A pregnant lady who wanted breakfast and a very hungry husband who wanted lunch. There was a good combo. We were not looking for authentic Mexican food but rather something very close to American food and this sufficed our needs at the time. The restaurant seemed up to date and was not dirty.

Sanborn's restaurants in main Mexican cities are like Mc Donald's elsewhere in the world: you can find one at each corner. But Puebla is different! Although it is Mexico's 3rd largest city, there is JUST ONE Sanborn's in town: this one! All other Sanborn's (not many anyway) can only be found in the malls. So, since this is the only... More

I really enjoyed our waitress! She was great! Food was good and fresh but nothing out of the ordinary. Service was the high point - all else was good but unexciting ..

Nothing special here. Wasn't bad, wasn't good. Not sure why we there. Suppose to have a good breakfast but we only had lunch. Service was good and a decent place all and all. I'd go there again if it was convenient!

The Sanborn's restaurants owner is no less than the richest man in the world according to the Forbes list, Mr. Carlos Slim. He has a taste for old buildings which he has helped to restore and bring back to their ancient architectural value. He did it in Mexico City with the Casa de los Azulejos and has done the same...

This is a beautiful building worth taking a closer look at. Stop for a refreshment, use their lovely, clean bathroom, and catch your breath in the heart of downtown Puebla.

French toast is a foreign concept in Mexico and Sanbourn's has no idea what it is. The rest of my breakfast was very good. The coffee was nice and the bacon was well cooked the way I like it. It is a bit pricey for what you get but if you are longing for a taste of home I recommend... More

I have eaten at several of the Sanborn's in Mexico. It is a chain and as is so often with chains, they are mediocre. The food is usually bland, although nicely presented and the waitstaff is the normal Mexican grab them when you can type. Although their Mexican dresses are cute and interesting. The restaurants I have been to are... More

Half the experience is walking through the store on the way to the restaurant. Some locations, like El Triangulo, have covenient parking.

Pienso que este lugar solo es para comer cuando tienes poco tiempo y quieres hacer varias cosas en un mismo lugar como ir a la farmacia, o sacar dinero de un cajero interno, un regalo.
