Mexico City from 30 years ago when I traveled there for business. And visiting Sanborn's across the street from my hotel, Lucerne, was a real trip down memory lane. The wait staff still wears the same outfits they did many years ago. The coffee is... read more

Meh, it's adjacent to iStay so I imagine that it's part of the iStay chain. The food is expensive, the service is meh and the quality is a double meh. There are no refills and each drink costs about 2 dollars. Of course, they don't tell you that when you order. When you have 2 children that drink soda and... More

One of mexico's chain restaurants (like denny's) but sometimes attached to a general goods store, don't particularly care to much about it but it's usually reliable, this time the service was bad,the food even worse. The coffee was not hot, when the food was served it didn't match the description on the menu, they used american processed cheese where it... More

Upon walking in, you can't miss the bookstore feeling and then when you walk around you notice it has EVERYTHING!. There is a pharmacy, a bakery, a restaurant, candy store, perfumes, jewelry, electronics, and did i mention the awesome bookstore? It is attached to the I-stay hotel, and stays open past midnight.

Sanborn's is a restaurant and a giant gift shop. We bought quite a few things there. It was right across the street from our hotel, so we ate there many times. The food was very good and a good value, so we kept going back. They have a good breakfast buffet. The only gripe I had was this. They have... More

Sanborn's has good food and not that far to walk with wife and 2 children with a stroller. Found that the food is similar to Sanborn's in other towns. And the restaurant is very clean with nice employees.

Always great! The service is awesome!!! We like it that you can get a great meal, and then entertain yourself looking around the store at the end or before.

Is good but if you are looking for something more Mexican is not the best place, service was good, food is like any other Sanborns. We were there for breakfast buffet, a little bit pricey if you consider what they offer, I recommend to go a la carte instead.

Visit to Sanborns stores in Mexico is always a nice experience. Order a beer and a piña colada, waitress brought 2 of each because of happy hour. Quesadillas were ok, always good flavor and service is ok, clean environment and you can spend a great time in the store that has a book section.
