This is a high-end restaurant even though it is situated inside what appears to be a rather nondescript shopping mall. Once inside though there is a pleasant green garden, and you can sit either next to it in a covered gallery, or indoors. The menu features specialties from Veracruz, with an... read more

It is located inside of a cultural center for the state of Veracruz, and is about a 15 minute... More

Staying in Coyoacan

Neighborhood Profile
Coyoacan
Once you step into Coyoacán (“Land of the Coyotes”) you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes and all kinds of traditional 'antojitos' are a must try. Restaurants and cafés throughout its peaceful paved streets contain traditional but unique murals and decorations, where one can enjoy a mezcal at noon or the best churros with a cup of coffee.
