This green space is so big that I wrote in winter 2015/16 quite a big part of my new published German book there without ever being disturbed by the many people and families with running children, etc. etc. You are served even in the most distant corner of the huge garden. The food is very good and goes beyond the... More

It's a nice a quaint and unique atmosphere, the food is tasty, but for the high prices, they are incredibly chintzy, with ridiculously small portions that leave you hungry even after you've finished. We sometimes come here on special occasions from elsewhere, and we always hope that the service will be better and the food portions more generous. But even... More

One of the most gorgeous venues in Tepoz in a secluded garden setting with killer views, offering great light food for breakfast or lunch. An attached store offers artisan craft items & books (English & Spanish, including recycled). Parking is very limited inside the gate & tight.

This delightful bookstore, coffee-tea spot, with a lovely tranquil garden where you can stay as long as you'd like, also is the community center for Ex-pats and Mexicans in Tepoztlan. It's convenient but just far enough away from the hectic Centrol. And they have the best Roast Beef Sandwich ever!

This cute bookstore recently hosted a discussion and reading of their works by several authors with amazing resumes. Our gathering and later dinner was great. The store and restaurant are welcoming and should not be missed.

Attended a reading by various writers at this bookstore. The quality of authors presented was amazing for this small town, and the setting was a delight! We attended a dinner following the discussion, and enjoyed a delicious meal. Quite a surprise for us all!

This is our go-to place whenever we are in Tepotzlan. A lovely and expansive outdoor garden where you can really make an afternoon of it (I think some people do) - with a hammock and swings, lots of space to run around, and top views of the mountains. The food is healthy and wholesome and plenty to choose from. Great... More
