Got a few bags of freshly roasted and ground coffee here to brew our own daily coffee and it was delicious!

Cool coffee shop on the primarily pedestrian Alcalá. Once you buy 10 drinks the 11th is free. It's good enough that I got to 4 in one week.

Excellent latte and service. Cakes and granola, though I did not have. These people have it down to a science. Very impressed.

Right next to the best bookstore, and across from the second best one. You eat in a lovely little covered patio that is valued by the locals for its internet access (and the fact that it's one of the few spots like this in Oaxaca with outlets for cords).

With a new airy local on Calzada Porfirio Díaz this coffee house is a great place to have your breakfast coffee, a nice lunch (roastbeef sandwiches or beagles, yum!) or an afternoon coffee with friends. Also try the "Limonada Texana" for a refreshing experience.

Nice little coffee shop with good coffee and decent hot chocolate. The hot chocolate wasn't very hot. They have free wifi which is a plus.

We tried both locations of this place and were not disappointed. This is the best coffee we had in Oaxaca during the 5 days we were there.

If you are a coffee snob then go here, they know how to cook coffee to perfection. Mexico offers great beans but we found some places cant cook it, so this was our saviour. Simple brunch menu is good, but who needs brunch when there is street food in your face in oaxaca

Great coffee, really friendly service and lovely atmosphere in a great area of Oaxaca. Also loved the yogurt based mango smoothie with no sugar! This is a REAL coffee shop! The best in town.
