Every where we went, we ordered coffees but they were really weak, watery and lacking true flavor. This cafe is right next to El Meson de Las Poetas Hotel and once we tried it we made this our spot. Beans are freshly roasted daily, you can watch the magic. The baristas are friendly and skilled in making anything: Lattes, Americanos,... More

One of the best places for coffee in Guanajuato. The location is charming, only a few seats available. I wish they wouldn't use styrofoam cups, though!

Best coffee since Café Jekemir in Mexico City. Don't fool around if you are looking for a nice strong flavoured coffee, just come here and enjoy.

Coffee is a very personal taste. We found the coffee in Guanajuato to be surprising average ... however Cafe Conquistador is the best around town. Located right near the Diego Riviera Museum its a great stop to get your fix. And yes they have soya leche!

This tiny cafe has great coffee that is roasted on site. While there is some room to sit and drink the coffee, it is really cramped. It´s probably best to get your coffee to go and take it a nearby park or square to enjoy it. My cortado was really good, and my wife said her mocha was one of... More

We discovered this small cafe just next door to our hotel by the smell of the roasting coffee beans! Really good coffee, as well as other coffee drinks.
