I think this place is over-the-top amazing. First, the building is amazingly gorgeous. There are huge windows everywhere and the view is to die for. The waiters are very attentive. It's the only place I know of here in San Miguel de Allende where they continuously keep your coffee cup full. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Given all... More

Muro has built an impressive new location with three levels. But the food is still great. The new location is above the Aurora in the Obraje but just a cab away from Centro. Try the lamb burrito or the eggs Benedict.

Hard to find the first time. But they wil come find you if you are lost, We were: they did! Excellent fresh Mexican dishes, with México City flare! Stunning space and views! Casual. Excellent value. It's our new stop on the way home from a swim at Toabada. Soups are numerous and special. The toastada are always crunchy: a bit... More

This is one of our most favorite places for breakfast and lunch in SMA. Delicious food and OUTSTANDING service. When we return to San Miguel the next time, they will be in their new location. We will follow them there.

We have had breakfast and lunch many times over the past three years and have always been delighted with the food and service. Today we visited Cafe Muro in their new building/location. Their new space is light-filled and contemporary with great views (on the 2nd floor) of San Miguel. We enjoyed Cafe Muro at their previous location, but with the... More

To say this was a satisfying dining experience is an understatement! We had breakfast and the menu had some outstanding items such as eggs benedict - with ham or salmon or vegetarian. The sauce was perfect and the salad that went with it was substantial. Don't want greens then take the potatoes. The mimosas were unique with a touch of... More

We walked to their new location from our house in Guadalupe. Great location near Fabrica Aurora in a neighborhood on the side of a hill. The eggs Benedict was one of the best that I have had in any restaurant. The only downfall is that the meal was a little lukewarm. It is cold this time of year, and it... More

Cafe Muro has always been great. We went to the Loreto site for breakfast and it had disappeared! No sign on the door or any help, but a near-by shop gave us directions. It is now at San Gabriel #1, in the Obraje neighborhood. A bit of a hike from town center, in a new building in a residential neighborhood,... More

Four of us met for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. The new location is somewhat tucked away in the Obraje neighborhood. It's at the top of a steep dead end street, at San Gabriel #1. The old address on Loreto is no longer valid. If you don't know the northern end of the city well, it might be better to... More

MuRo Named after the two surnames of one of the two guys who own it, Cafe MuRo open in Loreto Street stayed there from May 2010 to recently when it moved to its new venue at 1 San Gabriel St. in the beautiful Barrio del Obraje, just few setos from Fabrica La Aurora. It has been known for the quality of food and friendship of the staff- Cafe MuRo is a prestigious establishment well known for its cozy and homey atmosphere and popularity with locales and foreigners. Many regulars bring out-of-town visitors who want to get a "feel" of Mexican flavors in a not pretentious place. Cafe MuRo is much more a pleasant than the location might suggest. Not much to look at from the street, until you spy the delicacies within. The menu consists of simple, well-cooked, fresh and traditional Mexican food. Wonderful home-bread and soups, salad, good-sized portions, and fair prices make it a great place for everybody. Staff is friendly and helpful. When you come to MuRo, you are guaranteed a good meal and friendly service everybody time. Highlights include breakfast all day, a salad to die for and strong Mexican cofee that will knock you out. We assure you that once you are sitting in Cafe MuRo enjoying its food and service, you might want to stay longer that you originally tought! See you soon!
