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!

Great atmosphere and great food. Home baked rolls, best chorizo in town, and a delightful breakfast menu at very reasonable prices. Gerardo is the friendliest host in town.

We are regular visitors of Muro because we can't find any place as good to replace it. Off the beaten path but close to the market, library, and not far from the "jardin". The owners are so friendly, the food is delicious, and prices are very reasonable. Our favorite after trying almost every breakfast & lunch place in town.

I live in SMA. I am often frustrated by high prices, poor quality food, and definitely not enough of it. THIS restaurant is the exception to the rule. I don't go to a restaurant to see pretty designs in a plate. I go for FOOD........GOOD FOOD. I ordered a custom omelette and I have just brought 1/3 of it home... More

Consistently among San Miguel's top rated restaurants, Muro is regularly praised for the warmth of its staff. We ended up visiting the restaurant twice for lunch and each time the service was impeccable, delicious and memorable. The lunchtime menu offers burritos, tortilla soups, salads, and seasonal specials such as chiles en nogada, poblano chillies stuffed with ground meat and served... More

MuRo offers consistently good food and great service in a really pleasant atmosphere. You are always treated as a treasured guest. We've eaten there for many years and never been disappointed.
