Really tasty food. We sat upstairs on the stools where it was nice to watch what was going on below. Gets a bit hot upstairs because it's right above the kitchen but that would be the only complaint in an otherwise positive experience.

Awesome European-style pastries! I'd recommend the croissant in the morning with a nice cappuccino!! At night you can try one of the several delicious cakes they have!

We weren't terribly impressed. It's busy and packed all the time, but in DF it would just be average. Prices however are above average!

Got some tarts/small cakes here to takeaway. Really interesting desert selections and all were very tasty. A good place to meet someone for a coffee/cake to while away an hour or two.

The best coffee we found in San Cristobal, plus the most delicious array of gorgeous looking cakes - too much choice! Only a small seating area, so maybe do takeaway instead.
