We were here for hoooours. The bookstore is very big and has tons of different stuff - you can certainly spend upwards of 1 hour browsing. Then they have a cute cafe that serves breakfast/lunch/drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and we must have been there for another 2-3 hours. They let you sit and read and order and it was just such a nice experience! They have outdoor seating, too, so if the day is bright and sunny it's great to sit out.

....if only the food were better. The bookstore is fun, with great variety, classics, quirky and many Mexican gems. I highly recommend the bookstore while the restaurant is more for a coffee and a snack. A great plan
ce to hang out for a few hours....

Visited for Sunday brunch. Was fairly empty at 9.30 am but quickly filled up over the next one hour. Good food and coffee. Great collection of books and stationary. Picked up some coloring books from the first floor. Live music on Sundays. Love the ambience. Must visit when you are in Mexico City! What a find.

We had called in the night before to check out the breakfast menu so when we arrived the next day we were greeted with gusto and immediately given an English menu.

Awesome atmosphere being in a bookstore.

The staff were fantastic but one item did get lost in translation. Not a biggy.

We’ll be gong back for dinner tonight!
