We left our Airbnb apartment and walked a different way looking for a place for breakfast. We found El Chahuistle and were so happy we did. First of all, they bring a thermos of coffee to your table and the coffee spelled of cinnamon and...More

Each morning we ate breakfast at this tiny (three tables down, three up--steep stairs--and one outside. Arturo, the majordomo made us feel very welcome, though his English was at the same level as our Spanish. Still, we loved this place.

Breakfast is always excellent, the food is prepared the way you want, and the portions are ample, and the price is reasonable.

Delicioys chilaquiles! Also very nice hamburguers, but careful, it's a lot of food, you might want to share. Great place for sunday breakfast with friends and family.

Had a quick lunch here while we were studying in Guanajuato. The food was quick and generously sized. I got the Pozole which I hadn't yet tried and I wasn't disappointed; hot, tangy from the chilli and full of chicken. My partner got a Hawaiian...More

Nothing too attractive here but the location on the corner. Basic decor and food menu, which isn't too bad of a thing, tacos done well. Good meal just nothing special

Not sure if it lives up to the "sweet little place" with "amazing food" and "great food" descriptions. One thing that annoyed our party of 4 was that there were no prices listed on the menu (very rare in our Mexican travels). The young staff...More

This is a sweet little place with amazing food right in the center of Guanajuato. Stumbled upon it while walking around at lunchtime, and the ladies were lovely and very welcoming and the food was very home style made with a lot of pride.

This is one of the very places you can eat at outside for a decent price. The basic rule is, of course, to avoid the plazas, which are usually tourist traps with high prices and bad food (such as La Botellita, Van Gogh, and pretty...More

This is a small corner restaurant run by two women. They serve breakfast and lunch. We have been there twice for lunch and both times ordered the menu, the fixed price multicourse meal. The menu includes an agua fresca, soup, salad, entree with meat, rice and vegetables, and dessert. The food is great Mexican homecooking. Not fancy but simple and full of flavor. Very delicious. Very accessible. There are, of course, a la carte items which we have never tried. I recommend this strongly as a restaurant with authentic flavors of Mexico.
