There are several cafe brujulla and all of them are good and have their own special characters. The staff are friendly and speak English, good coffee and free wifi , what else do you need.

Seriously good coffee that they source and roast themselves. Good desserts, too. There's a lovely little courtyard - they bring your order out to you - and you can sip, people-watch, read, etc.

This is a cool place they have a few in the centre of town with a good young vibe and great wifi. You have to try the hot chocolate its amazing.

Great coffee. Perfect service. Clean restroom, but pricey. Long hours for Oaxaca. I'd recommend this place highly.

It's just a coffee shop, but the service is great, the coffee excellent, and you can feel good that it's organic and fair trade, and local! The ambiance of the place is hip but not TOO trendy, so an old guy like me can feel good hanging out there for his morning brew. Or his afternoon shot of espresso!

Not limited to just coffee and chocolate, the Cafe Brujula also offers fruit drinks and a selection of pastries. Free wifi and some power outlets makes it a good place to stop and recharge as you refresh.

We stopped by this cafe for a coffee and place to rest on several occasions. Great coffee and snacks and a lovely courtyard to rest, enjoy your coffee and people watch.

We went here in the afternoon for a cappuccino and a cortado. The quality of coffee is good. WiFi worked well and the setting is nice too. Unfortunately they don't allow smoking even though the patio is open and with the necessary respect no other guests would have been bothered.

Thank Kilian P
