Don't bother, service is poor, the food is just about edible and they tried to charge us $25 for two slices of tomato, because the sandwich they made did not have enough tomato to start with.

This is a great place to enjoy a beer, or some local cuisine. I had Brazo de Reina, which is basically a vegetarian tamale. I loved it. The local history surrounding this cafe is just amazing.

A nice coffee shop featuring snacks desserts, and full meals. They set chairs and tables outside, as well as seats. At night, they have live music usually playing boleros and ballads creating a nice environment.
