We were searching for Cafe del la Flor, which is in the same complex but couldn't find it. So we decided to eat here; what a mistake. Food is not fresh, the place was empty which should have alerted us to avoid. Do not recommend.

We took friends visiting from Spain who had dined at other Sanborn's in Mexico. They thought this was the worst one they had ever been to. The service was S--L--O--W and they didn't have everything on the menu. The restaurant itself was pleasant, but we...More

Within the Sanborn's Department store, with underground parking. The food was very good, and I loved the waitresses Mexican uniforms, service was very good. Wide variety of choices.

In the center of Tijuana, among shops the cafe of Sanborns is located. The cafe is good. The personnel are polite. We have ordered chicken soup there. Soup was very tasty. I have written a response in the book of cafe. Good ratio price quality.

I've lunched at the Revolucion restaurant a couple of times lately. Both times the same waitress served us and does she ever have a big chip on her shoulder. Slow as molasses in January. Indifferent. Uncaring. I assume there is no manager as I haven't...More

Yes at one time just about every Sanborns sits on what used to be a Denny's! However with a Mexican flare of cafeteria food. The enchiladas and chilaquiles are bland and so lifeless. I pass on Breakfast there.

Sanborn's is delightful, and I start each visit there right after checking in, usually to Hotel Ticuan. The servers wear traditional Mexican dresses, and the atmosphere is clean and genuine. Only the menus in Spanish have the prices. There is a very nice buffet available,...More
