This place was one of our favorite finds in Guadalajara. Mostly because both me and my boyfriend love Chais! This place has Chais with vanilla, apple and chocolate flavors, only to name some of all the drinks they have. The food is also really good. I had one of their sandwiches, and was not disappointed!

This review is for the location at 200 Juarez in the Centro Historico (Chai Centro). We live in San Francisco, California, and this café could easily be in one of the nicer parts of our city.

A huge menu for a great little funky place in the heart of Centro Guadalajara. We had the sandwiches and breakfast Huevos Rancheros plus fresh juice and coffee was great too. Nice comfy spot and couple of the staff spoke english when we needed a hand with the menu.

I've gone here several times and I love their french fries and smoothies. Great place to just sit and chat with friends. Also has a good variety of food for dinner or lunch.

A promising nice coffee shop on Juarez and Maestranza -other 6 locations I was told. Huge menú. Oversweetened beverages, overspiced food. No wonder kitchen is poor with some 200 dishes offered. Bar, nothig to be notied, good refuge from the rain or for a quiet Reading session.
