Absolutely everything about this place is incredible from the historic building to the food to the service. We were truly impressed. The food is imaginative as it is delicious. They also have a nice variety of interesting cocktails. We plan on coming back for breakfast.

Nice and comfortable place to spend a sunday morning with good food and good service. If hoy has Lunch there is a terrace bar in the third floor. If you want lunch instead the restaurant is on the second floor. Highly recomended.

During a break from work in Puebla, I headed to the Zocalo for some sightseeing and found this gem of a restaurant. I walked in to Nelhua with some expectations as it looked very nice from the outside and noticed the 4.5 rating in Google....More

My meal was so good and the service was gracious. Delicious coffee! The fruit plate is served on top of a very tasty honey flavored syrup. The juice of the day was also very refreshing.
