Good breakfast, good bread, not so good with the included coffee. Nice environment, music and service.

At first glance it’s a nice little place. However the coffee was burnt and the enchilladas were tasteless and made me and my friends sick. Definitely a no-go for me. Seems like this place has known better times.

A menu with a good variety. Every dish is prepared fresh. We love the chilliquiles and its sauce. Don't miss the bakery. We walk a mile to buy our multi-grain bread-the best in town-every other day. We love to buy a pastry and coffee and...More

This was the first place I went to when I arrived in San Cristóbal. The Café has cute interior design with a little bakery inside. The breakfast we had there was delicious plus good coffee! Staff was very polite. Definitely worth a visit!

Great food quality and huge choice of cakes and bread for coffee or tea time. I chose the soup of the day and it was so delicious.

A comfortable restaurant across from the inboard fabrics market. The papas frites are excellent and the lasagna is great.

This honesty the only bakery in San Cris that knows how to bake bread. The quality of ingredients is not as good as casa del pan. They also sell some Asian and natural food. Haven't eaten at their cafe.

Madre Tierra was a pleasant surprise-we stopped there because we wanted coffee and because it was starting to rain:) We ordered quiche and coffee- the quiche was spinach and cheese and was fabulous as was the crust! We also spoiled ourselves with a cheese roll...More
