Probably the only normal coffee I've been able to find in the States or Mexico. Taste of coffee was OK, not a bean I'll remember, and it wasn't strong enough. Soy milk was still on the sweet side. Coffee wasn't hot enough. If you're a...More

Actually I came back with 6 bags of coffee this trip to tide me over. This is my favorite coffee shop in the world, the cappuccino is to swoon over. Greg the owner is totally cool.

Since my last visit, this place has finally enforced Mexico's smokefree law which makes it MUCH more pleasant! Cute place, good coffee, decent service.

Definitely the best coffee in Guanajuato! Cute little place with two sections across narrow Calle Temezcuitate off Sangre de Cristo (look for the narrow colourful lane). It's indoors but has open windows affording views of passers by. If coffee matters to you, go there!

Excelente coffee! I always make a stop at Cafe Tal when visiting Guanajuato. Greg is an old friend, and his business is doing well. Make sure to get some beans to take home!

the owner, Greg, takes roasting coffee VERY VERY VERY seriously. the atmosphere is laid back if a little spartan, a good place to study or have a quiet conversation. Great coffee to go too.

I am not a gourmet coffee drinker, i just like good coffee. Cafe tal was as good as ClubCafe, Cafe de la paz. Not better. Served a cappuccino luke warm. Expected more. Lot of seating.
