I'm picky about my crepes, and I must say that Café Bossa Nova didn't disappoint. I got the mushroom crepe with limonade for a drink, and my daughter ordered a Nutella crepe. Delicious! The portions were HUGE and the price was affordable. It has my vote for the best limonade in Guanajuato.

One would expect Brazilian food by the name. Nope. Mostly a crepe and pannini place. Both the savory and the sweet crepes are very good. Best part is the people watching, It is located in San Fernando Plaza, which became my favorite plaza in Guanajuato during my recent one month stay studying Spanish. Mostly outdoor seating. Service is good and... More

For what seemed to be an assuming little café bossanova offers some of the best cappuccinos and frappe in Guanajuato. Located in the back of plaza de San Fernando, it is open to the whole square and tons of people watching. I have yet to try the crepes but was assured by friends that accompanied months they were equally fantastic.... More

We ate here with kids and friends and very much enjoyed the Tree filled plaza setting. Nice salad and crepes. Had paella but was so so.

The activity in the plaza, with music and some folks dancing, as well as local dogs and children playing, helped compensate for so-so food and so-so service. We had better dining experiences at the other restaurants in Plaza San Fernando.

Fabulous location at the back of the San Fernando Plaza and was quite a hangout in the past. Though never stylish or perfectly hygienic, it has now become a non-favorite with most locals due to grimy salsa containers, slow and poor service, lack of decent coffee, same ordinary menu, and crabby owners. Too bad! because it was a nice place... More

I especially like the Plaza San Fernando, the laid-back little plaza where this small cafe is located, not far from the busy Plaza de la Paz and La Basilica. We tried the green salad with fresh fruit and walnuts nuts (unusual, but good) a strawberry smoothie (excellent), a vanilla milkshake (tasty, but too thin) and a fresh strawberry crepe with... More
