I love the atmosphere, they have a section with air-condition and is probably the most modernly designed café I have visited in León. The location is great and the street has a lot of little craft- and book stores. However I personally think they could offer a more varied range of foods, but all in all it lives up to... More

I loved this coffee shop vibes and they serve very good coffee. It was very relaxing and perfect to take few hours out from exploring the city and just having a chat with friends or making arrangements for next travels. They have nice interior design and superclean toilets. They also serve food which i didnt have but i saw their... More

We were in Corinto on a cruise ship and booked a tour into Leon. Our guide took us here for lunch and we were all happy with his choice. We had pre-ordered fajita"s and were seated in the air conditioned room. This was a welcome change from the heat. The food and beer came in a timely fashion and was... More

For some reason, the day and time we stopped in, it took over 30 minutes for a single cup of coffee to appear! The coffee was good, but 30+ minutes?!?! Along with free wifi, the setting is nice and there's an air-conditioned room which is great to escape the heat of Leon. I'd try going there again to see if... More

In my nearly 2 months in Leon, I have gotten coffee and eaten in Liberlula almost everyday enjoying the fabulously rich, smooth coffee, beautifully prepared food in a nice environment. The air conditioned room is a haven from the Leon's heat and the fountain room is partially open to the sky and kept very comfortable with quiet ceiling fans. The... More

This place is a little pricier than the local cafes, but the a/c is frigid ( in a good way) and the coffee drinks and smoothies were delicious. Try the peanut butter coffee shake. We didn't eat any food here, but it looked good too.

We stopped here a few times for coffee and lunch and had mixed service. We were ignored once, taken good care of another time, and a third time we were sort of left to fend for ourselves. The food was good, but service was a bit lacking. Good spot for lunch or coffee or a cold drink after visiting the... More

Libelula is a beautiful café with good coffee and delicious pies. But what stopped me from going there more often, is the bad service. Very slow and some of them (especially the girls that stand at the counter) even pretty unfriendly. I also needed to use the internet for work, but most of the time it was not working. So... More

This place is nice as it's not an american chain, they have decent coffee AND they make the best designs on their cappuccinos! I've never had food but their drinks are nice. Oh and of course, in a place like Leon, having aircon is almost enough to not care about the quality of food/drinks HA!
