Mexico City has great coffee to offer. Here a few neighborhoody-coffee houses, that were a pleasure to visit and take a nice time-out.
Cafe Toscano (everyone calls it 'el café ILLY' ) in La Condesa / Coffee house in Polanco Cafe Solo con Dios, San Angel. Is that lady a retired celebrity? I wouldn't know Coffee, a place to chat and art, great mix. A hidden gem in the midst of heavy traffic. Cafe del Centro, Historic Center area.
