Love the lechero. The coffee is very smooth, delicious. Did not eat a meal here, but had a dessert with coffee for three days straight.

Nice place to take a cup of coffee and some biscuits. If you want lunch or dinner there are better places to go with better food and a lot cheaper.

La Parroquia is an excellent restaurant a walking distance from Emporio Hotel and from other attractions in Veracruz. It is also very close to downtown Veracruz.

In any cafe you would automatically expect wifi, but none here. They have good coffee and snacks. Also serve lunch and dinner

Although the location is great, this cafe is extremely loud, the service is unattentive, even unfriendly. Coffee and food are ok, but nothing special. Very disappointing....
