walking down the breathtaking street of Guadalajara I bumped into this gorgeous quant Café Chai! It reminds me of home, home to me is Pasadena California. I loved everything about Chai! The servers were so friendly and made me feel so special. I would visit at least twice a day the 4 short days I had to visit. I was... More

Right in El Centro. I'm here right now. Photos show this location. A great piña smoothie and (fried)shrimp salad. Quick as long as you ask them to serve you.

Great food, great service, great location. Chai is a relatively small cafe a block from the main cathedral. The menu has a long list of options. It seems particularly popular for breakfast. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals. If you're in the area, this is a great option.

They have an extensive menu (Mexi/International) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The lunchtime salad bar was really good. We had breakfast there too - it was all good,... More

The Chai Restaurant chain offers a nice variety of sandwiches, smoothies, teas, coffee, salads, desserts,cocktails,beers and other light food items. They have several locations throughout the city. Their service is good and their prices are budget. Enjoy a nice breakfast, lunch or snack at chai. Love their daily happy hour from 3pm til 7pm all cocktails 2x1

Chai is more modern than many restauants on the historic center of town but the food was a bit disappointing. My husbands pasta was dry, my chicken wrap was just ok, neither had a lot of flavor. Service was good but restaurant was quite noisy plus there was a lot of street noise.

The food is very good and the juices are natural and well done. I spent like 6 hours in there and the waitress was always nice to us.
