I'll preface this by saying that this is probably the most negative review I've ever written. I'm not a negative guy, but ... GEEZ. If you can't run a simple cafe, then folks deserve to know about it--right?!? What's wrong with Cafe Tal? What could possibly warrant such a poor review? Let's see; let me count the ways ... *...

I recently spent two weeks in Guanajuato, working remotely. Cafe Tal is quiet, has strong Wifi, and serves amazing coffee. I don't know how, but it's actually creamy (without adding cream). The staff is friendly, helpful, and always smiling. There are rooms on both sides of a small alley, two floors on each side. Each room has windows that let... More

The title says it all...except add, good coffee, the rare refill, wifi, street scene views, a nice varied fruit plate yogurt, a mega hot coco that was all chocolate and all for about 5$ US.

Probably the only normal coffee I've been able to find in the States or Mexico. Taste of coffee was OK, not a bean I'll remember, and it wasn't strong enough. Soy milk was still on the sweet side. Coffee wasn't hot enough. If you're a coffee enthusiast or from somewhere like Australia where coffee is excellent, this would be average... More

We were just wandering the streets and stumbled into this cafe...literally (if you walk down the alley ways of Guanajuato you know what I mean). TAL the cat was sitting outside the front door and wandered in. They were tasting beans and we were drawn in. Best cappuccino we have had in Mexico. This is not a big milky type,... More

The food in Cafe Tal is really great, but the service is really bad and they should get better at this! The food on the other hand is really amazing, is a great non-Mexican breakfast on Guanajuato!

Actually I came back with 6 bags of coffee this trip to tide me over. This is my favorite coffee shop in the world, the cappuccino is to swoon over. Greg the owner is totally cool.

Since my last visit, this place has finally enforced Mexico's smokefree law which makes it MUCH more pleasant! Cute place, good coffee, decent service.
