We stopped here after perusing Amate book shop. Such an interesting courtyard and mix of people drinking coffee, talking, working on computers, etc. And relaxing!

Good place to stop for a coffee or a hot or cold Oaxacana chocolate. Nice spot for a quick snack and to find some solace.

You stop for a coffee, you order a latte for a change. The latte is not only perfectly brewed, but also has this delightful cream fern on top. It was perfect.

The title pretty well sums it up. The coffee is delicious, the sandwiches were surprisingly good, the ambiance was pleasant. Enjoy yourself!

The staff is friendly and fun, and the coffee perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. They have a lovely courtyard to sit, relax and visit with others.

This is a locally owned café. The decor is great. The coffee is always on the spot. I love the sandwiches, try the turkey. Also the peanut cookies are delicious. The "limonada texana" is refreshing.

Brilliant coffee and nice serving staff too. About 3 blocks from Plaza Santo Domingo. If I could have, I would have come back for another!
