El Campanero is for more than walking

You{ll know you're on El Campanero, a sloping pedestrian street connecting Sopeña and Sangre de Cristo in Guanajuato by the archway. Now the street, with three restaurants and cafeterias, makes a fine stopping point for relaxing and sipping or eating.

Santocafe, with its outside tables on the arch, is the oldest establishment or you can sit inside with their hip, young crowd. A bit pricey but in line with the other two places along the street and with a more ample menu, meaning you can get a hot meal there. Some vegetarian options.

Farther up, you'll come to La Casona del Campanero. You'll see a passageway that leads to the patio and a half dozen shops filled with upscale crafts. A good place for coffee and, I've heard, salads.

El Kaapeh is the newest, featuring coffee, salads and breakfast. Seating is at tables or on their sofa near the coffee bar. If you're hungry, you can proceed upstairs to Doña Lety's Fonda Antigua.
