These guys all speak English! I went here many times for breakfast as they understood English and the food was superb. Loved the books and the general layout of this place.

This is a combination bookstore and cafe. We had breakfast here mid-morning on a Saturday. It was absolutely excellent. The service was friendly and the food was excellent. It’s a great place to sit and enjoy the morning.

We’ll be back!

Try the vega burger made of Portobello at the rooftop terrace with a Corona Extra, and you will be amazed by the culinary surprise a bookshop can deliver... A very nice place to wind down.

Beautiful book store, cafe, and Restuarant.

They have books on politics and history. And I for real want to buy one of those clocks hanging behind the cashier

The first "cafebrería" (a combination of the words coffee shop and library in Spanish) opened in 1993 in Mexico City. Since the brand has grown significantly and today is represents one of the important cultural centers of Latin America, offering not only a quality selection of books (specializing in literature, arts and the humanities) but also music and movies. In addition they host events that include concerts, book readings and signings, and courses in literature.

This is the perfect setting in which to enjoy a good, slow cup of coffee.
