Description: MuRo Named after the two surnames of one of the two guys who own it, Cafe MuRo open in Loreto Street stayed there from May 2010 to recently when it moved to its new venue at 1 San Gabriel St. in the beautiful Barrio del Obraje, just few setos from Fabrica La Aurora. It has been known for the quality of food and friendship of the staff- Cafe MuRo is a prestigious establishment well known for its cozy and homey atmosphere and popularity with locales and foreigners. Many regulars bring out-of-town visitors who want to get a "feel" of Mexican flavors in a not pretentious place. Cafe MuRo is much more a pleasant than the location might suggest. Not much to look at from the street, until you spy the delicacies within. The menu consists of simple, well-cooked, fresh and traditional Mexican food. Wonderful home-bread and soups, salad, good-sized portions, and fair prices make it a great place for everybody. Staff is friendly and helpful. When you come to MuRo, you are guaranteed a good meal and friendly service everybody time. Highlights include breakfast all day, a salad to die for and strong Mexican cofee that will knock you out. We assure you that once you are sitting in Cafe MuRo enjoying its food and service, you might want to stay longer that you originally tought! See you soon!

Gerardo the owner is the ultimate host. I have been there 3 times and never disappointed. I always have the lunch special for 99pesos. It includes soup or salad, entrée, drink, dessert, and coffee. The staff is friendly and bilingual. You feel welcome and at home. I highly recommend eating here. It has a small gallery and the bathroom is first rate.

The fun part of going to this restaurant is the staff and attention you get. Last time that I was there I was waiting on friends, and I was brought magazine to look at while waiting. The colors and feeling that you get inside is just part of the experience. The rest is very good food at a reasonable cost. It one of those places that I would strongly say, "Don't miss it!"

One of the friendliest places in San Miguel. The food is great, but most important, Gerardo and Carlos always make you feel welcome. We eat their at least two or three times a week when we visit. We have introduced many friends to Muro and they all love it like we do,

Great intimate atmosphere, staff is friendly and attentive. Food is good. It is located in Centro, but not right on the main Plaza, which makes it more interesting.
It has a gallery and monthly openings.
I like to meet friends for breakfast and hag out and talk, look at the art pick up brochures on the latest in San Miguel.
