We were lucky to get one of the 3 tables on the bridge. Friendly service, big portions and the food was very tasty. Would definitely eat here again.

Excellent and extensive menu, reasonable prices, and friendly waitstaff made this one of our favorite spots for lunch and dinner. We enjoyed sitting inside and absorbing the local atmosphere.

Unique location with a bridge one can dine on. Excellent Aztec soup very filling. We asked for and got sour cream which eased the spices. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his crepe. Only drawback was no wine but will go back because of extensive menu

We've been in Guanajuato for 2 weeks and this has turned out to be our favorite restaurant despite the fact that it's nearly impossible to get a seat on the bridge! There's a nice variety of delicious, reasonably priced food, and the wait staff is friendly. We'll miss this place.

We had lunch here a couple of days in this city and really enjoyed the whole experience. We sat outside on the balcony thing that overlooks the road so there was wonderful people watching! The food was excellent and we were not disappointed at all.

This Cafe is located in a very central part of Guanajuato and they have some tables over the bridge (you have to get there early to get one though). The menu is composed of simple and traditional Mexican breakfast options like scrambled eggs with different types of salsa, beans, white bread and tortillas. The cappuccinos are good.

The Restaurant/Café is very nice and good located. I recommend one of the tables outside. You will sit on a little bridge! The food is made with love and the menu is well sorted. Also the prices are cheap! FOR LOVERS OF GERMAN BEER: THEY HAVE ERDINGER ALCOHOL FREE (very seldom) Very nice!

Loved the ambiance though we couldn't eat "on the bridge". Enjoyed the eggs and bacon, eggs with everything, fresh OJ and good coffee.
