“Funky, fun and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

We frequented the Garcia Vigil as well as the Alcala locations, preferring the former (original spot). The graphic design is really fun and worth a look, at the very least, and the loft provides a cool place to hang out if the tables by the window are taken. Good cookies, and $3 peso chocolate bits in the shape of the cafe's logo were a fun little souvenir. They also sell t-shirts with some of the very inventive designs on them. Friendly young staff and just an all-around nice vibe.

“Ol' favourite”

With so many nice little cafes in Oaxaca, this is the one I kept on coming back to. The coffee is nice and the sandwiches are just super. Nice friendly staff too! Give it a try!

“Great coffee! Great sandwiches!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Oh, yes, and don't forget to try the cabezacongelado (frozen head). It's a fresh fruit drink that will give you a headache if you try to drink it too fast. They are yummy! The sandwiches are made on good fresh bread and filling enough to share.

“Great food and atmosohere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Loved this place, proper frothy latte coffee, freshly made bagels and huge fruit, yoghurt & granola bowls. Great for fresh fruit smoothies too. There are two places in the town and both are excellent and really nice places to just chill.
