Ate in La Rosita a couple of times - once for lunch (decent paninis), and once for breakfast (great pancakes). Food and service were great, and their upstairs area is perfect for relaxing and using the breeze to recover from the heat outside.

Two floors. The upper has a partial view of the city and some volcanoes. Lots of locals come - the dessert and coffee are good and there is a great variety. Plus free WiFi!

This place is located in the center of the city, a black away from the cathedral. It offers great paninis, coffee and desserts. Another really cool thing about this place is that it offers free water refills for your bottles and you can exchange books. Sitting in the second floors allows you to get a great view of the city's... More

We went there for breakfast and ordered coffee and eggs. The wait was so long (more than 50 minutes), we believed they had forgotten. But it would have been understandable had the waitress apologised or anything. In fact, she kept answering her mobile phone, talking to the cook, preparing herself smoothies, while other things were cooling off on trays for... More

Good food and excellent views of Leon from the top floor. There's also a good book exchange. I was able to swap one novel for another. Most titles were in English, and several were enticing.

All we had when we came through was some coffee, snacks and dessert but it was delicious! I love the location! Definitely worth a stop off if you're in Leon.

In its new location, Cafe La Rosita offers fresh, cool drinks, breakfast all day long, and pleasant service. Dining space includes a second level (upstairs) that affords cool breezes, open views of the city, art on the walls, and plenty of space to spread out. Free Internet service makes this a good location to check in or settle in to... More

Good food, great price, but it took a while to get a cup of coffee. Omelette was a little under cooked but I did not mind.

Cafe La Rosita is a wonderful place to rest, cool off and get your caffeine fix. Don't miss it if you are in Leon. The prices are reasonable, the food and drinks are excellent and the service is prompt. We did not attempt dinner here, but coffee and dessert were muy bien.
