This restaurant is slightly off the beaten bath. For a simple supper I sought it out because of the TripAdvisor reviews. I was the only diner and enjoy a tasty hot ham and manchego cheese sandwich on a baguette. I could not resist the recommended hot cocoa and some flan -- which did not disappoint. The restaurant/lobby is simple and... More

The menu is limited but the food and service is excellent. There are rooms available that we stayed in for 4 nights. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

When in Guanajuato, I urge you to take the time to explore the streets beyond the main road. I was happy to find El Zopilote on a quiet street. It is a nonsmoking (what a relief) indoor cafe with interesting books on the shelf and delicious hot chocolate, served with a sugar cookie. I chose a table by the window... More

Just a hole in the wall but excellent Breakfast and very friendly people. You can see the kitchen which is not much more than a kitchen in a home. However they can prepare some very good food. Mostly Mexican dishes but really good. Its easy to miss as it is just a door way with a very small sign. Zopilote... More

I had breakfast here often on my last visit to Guanajuato to study Spanish as I stayed in one of their buildings. Coffee was from Chiapas and excellent. The package breakfast was a bargain. Warm inviting fairly spacious place. Friendly service.

Fantastic Oaxacan hot chocolate in a beautiful and artistic setting. My wife accidentally left a parcel behind and the owner ran after us to return it. Great place to relax, read, check out the art. Quiet and spacious. We'll be back.

We had breakfast plus afternoon coffee here several times during our week long stay in Guanajuato. Food is good (perfect eggs for breakfast), coffee hits the mark, plus if you have a sweet tooth, for an afternoon treat, try Chef Ursula's flan. Had the cinnamon flan a couple times and am looking forward to recreating it at home - not... More
