This a AAA place to rest, drink coffee and enjoy free internet. Service is friendly and the colonial architecture is fantastic. The restaurant extends to both sides of an alley on two floors that are connected by very narrow stairways. A must when you visit Guanajuato

Great coffees and service. Lovely array of places you can sit in the cafe with a range of outside views. Prices are very reasonable and coffees large! Wifi was not as strong as hoped.

this is a wonderful little cafe with a wonderful assortment of pastries and great coffee. The location is very convenient as it is pretty close to the centre of town.

And rockin hot chocolate! Did not try any food there but the liquid sustenance was of highest quality. We sat and played cards and revved up for the day.

Great coffee and convenient wifi in a funky bohemian atmosphere. We learned a lot about coffee roasting one afternoon chatting with the owner, an ex-pat American french horn player. Every trip we make to Gto we bring back Cafe Tal's Veracruz-grown coffee beans as gifts for family and friends.

The staff are very nice but a little slow to serve and I'm sorry but I couldn't finish the coffee, way too bitter and burnt.

I was a tad disappointed as I had heard good things about this cafe, then I walked in and was like "is this it?". My green aloe tea was a bit weak and I found the cafe area very small and didn't enjoy the atmosphere as much as I had hoped. Nice service though.

The coffee here is fantastic, as is the ambiance in the little spot not too far from the Jardin de la Union. On a Sunday morning while the city slept, we had coffee and a fruit and a pastry here. Very peaceful. Highly recommend.

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
