Three servings of green Chilaquiles and the were all great. The shops supporting the Zapatistas around the outside were interesting and the service was lovely.

We read mixed reviews about this place so we went in with relatively low expectations. We actually had a great time and were really glad we went. The service was excellent. We appreciated the atmosphere with the shops and photos and general spaciousness. Everyone was right, the mole was fantastic. We had a few wonderful surprises like delicious blackberry agua fresca and black beans that were out of this world. The other dishes we had were super simple - but that was totally ok because after a time of traveling its better to not have super rich food at every meal.

Read about this place in Lonely Planet & a recent newspaper article. The space is amazing, walls adorned with large black & white photos of Zapatistas. There are also 3 small shops selling Zapatista made goods & clothing. Just had a beer, but the food being served looked good. Well worth a visit if you’re into the movement.

This is a huge, but comfortable café in a courtyard, in the evenings bands are playing. It is a nice place to while away a few hours, e.g. reading or chatting. The food is OK European Café Food - think Buschetta, Salads, Sandwiches and Pizzas. They have good teas, but avoid the wine. And don‘t expect culinary highlights - I guess, for San Cristobal, it is good, but we have eaten far better food both in other Mexican cities.
