Great, inexpensive vegetarian food

This place is still open (and has been for the last 15 years!), though is a bit of a walk from the centro (google maps is incorrect about the location, but the address is correct, so go by that).
I just had the lunch buffet for 60 pesos, and it was definitely worth it! As a vegan, I ended up having the following dishes:
Mixed wild rice (a really nice surprise!)
Chayote and carrots (sauteed)
Tofu and veggie salad (surprisingly tasty!)
Vegan pozole soup
Nopalitos (cactus) salad
Plus, there was a wonderful and fresh salad bar (with many veggie options, but only olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dressing).
Lastly, there were about 5 or 6 dishes that had eggs or cheese. So, if you are not vegan, you could enjoy those too.
All said, this place was a nice surprise. They definitely use no chicken broth in anything. Nothing too creative, but good and inexpensive vegetarian Mexican fare. I will definitely be going back!
Also, the buffet begins at 1pm and closes when food runs out (between 3:30 and 4pm). Your best best is to get there between 1 and 3pm!
inexpensive, 100% vegetarian!, tasty!
not super creative
