One of the best places for breakfast in Polanco

This is a good place for breakfast in Polanco. It is a member of a chain founded in Belgium; in my opinión, this one in Polanco is even better than the ones in Brussels. The variety of breakfast bread and dishes is a lot larger and better quality. Service is also very good while in Europe is almost... read more

Although a worldwide chain of restaurants, Le pain quotidien has the advantage of making you feel at a small restaurant in the corner of your neighbourhood. That is the concept that has made its success. Bread, cheese, soup, salads, all seems natural and fresh. With bakeries in 17 countries and more than one hundred cities in five regions, the secret...

Met a friend here for brunch and another for lunch. The quality of the food was okay at best. When you factor in the cost of the meal was not really worth it. Seems like I was paying more to be eating in La condesa. Service both times was average as well. The Orange juice tasted a little stale, and... More

Waiters are friendly and sevice oriented. Love all, serve all attitude! Also has a communal / large shared table, which is nice as well. Great locaton in Polanquito, the heart of... More

We had dinner at Le Pain Quotidien and were really happy with our choice. The concept of the restaurant is to use only organic products. The menu is not extremely long, but still we had a hard time choosing, there were so many delicious plates on the list. The salads are quite big, so even if you are hungry a... More

One of my favorite breakfast spots in Polanquito! Recently expanded, and its still full. Great place for breakfast, coffee, fresh pasties and artisanal breads, people watching, relaxed vibe. Its everything I want my neighborhood bakery/cafe to be.

Waiters take out your wallet while you are eating and then put it back; you wont notice anything different until you check your account. + The place is overrated; dont let the big line fool you. Go somewhere else.

During our Mexico trip, we came to this establishment twice to have breakfast. It has a nice rustic feel to it, both times we received good service (the staff were very friendly and helpful) and the food was delicious. We especially recommend their Beligian Hot Chocolate:-).

We stayed in the Polanco area and I can't even count how many times we walked by this place and I looked at it longingly, but it was always the wrong time of day. This is very much a breakfast place, thought it was busy even late in the evening. We decided to go for breakfast one morning and shared... More
