South CD.MX. The best restaurant for a typical Mexican breakfast in Mexico City, the waiter chief Valdemar and all staff members make a great experience besides the magnificent Mexican paintings around this place. Don't miss a concha with nata and hit chocolate

San Angel
San Ángel is known for its artistic vibe and elegant
details displayed throughout its streets, antique
residences and haciendas where famous actors like
Consuelo Velázquez, Capulina and other prominent
families used to live and that have now been turned
into beautiful galleries, cafés and restaurants. An
array of cultural and artistic activities are
organized in the neighborhood, but it is on Saturdays
