Great food and drinks

Came here on recommendation from friends. Great spot to eat if you can get one of the tables on the famous bridge. Delicious Chilaquiles and the fruit and yoghurt smoothies are delicious with very reasonable pricing. Tried to come back on Sunday for breakfast but they were closed. Hours on the... read more

This place has no regard for good-coffee culture. They serve cappuccinos on glass cups instead of pottery cups - and they don't understand why this is wrong. Places like this should be avoided and should be forbidden to use "café" in their name.

I highly recommend you eat here - or at least walk up the ramp to have a drink at twilight to enjoy the view of the street below.

Great location and the place itself is really cozy and cute. If you get a place in the bridge is even better! the downside is that its always crowded (because its good). the food is also great and its not expensive. We had portobello hamburguers and were delicious!

The location is great and the food here is pretty good. They also make different kinds of refreshing juice drinks/aguas frescas. On a nice day, it's also pretty cool to sit in one of their outdoor tables on the bridge just above the street. If you can't snag an outdoor table, the much larger indoor dining room is pretty cute... More

Great food, great location, & many varieties of food! The service was a bit slow but they were busy so I can't blame the server too much. Cool that they have WiFi, though it's limited to 2 hours. Also, their posted hours are wrong.

And good food and service as a bonus :) We got lunch there one day - sandwiches, crepes, juices and cappuccino, and all was excellent. The servers were all friendly and fun, and very accommodating with special food requests for our kids. Sitting on that bridge watching people and enjoying the breeze under the shade of the umbrellas is just... More

After passing under the bridge every day while walking into town, and on the recommendation of friends, we finally decided to have breakfast here. We just automatically sat outside on the bridge and it wasn't until after we had ordered that my husband looked inside and saw the rest of the restaurant. Which he also liked. We had one order...

We had been walking under the bridge for weeks, but today we walked up the ramp and experienced the restaurant for lunch. We were encouraged to sit inside and leave the table of four places for others. Inside there is a lot of room. We had a nice table for two by the window. We had an excellent lunch. I... More
