“Chocolate and coffee!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Excellent coffee, maybe the best in México. But, don't forget to try the beso negro. Lovely smooth rich chocolate that will please any chocoholic.

“Terrific coffee, pastries mediocre”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Cafe Tal made the best cup of coffee I have ever had in Mexico. Freshly roasted. They could really do with some pastries to match the quality of coffee. We had a cinnamon bun and bagel that tasted like it came from Costco.
Oh, and the cat. Awesome!

“Excellent coffee. Friendly cat.”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

What can I say? I had cafes con leche here until I couldn't drink any more. Delicious.

On one of my visits I sat at a table by the window. The cat took advantage of that and spent probably an hour on my lap. No problem; I was able to signal for help - in the form of more coffee - without having to get up.

“Great coffee...funky ambiance”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Coffees are excellent. We made multi-daily stops here whenever possible. It's kind of a hole in the wall and not well appointed or maintained (nearly every light fixtures was broken), but, it's all about the coffee! We spotted Cafe Tal coffee at some local restaurants, so I suspect the real focus may be on roasting and wholesaling coffee to area restaurants. If you like good coffee you need to stop here.
