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!

We've been twice in the first few days. The fresh guacamole is a must, Muro Tacos had the taco flavor I've been seeking, Muro salad is layered beautifully with fresh fruit. And the salsa... I need it in my life forever. The gracious staff makes you feel like you're in their home. You'll love it.

Mexican with a little flair. I think niece and will find it good. Enjoyed my fajitas beef and green peppers. Never a fan of refried beans. My friends were not bowled over by steak tacos and bbq chicken. The huevos rancheros looked and apparently was great.

We went in for breakfast after reading the good reviews here and we weren't disappointed!! Worth the 15 min. walk from our hotel. The menu was great, with good variety and the service is the best! Will be returning tomorrow for lunch! They don't serve dinner, they close at 4pm.

Cafe MuRo is my happy place in SMA! Perfect spot, awesome service you feel so comfortable, they are super gentle people. The food is spectacular, portions very well served, delicious taste. The place is so cossy, beautiful space with nice music. I can't wait to go to MuRo again!!!!

Muro is one of our favorite restaurants in SMA. The food is delicious, the portion sizes are very generous and the prices are very reasonable. The owner, Gerardo, is very welcoming and all of the staff is friendly and attentive. The quality of food and service is always reliable. I have nothing but positive feedback for this restaurant.

This is in the top two or three of my favorite San Miguel restaurants. It is charming. Great attention has been given to creating a warm, even embracing ambience. The two owners ( the first two letters of their names spell MURO) make you feel genuinely welcome. This carries over to the entire staff. You will be welcomed by most... More

We first had breakfast here last year while visiting San Miguel during Dia de los Muertos week. The food was so good that when we recently returned to San Miguel this past week it was on our must list for a return visit. This visit did not disappoint! The food was again very tasty and offered some interesting regional culinary... More
