We came here several times for lunch while stating in the area. Service was really good and everything I ate was just right. The price is quite reasonable, and it was lovely sitting outside. They do some nice pastry too.

The staff were nice and answered all the questions we had. Their bread selection is huge and they are all very tasty. Eggs are prepared perfectly. We went there on Sunday without reservation, so it was rather crowded, but we were lucky to be seated...right away. I loved the elephant ear and other sweet bread. They also make good egg dishes too. If you happen to be in Condesa area, I highly recommend you to try this place. When the weather is nice, you can sit outside too.More

I have a feeling I'm going to oversell this place, but of all the places we ate in Mexico City, this is the only place we ate at twice. The pastries are delicious and definitely worth trying. I'm a savory breakfast person though, and that's...where this place shined: the enchiladas were amazing, and the chilaquiles were also fantastic. The coffee was decent, and the service was solid. There was also abundant outdoor seating, which was really nice. If you come here on a weekend, either get there before 10am, or be prepared for a wait.More

A friend who lives in the neighborhood has brought me here for breakfast a few times, and it has always been delicious. I try to order something different every time I come, and it is really hard to do because I always remember how good...the last thing was. However, I manage to do it, and I’m always newly impressed. Yum!More

We went here for an early breakfast the first morning we arrived in Mexico City. We arrived just as it opened and were promptly seated. They immediately offered us a pastry/bread, which was delicious. I highly recommend the Chilaquiles, which I got split with red...and green sauce. Only issue was when I wanted to buy a few pastries for the road, the woman behind the counter didn't understand English or my Spanish, so I was unable to order anything.More

I came with my family 8:15 am. You advertise everywhere even at the door that the opening hour is 8am. They were totally rude and said there was no system. I asked for the manager's name, they answered "Alexander". Horrible experience. It seems that the...employees have taken control of the place and don't follow the rules set.More

I went here for a late breakfast on my first day in CDMX. The coffee was delicious as was my pan de elote. I thought the ambience was charming and the service super helpful (especially since my spanish is poor)

The bread, muffins, cakes are absolutely incredible! Unfortunately I can’t say the same for the food we ordered as that was just normal. Our waiter was obviously having a bad day too! Definitely an amazing place to go for coffee, ice cream, and totally yummy...baked goods! Plus you cannot beat the location which is kitty corner from Parque México which is one of mexico city’s Beautiful parks!More

A treat to sit on the outside tables on weekends; it's right next to very lively Parque Mexico. Pet friendly. Service is efficient and friendly; food is good and prices reasonable. A happy place. Fresh baked sweet breads. And typical Mexican dishes like enchiladas, enfrijoladas,...chilaquiles; well prepared and tasty.More

We arrived just at opening time to see through the window a half dozen bakers preparing the second batch of breakfast pastries for the morning. We walked through the door, and the scent of the bakery told us we were in for something extraordinary. Situated...on the edge of the Parque de Mexico, Maque Cafe is very old school. Waitresses wear ankle-length blue house dresses with white aprons; waiters long-sleeved white shirts with light-brown aprons. The high ceilings and antique chandeliers speak of an era before AC, before cell phones, before TV. Everything is spotless. We split an oreja de chocolate that was one of the best we’ve ever had, buttery crisp, but not too hard, with a hint of chocolate. We ordered huevos rancheros with spicy chorizo and a croissant ham sandwich. The croissants were fresh from the oven. Everything was great, and the total bill came to $32 including two cups of good coffee for each of us. We were advised to arrive early to avoid the lines. On the Saturday morning of our visit, every table was not taken by 8:45, but the place was filling up fast.More

My daughter used to live across the park from Maque. She says it gets VERY busy on weekends. Give it a try, and if it's too busy, check out the Condesa branch of El Péndulo.
