Excellent, tasty Mexican food of many types, including authentic Chiapaneca food. This restaurant is run by Zapatistas and there are several tiendas around the eating area selling products from Zapatista villages. Free WiFi, very good music (both live and recorded,) nice ambiance. The NY Times says it has a fixed price meal for $30 --- WRONG!! You can eat well for $ 10 and nearly as well for $ 7.00 USD.

This place is amazing and one of the few we found where we could have traditional dishes from the region. The food is real good and portions are more than enough. We ate here twice and had breakfast once and everything we tried was delicious. Besides food, all servers are friendly and accommodating. Prices are amazing, too. You CANT miss... More

The place is quite interesting and they have several mentions to the zapatista movement. The coffee is excellent and the interior patio is a great place to relax and read a book.

If you are passing by San Cristobal de las Casas, you should definitely eat once in this place. Food: 100% natural and organic Atmosphere: 10/10 very friendly and relaxed. Value: 5/5 very high value. I would personally recommend this restaurant to anyone coming to this marvellous town. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.

This place is a cooperative of the zapatistas, and has local live music most nights. We ended up going back twice more we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and nice food so much. Almost everything we had was nice, pizzas, soups, all of it. I was a big fan of their chocolate milkshakes...

Nice place with a patio where you can sit for a coffee or a dinner. We enjoyed good local music and good food (good typical sopas with fresh local veg and a tasty pizza). Environment is special as it is in all this magic city...not to be missed!

here, at the zapatista's cooperative, we had our best coffee since starting our travel through Mexico. Unfortunately, they hadn't any more left for sale (next harvest in 1-2 months) so the waiter recommended bying coffee at Yik Cafe, which we did. The breakfast was very good too. Nice atmosphere (music, surrounding), good service.

A good place for a casual dinner. Very interesting to learn about the Zapatista movement, through posters, information, and the shop. The night we were there there was a really good band which was an added bonus. Pizza and desert were very tasty, service a little slow (but pleasant) - we weren't in a hurry so we didn't care.

Based on those we visited, this Zapatista-supporting cafe may be the best in San Cristobal. The inner atrium layout is inviting and comfortable--whether for a meal, or to set up camp with your laptop and work. The "Mexican" food is notably good (though a bit slow). The shops adjoining the atrium are worth a walk-through, selling high quality goods and... More
