A local friend suggested we try a meal a Santo Cafe. Located above a cobblestone street in the outskirts of the city historic center, one sees four tables on a bridge leading into the restaurant. Inside you get the warm feeling of a neighborhood eatery. The staff is young and friendly. The food was well prepared and tasty. We were... More

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!

One of Our favorite lunch spots. Bit of a walk from the jardin but worth it. Exc enchiladas and fresh smoothies or limonadas. Exc service. Pleasant sitting out on the bridge. Students can fill the inside resulting in a lot of noise

Ordered the hot cakes, scrabbled eggs with bacon...delicious!!! It came with OJ and coffee too. Atmosphere is relaxing and art work is beautiful. You can either eat inside with an open window view or on the balcony entryway. The employees are always nice. I've visited the city before and eaten lunch twice there and that was excellent as well!

SC is a small place in an attractive setting, right on the bridge of the Campanero. It was hard to get a table for four, but was worth the wait. The pasta was more than acceptable, the portions big, prices attractive, the wait staff hard-working and the background reggae music reflected the laid-back atmosphere of the place. Unlike a previous... More
