The place to hangout, go online, relax in a spacious setting and plan the next day in Oaxaca.located on a pedestrian plaza, no cars.. Great smoothies, herbal teas, breads, flans, and coffees of course!

Very good coffee, excellent service, nice staff. I've been to two different Cafe Brujula, different ambiance but equally nice.

We really enjoyed this coffee. They have wifi, a cheerful staff, and great coffee. Ask about their frequent buyer card -- we wound up with a free coffee because of how many times we stopped in.

There are several cafe brujulla and all of them are good and have their own special characters. The staff are friendly and speak English, good coffee and free wifi , what else do you need.

Seriously good coffee that they source and roast themselves. Good desserts, too. There's a lovely little courtyard - they bring your order out to you - and you can sip, people-watch, read, etc.

This is a cool place they have a few in the centre of town with a good young vibe and great wifi. You have to try the hot chocolate its amazing.

Great coffee. Perfect service. Clean restroom, but pricey. Long hours for Oaxaca. I'd recommend this place highly.

It's just a coffee shop, but the service is great, the coffee excellent, and you can feel good that it's organic and fair trade, and local! The ambiance of the place is hip but not TOO trendy, so an old guy like me can feel good hanging out there for his morning brew. Or his afternoon shot of espresso!

Thank Basiluzzo
