We went for breakfast, the chocolate wasn't as good as other times, the egg omelete tasted like it was cooked with old oil, the bolillos were burned, it was a little disapointing,

We had the taco appetizers as an early dinner. Just right. I loved the purse stands that are beside every table.

I went for breakfast and think I spent about 15-20 euros, but I got a great breakfast, and was very satisfied with my experience there. The hot chocolate is fantastic.

A must in Mexico City! Delicious food! Freshly made corn tortillas Must try the molcajete! A green mild salsa with wedges of fresh cheese and avocado. Excellent service!

Oooooh, loved the chicken in mole (not spicy). Great bread! Exellent service/fast/friendly. Authentic spot, the original one, on a busy downtown street--our Mexican friend insisted we eat here--she was so right! Loved it and highly recommend.

Every time I visit Mexico City I make sure my hotel is in close proximity to one (not kidding).
