In Café Andrade, the coffee has a special taste that comes from Coatepec, a town near the Gulf of Mexico renowned for the best coffee in the Mexican Republic. The flavor is delicious and you’ll find authentic Mexican desserts like flan napolitano and coffee cookies. We recommend the frappe cappuccino, a frozen drink with a touch of tikal, a popular coffee liquor. In addition, you can try traditional dishes like fried beans and molletes. Don’t worry about the hot weather, the place has air conditioning, so you can also dare to try their delicious hot chocolate.
