Sweat nice corn bread!!!

This place is really nice. Is like an on fashion 80's house situated in one of the most longest streets in Mexico City, where we can consider is a business area (as they all come dressed). Their specialty is definitely the 'corn bread'. Spongy, sweat and warm city bread just baked. The service is... read more

The Ensalada Saks is excellent...the linguine fra diavolo is consistently good. All of the Mexican dishes are executed quite well. The selection of wines is excellent, and the desserts are wonderful.

The food and service were better some years ago. We went to try the "chiles en nogada" a special dish for the patriotic september month. That were just good but no delicious. The Red Snapper was not very fresh. Wine is a little bit pricey. There is a service charge per person but the bread and humus is very good.

I had heard that this was a great place for breakfast, but I found the food to be disappointing. This is especially true when one considers the price. True, they do have vegetarian items, and "interesting" combinations, but the preparation is not very good, e.g. items are served cold, or overcooked, or undercooked. Their naturally prepared juices are the only... More

I love this restaurant. It's always been among my favorite. I have been going there for over fifteen years. It has an unexpected medieval feel and several vegetarian options.

It is a very good option if you are looking for a nice restaurant with a great selection for vegeterians. They serve very good breakfast, on a weekend I sugest getting there early because it gets very crowded after 11am.

Went here for brunch on a Sunday and the place was packed. The food and service were wonderful and even though the place was mad busy we got the best of attention. The dessert cart is to die for. Wonderfully airy surroundings and great atmosphere.
