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.

Made of metal? Check. Nothing else... even the Beer Museum is tiny and free of any beer. There is a guide service there that can arrange for other things to do though.
