The atmosphere is great. La Mata Tinta is set back off the street in a small shopping complex. There is a large open air seating area in the front. Venturing further in reveals the bar in the back and a secluded seating area to the left. Staff is friendly and attentive, but English language may not be available depending on who is working. A rudimentary knowledge of Spanish will get you by.
A selection of Mexican beers is available; Indio, XX, Bohemia, & Tecate. You can also have coffee, juices, wine, cocktails or liquor.
Food menu includes appetizers, salads, sandwiches (Panini or Wrap) and about six entrees. I have only tried the house made chips (mafalda). They were good, but would be better shared with others. Next visit, if solo, I would try the nachos guacamole.
Be sure to ask about drink specials. Often they will offer 2 for 1.

I lived in Tlaquepaque for 5 months, and this is where I always went to hang out.

The atmosphere is great with both outdoor and indoor seating. There is free wifi and a fantastic wine selection as well as coffee. You can order nachos, cheese platters, salads, etc. to munch on, although I would plan to eat a meal elsewhere.

Often there is good live music (not mariachi but folk or jazz music) going on in the evenings.

The servers also speak good English.
