I love a slow breakfast on a day when I don't have much to do. These two listed below are a snippet from my recently released guidebook about two neighborhoods in Mexico City. Hope you enjoy them!
Monica Patiño has two small restaurants in la Colonia Roma. Her food feels both local and international, in all the best ways. While her ingredients are distinctly Mexican, sourced from local producers and farmers, she makes food that is both incredibly familiar and original. I make it a point to stop by here for an afternoon light, fruit filled pavlova and cappuccino on a day walking around, and then stay to read the paper and pick up some gifts for friends. Come here for a slow breakfast and enjoy the huevos griegos. Or, come in the afternoon for a little shopping and a pavlova.
Restaurante (Restaurant and Café)
Abarrotes (Shop and Café)
This place has the best croissants in the city. It’s a tiny bakery and you have to crouch to get in. Grab a seat at the bar, bring a friend and settle in for a meal or a quick snack in this intimate and high-quality bakery. Known for their cardamom roll, this tiny bakery is a great place for lunch or coffee while you’re out poking into the shops and galleries dotting Colima. They also have an excellent, albeit expensive, restaurant just down the block, and recently opened another bakery in colonia Juarez.
