“Kept coming back. Amazing Liquados”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

This was the cafe nearest to the hotel where our tour stayed and everyone who visited the cafe returned. The coffee pleased our most picky connoisseur and I really enjoyed the fresh fruit liquados (smoothie or milkshake, depending on whether you choose to add milk or water). Definitely not the cheapest place in town, especially if you plan to eat there, but a great atmosphere and friendly staff.

“Good food, extremely slow service”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

We went at midday, we were asked what we wanted about 20 minutes into our arrival, and the food didn't come for a bout 30 min afterwards. The service is terrible, I don't mean by this that they're lazy, but the organization is the worst. The food is quite nice, but it's just not worth the wait.

“Funky, fun and tasty”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We frequented the Garcia Vigil as well as the Alcala locations, preferring the former (original spot). The graphic design is really fun and worth a look, at the very least, and the loft provides a cool place to hang out if the tables by the window are taken. Good cookies, and $3 peso chocolate bits in the shape of the cafe's logo were a fun little souvenir. They also sell t-shirts with some of the very inventive designs on them. Friendly young staff and just an all-around nice vibe.

“Ol' favourite”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

With so many nice little cafes in Oaxaca, this is the one I kept on coming back to. The coffee is nice and the sandwiches are just super. Nice friendly staff too! Give it a try!

Love the coffee here, local and freshly brewed plus a nice atmosphere. Good place to buy coffee to take home.
