It is amazing for what surprise you are in when you enter this nondescript "Hole in the Wall". Arguably the best coffee in town, friendly service (absolutely fluent in English if that matters to you) and you can meet artistst, musicians, writers, gringos and non-gringos there...and even me.... The owner Greg, an accomplished classical French Horn player, personally selects his... More

Fun spot in one of the many alleys in Guanajuato. Great Coffee and Cappucino and Lattes. They also serve pastries and deserts that were all very good. Nice place to meet people and hang out. They also sell coffee either beans or ground and it is very good.

first time we went we sat for an hour and our coffee never came; we left. The near decrepit, quirky rooms on 2 levels and 2 sides of the lane have a certain character charm which I really like but the table service LOL.I went back again and ordered straight from the barista and had my mocha chino delivered to...

When I really want to relax and enjoy a great cup of coffee or cappucino this is usually where I imagine being.

The cafe latte was delicious and, sometimes (sadly, not always) served with beautiful, artistic presentation. The prices were a little higher than I would have liked. But good coffee is a very important priority, so we enjoyed stopping by several times while in Guanajuato. We were happy that we had a chance to meet Tal (the cat) while there.

I'd try the choco-cortado coffee (I'm not quite sure about the name of the beverage but was something like that) it was a perfect combination between a good dark Mexican chocolate and a good espresso. I really enjoy it if you like the real coffee you should try the Cafe Tal.

Here in Guanajuato studying Spanish. Coming from the SF Bay Area my expectations for coffee flavor are high but rarely met elsewhere. Café Tal roasts their own beans and the result is a rich, full flavor, non-bitter brew. Nice pastries--very chocolatey muffin, croissant, other pastries. True, there is limited seating area where you buy your coffee, but right across the... More

Paid Cafe Tal a visit after several Mexican friends recommended the place. I had the best hot chocolate drink ever. I will definitively be back!

I discovered this gem on my last visit as it is one of the few places in the historic centre to open for coffee/breakfast before 9 am. Excellent coffee. I had fruit salad with yogurt and a croissant both days and both were of the quality of a much more expensive place. The atmosphere in the original building is a... More

It was an okay place. Had a green mango tea and fruit plate both which were excellent. But the location was far from the center and not really comfortable. Very small sitting area. Tal the cat did make an appearance however. Was looking for baked goods, none to be had.
