We went for a snack and coffee. Coffee was the best in Mexico City and the croissants with ham and cheese are so tasty! Hot chocolate is good as well.

This not-too-well-known and quite hidden café in the heart of Mexico City's downtown serves the best (and STRONGEST!!) coffee in town.

I didn't realize there was more than one. They are in beautiful old buildings, very atmospheric. I either had a cappuccino or a cafe con leche. All excellent.

I'd heard about this place from visitors to El Hequito and happened to be in the neighbourhood and needed coffee. Tried an espresso before buying coffee to take home and it was quite good and well prepared but by an indifferent/unfriendly barista. I decided to buy some anyway but was quite put off by how unfriendly the staff were throughout.

I still have dreams of my espresso at this little, active spot! One of the best I have ever had. If you need a pick-me-up in the midst of "foodieville"-- the San Juan market is just down the street-- this is the *only* place to head. I stupidly did not buy beans to bring home.... next time!

Thank skeeter55

Neighbourhood Profile
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now 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 sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
