I went ti have a bussiness breakfast. The coffee and bread are really good.. I ate some Mexican food, it was spicy, but not to hot. The quality was superb. Service is excellent. Prices are a little bit high, but worth it. Reservation is needed.

A nice restaurant, with a good selection of tradicional Mexican food. In August, do not miss the chiles en nogada season. They are just impressive. For starters, go for the tacos de huitlacoche, the fruits water is delicious as well.

the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for
souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a
bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
