Cafe La Rosita has a great lunch! It is in expensive and filling. They have a daily special that comes with a drink for a very reasonable price. If you sit on the second floor you can see the skyline of Leon and the WiFi is free. I've never had a bad meal here, either ordering off the menu or... More

They have a great breakfast. It's a little pricy but you get a lot of good food therefore ok. If you seat upstairs you have great views over the city.

We were encouraged by the staff to sit upstairs - great advice. There's a lovely breeze on the verandah upstairs. We started with a coffee, then decided to have lunch too. For 110 Cordoba we had lovely chicken dishes with salad, rice and juice. Very tasty.

On my way from Mercadito to the terminal, I stopped here with my big mochila. I sat up my backpack at one table and went to the counter to order coffee as it was a morning time. The staff informed me that I can go upstairs as there are many windows with good ventilation. They clearly noticed how much I... More

If you go for this restaurant, make sure you get upstairs. From there you have good sights over Leon. Reasonable food quality

Liked this cute little cafe. First place we at in Leon. Cheap food, good staff, and yummy eats. Would recommend. Their coffee drinks also looked amazing but we didn't try them.

This is our go-to place to study every day. They have great views from their upstairs area, excellent service and the cappuccinos are really excellent. The staff are all friendly, attentive and really fun to chat with.
