Had breakfast here and was very happy with it. It's a nice little place and such good value. We ordered yogurt and granola, a BLT and 2 coffees and this cost 160cordobas/ $6ish. We had breakfast here another day too- the pancakes were delicious! The paninis are excellent too. Service was really quick. The staff were lovely. I definitely recommend... More

Food is ok, a bit over-priced and bland-however great coffee drinks, beautiful views from the top floor and decent wifi.

Dont hold your breath at the first floor, the second floor has most of the action.The wooden floors are expertly crafted. Nice breeze. Complimentary fresh juice with entree. I loved my Nica breakfast with plantains,salsa, scrambled egg, tortilla. I hope to try their tres leches cake next. This cafe is located next to one of the many churches in Leon.... More

I spent some months studying in León, and La Rosita was very frequently visited by our group of students. It seemed to be pretty popular among different groups of students as well, and there were times when we would fill up their entire upstairs area. It's a really nice place to just sit and relax for a few hours. The... More

Good cafe, good service, very good cakes. If you search for nice cafe, this is the place. But the best is the house itself and his atmosphere thanks to wooden floor and ceiling.

I have been visiting Cafe La Rosita for many years now and they are under new owners and new building. Love the upstairs area. It is bright and the views of the city are fabulous. Miss all the gorgeous plants form the old place. The food is still good and the coffee excellent. Real friendly staff, who speak english. Free... More

Went for a week and my hotel, one of the best in leon, had powder coffee in the room. So every morning I went to la Rosita and for the princely sum of 33 cordobas (about $1.25 US) I had a lovely handmade large cafe latte, lovingly made. Very much worth it. Highly recommend if you're nearby.

Ate here last night, and was disappointed frankly. Sure, the food was cheap(ish), but their idea of a salad is laughable. They claimed it came with Avocado, for example, and I received a pencil-thin strip of unripe green flesh. The portions are tiny, the food is average at best. My girlfriend ate a sandwich, and what came out was essentially... More

La Rosita is my home away from my Leon home. It's a two-story cafe very close to the center. The upstairs is the best place to sit for great views of the street and far off volcanos, not too mention getting the breezes in the heat and seeing the downpours in the rainy season. Very inexpensive with a varied menu... More

They serve good breakfast and really good espresso for an exaptable price, but most of the time the waitresses are soooooo slow!
