Arrived at 945am on a saturday at port authority& found a taxi immediately.
About $10 and 10 min later we were in the calm of the west village, sitting at
Cafe Condesa with our 13 & 15 yr old kids ordering breakfast. We started with
very acceptable mugs of strong coffee. We ordered french toast w/ fresh berries(made w/ baguette-delicious but a little too much to chew if youre having teeth problems); eggs benedict poblano( hubby loved); ham&cheese croissant w home fry & salad{son loved);
and croissant, yogurt, berries & honey(daughter loved) plus 1 juice & 1 tea. generous portions: $40 plus tip. Thanks to our attentive waiter!
A few steps away from Bleecker St. Quiet & charming escape from the theater dist crowds & great value. In, out, yum.

Tiny bistro with good food cooked on a small stove behind the bar.I have eaten here many times and always had a good dinner. Anyone I've have taken here has also been happy. I don't eat meat so I usually order the salmon or the ravioli. They have a very nice wine selection and the service is usually good. Do not recommend for breakfast.

We were wandering around looking for something to eat and this place caught our eye because it seemed to be kind of a fusion-y food place - plus it had baked brie and you really can't go wrong with that.

We ordered baked brie, hanger steak, bass, a glass of wine(1 glass), a coffee and dessert - all told $70 before tip.
The food was good, the brie was very tasty. The food had some sort of mexican? south american? twist to it with the spices.

One note, the place is tiny. If you are looking for something quiet and cosy it may not be the place, we had a girl behind us spouting off her world view the entire time we were eating! So be warned that you will be part of everyone's conversation whether you want to be or not.

We were wandering around the Village checking out menus posted on windows when we found Cafe Condesa. This is a very small restaurant with only 8 tables and all the cooking is done in sight of the patrons.

My companion had french toast with bacon and both of us agreed the bacon was the best we'd ever had. I had a panini with brie, pesto, spring mix and roasted red peppers. It was wonderful!

The wine list isn't long but there is a good selection. We would highly recommend Cafe Condesa to anyone!

A great hidden find in the west village! The food surprising good and incredibly affordable. Be sure to try the lamb. The striped bass in tomato broth was quite delicious as well. For appetizer, we had the warm brie cheese with baguettes and it was very very good. Highly recommended!
