interesting location on a bridge with tons of local atmosphere. Fairly traditional menu with excellent food. Good service.

Really nice location (particularly loved the tables on the bridge), tasty food, nice atmosphere. Service was OK (my first waiter was very friendly and professional, the second waitress clearly and a bad day).

A very good lunch spot. We ate inside as smoking is allowed outside. The sandwiches were very tasty and certainly not run of the mill. I wouldn't go out of my way to eat at this cafe, but if you are in the area and want a snack or meal, it is a good choice.

Notable for its few tables on a bridge over the street, great of people watching, but interior is just as good! Good menu, real sable prices, attentive staff with strong wifi. Quite like it here

We didn't eat in the main center by Juarez theatre and found this cute joint. The prices were much better and the young staff were pleasant.

We ate there last week. Our niece lives nearby and took us there for lunch. The food was quite good but sitting out on the bridge was the real treat. Very unique setting.

This little gem on the bridge overlooking one of the busy pedestrian streets in this charming city. Sitting and sipping a hot chocolate watching the passers by is a great way to spend the afternoon. Inside, is a busy and eclectic cafe, with a good choice of snacks, full meals, or desserts. The staff is friendly and efficient. Definitely worth... More

Santo Cafe is a quaint coffee house with snacks. A nice place to take a break, but nothing special in the way of food or coffee. Their location, with very limited seating on the "bridge", is what makes them special. Seating is crowded and uncomfortable.

A cute little cafe offering good breakfasts and food. We had "huevos divorciados", divorced eggs, which have red chillies on one, green on the other. Really great! Coffee was a little mediocre, but we haven't found much decent coffee in Mexico (we're coffee snobs). The best is sitting on the bridge, watching the people walk by underneath, and soaking up...
