“good not great.”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Middle of the road coffee shop in my opinion. There is nothing bad about it, but nothing jumped out as amazing. The prices were ok, not expensive, but not cheap. The seating was quite comfortable, so that was above average. Otherwise, the wait time for drinks was average. not long, not quick. The staff was not particularly wonderful, but i dont have a bad thing to say about them. The drinks were not really hot (even though i ordered it extra hot), but they didnt come out super cold either. It was hyped up by a lot of friends in town, and by other reviews so i expected something awesome. Overall, it was forgettable. Id go back if i wanted a coffee and passed it again. But i wouldnt go out of my way to go there.

“Coffee art and love the service”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

Although there are other places in León where you can drink a descent coffee I liked Libelula most. The atmosphere in this place is great. It is one of the few cafés where the street sound aren't that loud, so you can sit very comfortable.

The food is good and tasty. Try the carrotcake if it is there, it is for sure the best in town.

But the best thing is the coffee art they make. Order a cappuccino and you can find animals, abstract figures or even writings in your foam. It is magic how they do it!
Add the very pleasant service with that and you have a great place to have a nice sitdown in your day.

“Great place to hang around and have lunch”
Reviewed 3 December 2013

Very nice place for coffee, breakfast and lunch. We had some tasty crepes here and the smoothies were full of fruit. The staff is nice and it´s a relaxing place to calm down after the busy action in Leon - very calm patio. Don´t come here if you can´t stand seeing other tourists.
