“Honest food”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Being vegetarians we were recommended to eat at casa del pan. It is an atmospheric restaurant that uses only locally and fairly produced food and drink. I can recommend the food, it is nice to have so many healthy veggie options. The oyster mushroom salad is especially good. They also serve kambucha which was nice to find.

“Best bread, cakes und tasty fresh food”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

We went to this restaurant for lunchtime and got an All-You-Can-Eal-Buffet for just 110Pesos. The food was really fresh and super tasty. After a long time taveling it was great to eat REAL, fresh, homemade bread. They have a bunch of different breads and cakes. We definitly can recommended this restaurant and the store.

“One of BEST in San Cristobal - EXCELLENT quality.”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

I reside in San Cristobal half-time (the other half-year in Santa Fe NM, a gourmet pleasure city).

While the regional cuisine of Chiapas does not equal that of Oaxaca, Jalisco, Puebla, etc - San Cristobal has a fair number of "foreign" cuisine restaurants: Italian, French, some Asian (not many good ones), Argentine, etc.

I dine out regularly in SanCris (as well as some home cooking - my mom owned a restaurant in USA, and I've taken Culinary Arts Institute courses in USA). San Cristobal caters to lower-budget and economy travelers.

Casa del Pan has VERY fresh and high quality ingredients (especially organic produce) and the chefs prepare a variety of high quality soups, salads, pastas, and ESPECIALLY their house breads baked fresh daily.

The daily buffet, usually 1pm-4pm+, is always excellent - not the cheapest in town, but very moderately priced for traveler budgets. Their licuados (smoothies) and desserts are always very good. Service is very good and very friendly.

While I am not vegetarian, I do appreciate the always-fresh veggies, salads, entrees, etc. Most evenings there is a street-side stand at the entrance making tasty tacos & quesadillas to order.

Casa del Pan can be summed up in a few words: QUALITY, FRESH, TASTY.

“Excellent, heathy and tasty - and friendly!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

Excellent in every way - particularly after a lack of healthy options in Mexico. Highly recommend and wish we had found this place earlier! Very affordable too!

“A nice break for a meat-free lunch”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I arrived there after having had lunch in El Argentino (good, btw!) craving a meat free meal, and left quite satisfied!.
Special stars (that day) was the mushroom lasagna (super super nice!) and the corn bread was to die for.
Service was kind of "normal" and the waiter even came a bit worried when i was looking into one of the sauces they bring at the beginning of the meal (I was wondering what was inside because it was very tasty), and he explained the ingredients. The place is very nice, it has a cinema and looks like a big complex.
Would definitively come back.
