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

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

A really tasty start to the day. It was our first day here so it took a while to find, but came recommended by the person we were staying with. It didn't disappoint. We had Huevos Rancheros and Huevos Aztecas (excuse my spelling if I got them wrong) and they were simple but delicious. The Mango Agua Fresca and Choc/banana... More

After crossing under their bridge for for 3 weeks I finally decided to give Cafe Santo a try for lunch. The service was good, but the quality of that days special was average at best when compared to many other establishments in the city. What made this cafe unique though was that you can dine on the patio/ bridge that... More
