Bit of a different place - a French bistro. Can't miss for breakfast, pastries and coffees. Always clean and fresh - and busy!

We popped in to grab a quick croissant and coffee at the recommendation of the valet guy at the hotel. Street parking was easy nearby on Sunday morning and the place was busy by 10am. Pastries and coffee (good espresso drinks) for two for a little over 100 pesos.

Chez Celine is a very nice breakfast place with a great offer from continental to more fancy breakfast combos. Authentic French flair comes from the French owner. I have not tried the cake and pastries but it looked good.

Cute little patisserie, clean and welcoming, with friendly employees. Get the pan de chocolate (chocolate croissant), you won't regret it! All of their pastries are delicious as well :)

Simply delicious, comfort food! The best sandwich is Brie with grapes & pecan nuts. Also try their crepes, 3 cheese Croque Madame, Pain au chocolat, their pastries and pattiserie are unique!

Its a proper french patisserie on the edge of Mexico. How cute is that. But please don't go in expecting authentic Parisian flavors, its more like a local twist on classics because all the base ingredients are from a different world of course. Fruit Tart was pretty good but the Eclairs were just ok. Overall its a very cute break... More

Chez Celine attracts a huge crowd and is considered by some as the best coffee snack joint. But the food is average and staff non-attentive. There is a better place just across the street!
