The place, the environment and the flavors are excellent, but could be a perfect place if the service change, I believe than the waiters need some trainee, they are not use to have a 5 start service

If you visit Orizaba you will not miss this iron palace, the entrance is for free and you can take a good coffee over there. Gustave Eiffel did a great job

We went for a beer and some music at one of the coffeeshops. There were a lot of people just hanging out, having fun. Cool, relaxed place that's definitely worth seeing.
