The Cafe was affordable, clean, friendly, and quiet. A perfect place to relax as the sun rises. The coffee was of quality I would expect in Mexico, which means I could drink it black with no problem. I fully intend to return later in my...More

Stopped in at their location across from Santo Domingo for an afternoon latte. The location was active, staff were attentive, and service quick. Unfortunately, our latte’s were not hot enough for my liking. Cafe Brujula was O K, but nothing to write home about.

I agree that the ambience is great, but not the coffee or food. I had a hot cappuccino and chocolate cake. I guess if you like the sour type of cappuccino, the coffee is acceptable. But the chocolate cake is just sweet - not aromatic...More
