We stopped in several times for coffee at Cafe Brujula. The coffee is excellent, nicely roasted beans make good cappuccinos and cold coffee drinks on the hot afternoons and evenings. The staff are young and get a bit disorganized at times but they all enjoy themselves and holidays are not about getting impatient. Good locations in the city.

We just went in to have coffee and if it's definitely very good. Nice atmosphere as well and a gorgeous courtyard. We didn't try anything else, but the sandwiches looked very tempting.

We stopped here after perusing Amate book shop. Such an interesting courtyard and mix of people drinking coffee, talking, working on computers, etc. And relaxing!

Good place to stop for a coffee or a hot or cold Oaxacana chocolate. Nice spot for a quick snack and to find some solace.

You stop for a coffee, you order a latte for a change. The latte is not only perfectly brewed, but also has this delightful cream fern on top. It was perfect.

The staff is friendly and fun, and the coffee perfect for an afternoon pick-me-up. They have a lovely courtyard to sit, relax and visit with others.
