MuRo Named after the two surnames of one of the two guys who own it, Cafe MuRo has been a Loreto Street stayed since May 2010, known for the quality of food and friendship of the staff- Cafe MuRo is a prestigious establishment well known for its cozy and homey atmosphere and popularity with locales and foreigners. Many regulars bring out-of-town visitors who want to get a "feel" of Mexican flavors in a not pretentious place. Some incongruous given its Loreto Street setting, the wood floors, orange walls, hanging ferns and intimate size give Cafe MuRo a warm, simple and very traditional San Miguel feeling. Unless you are heading to Handcrafts Market (Mercado de las Artesanias), you might miss this little and lovely restaurante. Cafe MuRo is much more a pleasant than the location might suggest. Not much to look at from the street, until you spy the delicacies within. The menu consists of simple, well-cooked, fresh and traditional Mexican food. Wonderful home-bread and soups, salad, good-sized portions, and fair prices make it a great place for everybody. Staff is friendly and helpful. When you come to MuRo, you are guaranteed a good meal and friendly service everybody time. Highlights include breakfast all day, a salad to die for and strong Mexican cofee that will knock you out. We assure you that once you are sitting in Cafe MuRo enjoying its food and service, you might want to stay longer that you originally tought! See you soon!MuR MuRoEl Cafe MuRo que le debe su nombre a la combinacion de los dos apellidos de uno de sus duenos abrio sus puertas en Mayo de 2010 en la Calle de Loreto. A partir de entonces es conocido por la calidad de su comida, la calidez de su personal y su atmosfera casera. El Cafe MuRo es un lugar popular entre la gente local y extranjera. Es comun que muchos de sus clientes traigan a sus amigos que visitan San Miguel de Allende por primera vez a que "sientan" la clasica calidez mexicana en un establecimiento acogedor sin falsas pretensiones. Dada su localizacion, resulta un tanto extrano encontrar en esta parte de la ciudad un sitio intimo, con pisos de madera, paredes pintadas de color naranja y helechos colgantes que le dan al Cafe MuRo una atmosfera de lo que significa el San Miguel de Allende de antano. Por eso, a menos que se dirigian al Mercado de la Artesanias por la calle de Loreto,y dado que desde la calle no es muy evidente, les recomendamos caminar despacio para descubrir las delicias que se sirven en el interior del MuRo. El menu consiste de comida mexicana tradicional, simple y fresca, la cual se sirve en porciones generosas, a precios justos y con un servicio amigable, lo cual hace del Cafe MuRo un gran lugar de reunion para todo tipo de gente. Es de destacar que se sirve desayuno todo el dia con un rico cafe que levanta al mas dormido. Les aseguramos que una vez que se sienten a la mesa del Cafe MuRo a disfrutar de su comida y servicio decidiran quedarse un poco mas de tiempo de lo que habian pensado en un principio. Nos vemos pronto!

Charm, good food, great service

This is a small place that is easy to miss, but worth a visit for a good meal in a space with lots of charm. They always have art showing on the walls, which adds to ambiance.

The daily special menu is great value, and enough for two to share at only 125 pesos! The best service we have had in town. The food is fabulous with great presentation. The owner always welcomes you when you visit. Only the cake is not recommended as it's very dry. But the key lime pie is super! We never leave... More

Muro was such a find! There are many wonderful places to eat in San Miguel de Allende, but for breakfast or lunch Muro stands out for several reasons. The food is delicious and authentic--not fussy, but lovingly and thoughtfully prepared and presented; the setting is lovely--comfortable, intimate, "cozy"; the owner and the entire staff solicitous, gracious, polite, and warm; the...
