Great coffee and bread, just make sure you order the right type of coffee because some items we fond quite watery or bland (yet of high quality), United States/Starbucks style which will disappoint visitors from northern Europe.

i was not too impressed by their award winning latte, but their natilla con espresso (custard with espresso) was to die for! i've never tried this combination before, & what a combination it was! the custard was silky & not too sweet, went very well with the smooth, rich espresso. served cold. basic english spoken, friendly service.

If what you're looking for is a excellent value for money, Café Passmar is the best choice. Located in a traditional mexican Market, you'll find top quality coffee with expert baristas preparing it. My favourite is one of the specialties: Alelis Berries Coffee.

The quality of the coffee in this place makes you put up with the lack of ambiance.

The flavor and the latte art are just unparalleled in Mexico City, even in the whole country.

As a note: Mexico's coffee-brewing culture lags it's richness in terms of the beans. Mexican traditional coffee (cafe de olla) is undrinkable - boiled coffee with sugar! argh. Some places in Mexico are so oblivious of the proper way to fix a cappuccino (for example) that they use condensed milk to prepare it. Cafe Passmar is a Coffee-Lovers-Oasis in Mexico City. His Owner Salvador Benitez is a true student of the right way to make a damn good cup of coffee.

Do not miss it. It is in the center of the Farmers Market of Colonia del Valle. Right below the back of the Mexicana Airlines Tower Building.

This is not a place where you go to enjoy the atmosphere ( it is very hot and small) or have a quick service. You simply go to sip one of the best coffees ever. In other words this is a place for coffee lovers.
They also have a bunch of herbal teas, bubble teas, smoothies, and frappes.

I had the natilla (imagine a coffee creme brulee) first, since everybody says is great (and it is) and after I ordered a capuccino to go. It needed a bit more temperature for my taste, but lovely flavor.

Just so you know Passmar is located far from the touristic attractions, I took the metro and two buses to get there, but I founded worth it!
