A most to visit while in Mexico City. Just baked bread, fresh coffee, natural real fresh juices and traditional style meals without chili in all despite you order. Reasonable prices Full breakfast for two 550 mxp with average. I will come back

I thought the food was terrible! They don’t even have a quesadilla or even a bean burrito! They don’t accommodate to children or people with food allergies! Way to expensive!

A typical México restaurant nestled in a large old house. The place was pretty full but we managed to get a table in the quieter upstairs room. My wife opted for fish fried in garlic. Good but rather overwhelming if I had not had some...More
