After reading so many raves I felt confident I would find a late afternoon snack to enjoy. The place is adorable, service is fine but the eclair was inedible. The pastry was so tough it was hard to cut and the filling was not pastry cream as described but something dried out with no discernible flavor. I had planned on getting a sandwich for my flight here, but after the eclair didn't bother. What a disappointment.

The brunch here is to die for! Eggs served in sizzling hot skillets, huge freshly squeezed juices - orange, passion fruit, mango, mandarin, carrot - and my favorite is the heavenly french toast. The fresh pastries are exquisite - chocolate filled crossaints and cardamom cinnamon rolls. There are only a few tables outside so arrive early as this place is very popular but definitely worth the wait.

I pass this place almost everyday since it is close to my home.. It has the best croissants, cardamom bread and pastries in mexico city! eggs for breakfast are great! and the servings are large.. coffee is fantastic, and its a vey low key environment. The owner has this beautiful dog that is always hanging out on the sidewalk.. and the waiters are really nice.
I completely recommend it, they always surprise me... i had an addiction to their toffee and croissants for a while...

Delicious food, nice atmosphere, kind attention, healthy food. For a coffee, for lunch or for just having a break. With kids, friends or your couple. It has been the best discover on the last weeks.
