The Lechero at the Gran Cafe La Parroquia is worth the hype. Attentive waiters bring you a glass about a third filled with Espresso and then you clink the glass with you spoon and the theatrics begin.

A nice place to get together with family and friends and start gossiping about everything! The food it's just acceptable, modest prices and normal service; nothing outstanding but a very good atmosphere. I think my beloved Veracruz is exporting all the good coffee to the US or to the high class restaurants around Mexico.

Not a "must see" in my book, but it wasn't bad. It is conveniently in a very touristic part and I might've been more impressed if I had someone to tell me the history behind it. The coffee was good, I personally like soy milk and there was non but it was enjoyable.

Nice place to take a cup of coffee and some biscuits. If you want lunch or dinner there are better places to go with better food and a lot cheaper.
