This coffee house at Guadalajara has great style, kind of a mix of art-déco, your grand parents couches and offers excelent music and wi-fil high speed internet for free. It is a remarkable nice space to spend a lazy evening or get ready to party at night. They play a great music selection and sometimes have local musics playing an instrument for a couple of hours at night.
Coffe is made with cfraftsmanship and high quality grain that comes from South Mexico. They offer an outstanding organic chai, caffeine free, and a selection of real teas, served in beautiful teapots handmade. Italian capuccino and chai frappe are the specialties. The hungry traveller will find paninis, french quiches, tartines with paté and rilletes, cakes and old-fashion chocolate chip cookies, among other surprises, since the menu changes often.
The owners offer also the daily journal, and a selection of very interesting magazines among wich are the Nouvel Observateur (french), Letras Libres, Replicante, Reverso and Luvina. It is a great spot to know people related to journalism, arts and culture.
Favorite Dish: Quiches were a discovery. I found out they are made by a French chef. They offer them with onions and with ham (quice lorraine). It is served warm, with a generous side of salad, that has an excellent and tasty vinagrette. Ask them with a Chai frappe, and it is heaven.

One of my favorite restaurants was El Parián in Tlaquepaque, which is a suburb of Guadalajara
Favorite Dish: When in Guadalajara, you absolutely must try dishes that are typical of the region. Only in Guadalajara can you find Mexican authentic samples of tortas ahogadas (which are delicious ham sandwiches drowned ('ahogados') in a salsa sauce (don't worry, they are not necessarily hot, and can even be served with the hot stuff on the side), sopes (like gorditas, but tastier), and pozole.
We went to a restarurant named Pipiolo's. It was wonderful. We drank Ricewater and ate all diffent types of food.
The food is all cooked where you can see it, and you can watch the people make the tortilla's right there.
When I asked to take pictures, they let me into the closed off area so I could get some good pictures.
Favorite Dish: I liked the shredded beef enchilada's.
