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. It is clean and friendly, with marble-topped tables and white walls. It is perfect for a drink or a salad, a lunch or even... More

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.

I often go the Chai Restaurant on Vallarta, there are a few other locations and I´ve probably tried them all, but Vallarta is my famorite because of the location, the traffic and the young people who both work there and frequent this particular location. I enjoy sitting outside on the balcony of this old mansion with the great architecture. Week... More

The food at the buffet in the Chai at Providencia was nothing remarkable. The cooked food was lukewarm, which made for a tasteless experience. The fruit and the made to order omelette were good, but the line for the omelette was very long taking up to 10 minutes for you to be able to order. The service was pretty good... More
