You don't find veggie burgers much in Mexico. This place has them and they are delicious!! The server asked if I wanted extra grilled veggies and of course I said of course. They'll add on mushrooms and pineapple- a tasty twist. The place overall is charming and affordable and the service was very friendly.

The restaurant's terrace is on a bridge overlooking the street and is a very pretty and picturesque place to go. This is really it's main drawing power though. The food there is pretty average. Not bad but nothing special. I'd recommend going for a drink just to enjoy the location, but there are probably better places to eat.

We had an early dinner, so we got the only free spot on the bridge. Awesome view, especially as it was graduation day. The waitress forgot one meal at first, but considering all the people outside and the people waiting in line in front, they were quite fast. The food itself was very good, too, and considering the nice view,... More

Seeing where this cafe is located, on a bridge over a pedestrian alleyway (allowing people to sit on the bridge and watch the people walking below), I knew I wanted to stop there. We only had coffee and hot chocolate, but both were very good.

Really nice location, grab a table on the bridge and you a have wonderful view perfect for people watching while having lunch. Very tasty food, prepared well and a nice atmosphere. The service was excellent and attentive. Friendly and professional staff. Price is right.

The service can be a little spotty, but the food is always good. Try to get a spot on the bridge for a picturesque view of the city.

If you are going to Guanajuato, you must visit this restaurant. The staff is really cool and the location is perfect. The menu is just amazing, we loved it. We ate there two times in two days.

Loved the location on a little bridge. Great atmosphere and good drinks. We didn't eat here, but the food others were eating looked fantastic!
