Loved the selection of fruit available. Great choice for a light and healthy breakfast if you've been over indulging on all the great food in Mexico City.

A Mexican friend dragged me, screaming and kicking, to this little joint. Once I tried the product I was hooked. I've had the tropical fruit juices in Rio and very good they are too but this is even better. It's also dirt cheap. Try the coconut, strawberry and passion fruit mix. Just across the road is a supermarket where you can stock up on canned salsa and jalapeños to take back to your home country.

Ciudad de Colima is a great store for all kinds of fresh juices and smoothies. Located near the metro stop in Polanco, they also make fresh fruit salads with yogurt. Their list of juice combinations is mesmerizing; take your time to consider each option as you stand by the counter. Not a full restaurant, it's designed for take away. Stop by on the weekend and fill up your own containers or buy their bottles with the snappy yellow caps.

Located in the swish suburb of Polanco, this place seems to be a local favourite. I had a number of taxi drivers and hotel staff recommend it to me, and every time I visited, there seemed to be a steady stream of locals who knew the staff by name.

It's run by Jorge and Gaby, two young and friendly English-speakers hailing from the same Mexico City family. They are both incredibly friendly and will often invite you to try the various exotic Mexican fruits, nuts and juices before buying them.

The place doubles as both a fruit shop and a fruit juice/smoothie bar. The fruit juices/smoothies are the highlight. The menu is huge (see photo), and you can also just create your own combinations. Possible ingredients include the standard fruits you'd expect (banana, mango etc), but also a few interesting ones, including cactus.

If you're feeling adventurous you can also try their Mexican-style mango. It's a fresh mango cut-up and served in a take-away container, with lime juice, chilli and salt sprinkled over it. Might sound odd, but it's quite addictive.

If you're going to visit Polanco (recommended), then this place is a must-try. It's a real Mexican experience which you won't find in the guidebooks.

I had a smoothie from this shop nearly everyday I was in Mexico City. Ciudad de Colima is a clean and friendly fruit shop that also has a juice bar. There is an extensive juice and smoothie menu or you can make up your own blend. They also make delicious fruit salads. Jorge and Gabbi speak great English (which was such a relief as my Spanish is very limited!). They were always very welcoming and were able to answer all my food, tourist and Spanish vocab questions. A drink from this shop is the perfect way to begin or end a day of sight seeing. It is very close to the Polanco Metro station.
