Best coffee ever, local vibe, friendly staff, really good food and a lot of tradition in this spot. Variety on the menu, plenty of food on your plate, homemade taste.

Stop in for the Lechero. This is on of the three famous cafes in Veracruz that serve a great Lechero.

If you are American, don't waste your time here. They happily ignore you as long as possible and it takes a long time to actually get your food. Even then, it's not amazing, just average.

I had heard of La Parroquia before even arriving at Veracruz. Really good restaurant that reminded of Brazilian Bakeries, where you can sit, have a coffee and eat. Always crowded, but it's a huge place so you won't wait for too long. Great food !...More
