Muro is open 6 days a week from 9 AM until 4 PM. It is not dinner but excellent for breakfast and lunch. The food is great. The place is cozy and comfortable. The service is excellent. Don't miss this little treasure.

Owner/chef Gerardo's hospitality is unmatched. Muro is our favorite Sunday breakfast destination for their wonderful American and Mexican fare, delicious home-baked rolls, fresh juices, and an inviting artistic setting. This is a place for relaxed eating, meeting friends, or just taking a break from the hustle and bustle of Centro's crowded streets. P.S.-The service is the best I know of... More

It seems they are victims of their success because they have no attention whatsoever for customers. We called to book a table for breakfast and they said they took no reservation and discouraged us to go arguing they were full. They have this rude attitude like they were giving us a favor for wanting to go there. So we went... More

Based on two meals at MuRo, I leave you with this: 1. Knockout lemon pie. 2. Eggs Benedict, wonderful. Great service, nice folks, conveniently located a short walk from El Jardín. My wife and I will be returning on our next visit to San Miguel.

I enjoyed the atmosphere here although I thought it was a bit warm when the breeze stopped. The food was very good with enormous portions. It was too much food for me. There were locals and tourists here. You could see some were regulars, which speaks for the quality of food. I would recommend.

As you do when you're in SMdA, you walk a lot! When you're hungry or thirsty you look for a spot to stop. That's how I stumbled into Muro. Next door, which is open to the restaurant, they were putting on an art show by local artists, mostly ex-pats and many were coming to see the exhibit. I could see... More

This restaurant is one of my new favorites. I love the weather forecast and aphorisms written on the blackboard in Spanish and English. The hot cakes are fabulous

Description
MuRo Named after the two surnames of one of the two guys who own it, Cafe MuRo has been a Loreto Street stayed since May 2010, known for the quality of food and friendship of the staff- Cafe MuRo is a prestigious establishment well known for its cozy and homey atmosphere and popularity with locales and foreigners. Many regulars bring out-of-town visitors who want to get a "feel" of Mexican flavors in a not pretentious place. Some incongruous given its Loreto Street setting, the wood floors, orange walls, hanging ferns and intimate size give Cafe MuRo a warm, simple and very traditional San Miguel feeling. Unless you are heading to Handcrafts Market (Mercado de las Artesanias), you might miss this little and lovely restaurante. Cafe MuRo is much more a pleasant than the location might suggest. Not much to look at from the street, until you spy the delicacies within. The menu consists of simple, well-cooked, fresh and traditional Mexican food. Wonderful home-bread and soups, salad, good-sized portions, and fair prices make it a great place for everybody. Staff is friendly and helpful. When you come to MuRo, you are guaranteed a good meal and friendly service everybody time. Highlights include breakfast all day, a salad to die for and strong Mexican cofee that will knock you out. We assure you that once you are sitting in Cafe MuRo enjoying its food and service, you might want to stay longer that you originally tought! See you soon!MuR MuRoEl Cafe MuRo que le debe su nombre a la combinacion de los dos apellidos de uno de sus duenos abrio sus puertas en Mayo de 2010 en la Calle de Loreto. A partir de entonces es conocido por la calidad de su comida, la calidez de su personal y su atmosfera casera. El Cafe MuRo es un lugar popular entre la gente local y extranjera. Es comun que muchos de sus clientes traigan a sus amigos que visitan San Miguel de Allende por primera vez a que "sientan" la clasica calidez mexicana en un establecimiento acogedor sin falsas pretensiones. Dada su localizacion, resulta un tanto extrano encontrar en esta parte de la ciudad un sitio intimo, con pisos de madera, paredes pintadas de color naranja y helechos colgantes que le dan al Cafe MuRo una atmosfera de lo que significa el San Miguel de Allende de antano. Por eso, a menos que se dirigian al Mercado de la Artesanias por la calle de Loreto,y dado que desde la calle no es muy evidente, les recomendamos caminar despacio para descubrir las delicias que se sirven en el interior del MuRo. El menu consiste de comida mexicana tradicional, simple y fresca, la cual se sirve en porciones generosas, a precios justos y con un servicio amigable, lo cual hace del Cafe MuRo un gran lugar de reunion para todo tipo de gente. Es de destacar que se sirve desayuno todo el dia con un rico cafe que levanta al mas dormido. Les aseguramos que una vez que se sienten a la mesa del Cafe MuRo a disfrutar de su comida y servicio decidiran quedarse un poco mas de tiempo de lo que habian pensado en un principio. Nos vemos pronto!
