Great place for breakfast but...

Great place for breakfast but... No Wifi, and it is a little bit crowed in the morning. Coffee is delicious and very good for groups.

Don't eat at the modernized La Parroquia. You definitely need to eat at the classic one and ask for coffee. It's absolutely amazing, and the milk boy (waiter who carries a milk pitcher) will do this waterfall that is very photo worthy

If you never been to Veracruz, this is a most stop, especially in the evening to rest and catch up. The serving of a cup of coffee is quite a show. The waiter places a cup in front of you and pours the delicious liquid from about 2 feet up and away!

Good food, waiters spoke some English. Prices are competitive when compared to similar establishments. It is well lit and looks very clean.

Stopped here after a musical concert during Carnaval, just got in the door before the queue system started (which is very quick anyway). We had some basic sandwiches and I had a chocolate malt milkshake with my girlfriend having an iced coffee drink. The food was simple but very very tasty and I had to restrain myself from ordering another... More

Busy, kitchy, delicious coffee and good food at good prices. The waiters are talented, dancing between tables of customers, waiting customers, other waiters and busboys, and the occasional muscians that perform. Don't miss this!

They specialize in coffee, as you can probably tell by their name, but have a great variety of breakfast foods, as well. We enjoyed their eggs, though they didn't ask how we wanted them cooked, and they came sunny side up. I'm sure you could ask for them a different way, but who knows how that would turn out. The...

This restaurant is listed in all of the guides as a must do in veracruz,! wondered who they paid to write that, in fact the food is totally not impressive, very bland and without any flair, in fact there are many nearby restaurants that serve way better food at half the price, service is impersonal with a hint of arrogance...

It should be a "tradition" that when one is in Veracruz one should have at least one breakfast at the Gran Café La Parroquia. There exists in the establishment a tradition that is unique to this place regarding the coffee and serving thereof, but it must be experienced and not explained. Go there, have a great breakfast, and enjoy the... More
