We stopped in for lunch and found a small restaurant with additional tables set up in a small quiet courtyard. We shared a large delicious chicken salad full of fresh vegetables along with a mango lassi and café frio. The food was fresh with generous portions and affordable. Both drinks were excellent! It's a small place centrally located and well... More

I went there for breakfast. I had scrambled eggs which came with friedbeans, bread, fresh orange juce and coffee. The food was good, but the coffe tasted watery. They have a coffee machine and maybe the coffee from the machine might taste better. We never went back to find out.

I discovered Cafe Los Cuiles based on other reviews - it's terrific! The location is just a half block off of the main promenade street, and it's a simple, relaxed cafe with delicious food and, of course, wonderful coffee. The staff was polite and attentive. It was instantly my favorite little hidden gem in Oaxaca. I just wish I'd found... More

In a little courtyard near Plaza Santo Domingo. Good lunch options such as a garlicky humus, avocado stuff with tuna salad in addition to fruit salads and smoothies.

I stayed for almost two weeks at the Posada Margarita just behind Los Cuiles and so I probably had something there every day. It is the perfect place to begin the day, close out the evening or take a break anytime.

We stumbled upon this cafe as we were walking around Centro. We sat in the courtyard and while we waited for our food we browsed the nearby shops. The service was okay, neither quick nor as painfully slow as other reviewers have experienced. We were sat by the kitchen and the staff appeared to be having a wonderful time as... More

A local friend suggested we try Los Cuiles and we are glad we had time to sit and enjoy a sunny breakfast on the patio. We had eggs and a mango lassi, which was excellent. For a very small price two of us had a good breakfast and a chance to relax in a quiet area apart from the normal... More

Best chai lattes, I don't know how they make the foam so thick. A great place to get a drink and do homework, however not the best food.

I was very impressed, their prices are very very affordable I was not expecting the food to be as good as it was. Very small place but very cosy.
