Lovely design museum, but small

Small design museum located close to the Zocalo. The gift shop is nice and is probably equal in space to the museum, ha! Gift shop prices are pretty high, but it's well-designed... read more

My family and I visited the cafe twice during our stay in Mexico city recently. The food was excellent, showing a bit of creative flair, and for incredibly good prices. I had the enchiladas suizas and the enfrijoladas. The cafe is clearly trendy and interesting, with lots of artwork (all of it depicting the conquering of death) hanging around you.... More

Small design museum located close to the Zocalo. The gift shop is nice and is probably equal in space to the museum, ha! Gift shop prices are pretty high, but it's well-designed stuff. Exhibit was a poster contest on the theme "Death with a Smile." Lots of entries and many were wonderfully executed. You must go with a guide for... More

We loved the displays, shop and food and visited a few times during our visit. It is small but still worth a visit. The display of 'Dia De Los Muertos' posters were fabulous during our visit and the shop has lots of interesting little items. The food was delicious and clearly freshly cooked to order. Stop for a meal of... More

Stopped in for a snack after walking on sunday down by the cathedral. What a gem. If you want healthy or veggie options stop here. And if you want fries they have them also. Great background music. Food was outstanding. Recommend the green salad and the fruit plate. Portions are nice sized. Staff is attentive. Would go back. Cute gift... More

This colonial building was restored and adapted for Mexican designers expositions. It's small but with great expos. You need to taste the coffee at cafeteria.

The Snoopy exposition was interesting but rather small. The place is nice. It also has a cafeteria and a shop with design related products. Worth to visit if you have already visited the major sites in the area.

We visited at night only in the restaurant for non-standard desserts and coffee, all of which were excellent. It turned out to be a welcome refuge from the endless zombie-like (ironic?) wandering of tourists on the pedestrian walkways near the Zocalo. A great looking place: hip, contemporary, dead--yet still comfortable.

Just came back from the opening night of a collective jewelry design showcase where a friend participated. The place is very interesting and the exposition was carefully curated. I had the chance to meet the chef of the cafeteria, Martín Vázquez as he described his mini dishes that were served at the reception, excellent cooking! What a flavorful explosion in... More

We were walking on Madero pedestrian street when we almost go to the Zocalo we found a great place to buy special design gifts. Contemporary design inside a very old building, great food at a very low price. Must visit!!!!!

Staying in Centro Historico

Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays.
