Excellent place to have a quick and tasty breakfast at. By far the best cafe de olla we had dusting our visit. The staff was very nice and welcoming. They serve pan dulce as well, recommend you try all of it. Great place overall!!

It is very common in Coyoacan to have ordinary meals which are overpriced. In this restaurant you will have meals with a over-the-average standard with a fair price. This place is a small house. I believe it is only half of a house. It is...More

Lovely little place with a small menu. I ordered sopes with frijoles and was satisfied. For a place that prominently declares 'slow food' principles on its menu I was surprised to feel a little bit rushed to pay. Still, for its location, prices and menu,...More

This small restaurant is right down the street from the Museo Frida Kahlo. The pastries are delicious, and there were several customers who came in just to pick up desserts. The menu is small, but we thought the soup and the steak were very good....More

We had a delicious, quality lunch here within a three-block walk from the Khalo and Trotsky museums. Wholesome home-cooking is the forte. Specials appear to vary daily to assure the freshness of local ingredients. Healthy lentil soup and a delicate chicken broth soup; we enjoyed...More

I had breakfast there with other 3 friends and most likely one of their ingredients were rotten, we now have stomach issues. Presentation of their dishes are not the best. Corn bread is great though. I remember 10-15 years ago was an absolute delight to...More

This is a very nice little restaurant. If you go to Cineteca Nacional or Frida Kahlo museum you can consider eating here, it's very near walking. The main problem is that it can be crowded because there are not many tables so I suggest taking...More

Our family ate here before heading to the museum and as traditional Mexican food goes, it was good. Excellent salsas and a variety for everyone at reasonable prices. Tip- bread is not a free appetizer. You are charged what you eat.

I have been living in Mexico City for seven years and I have been going to La Vienet over and over. They offer a daily menu for less than 8-10 US$, depending of exchange rate and they also have fantastic breakfast.

La Vienet offers Mexican food that people from the Capital use to have for breakfast. Foreigners can enjoy tipical meals because they are not spicy. It is not expensive and the home cooking is tasty. My only concern is that tables are so close that...More

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
