Breakfast here was great. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious, and the portions were more than adequate. Also, the house-made hot chocolate is a must-have.

One of the best, high quality Mexican food in Mexico City. Delicious breakfast and lunch. Locations in Palmas (near Polanco), in the South of the city and in downtown.

Wonderful, creative gourmet breakfasts with best hot chocolate, breads, and fresh ingredients at extremely reasonable price and outstanding service. Be prepared for a long wait for a table if you arrive on a weekend after about 9 am.

You can really enjoy food, specially prepared and served; well located. But it is too crowded, therefore slow service and too noisy, so it is hard talking

Great mexican upscale food. It is a good way to start your day. I’ve visited both locations (Palmas and Centro Histórico) - good ambience, families. The only catch is that it gets full. So it’s important that you’re either early or patient :)

Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent

into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An
array of cultural and artistic activities are
organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays
