We ate lunch here once, and went back for coffee a couple of times. The food is average, but the coffee is great. The frozen Mocha was a perfect sweet treat in steamy Leon, and the Butterfly in steamed milk on the cappuccino was a...More

I heard about a good coffee shop near the art museum and after walking a couple of blocks, I saw the bakery case and smelled the coffee. Extra bonus - their dining room is air conditioned! The "cafe frios" offerings were the best. I had...More

We had better coffee the 2nd time we went. They have an extensive range of hot and iced coffees as well as fruit juice. We did not try the cakes but they looked very tempting. Staff were friendly and helpful. Recommend.

What a joy to discover this place one block north of the square. I could not pass without tasting another great concoction whether ice or hot. Very good indeed. Much discipline is called upon when viewing those delicious desserts (I failed).

The best coffee in a city with many great restaurants. We ate breakfast twice and lunch once during a short stay in Leon and will definitely return on our next visit. Try the omelettes and the crepes.

Well, under the heat of Leon's sun, Libelula's salon with AC would be a heaven if only I didn't miss it. It is just on the right hand side when you enter. Also they have a garden. I went there for breakfast, had a Nica...More
