  • oh mean a beutiful mexican place to have a good lunch, awesome food and enviroment
  • Is a very clean and nice restaurant to try some of the Mexican fares. The restaurant t is a staple in Mexico and not a bad place to drop by after or before a trip to the Palacio de Bellas Artes. The service is courteous and the food is clean and prices are bit more that street food but the restaurant is well managed by staff. The only thing I noticed which I could not understand is why the actual dish served was not like it appears in the picture of their menu. When asked, I was assured it was the same dish when I know the main ingredient, cow's tongue, was the only thing that came with the dish but anything else was not. So don't be shock that the plate being served does not resemble the dish in display in the menu. Some ingredients may be substituted by something else.
  • This beautiful and historic building is amazing. It was a private 'palace' built by a wealthy family in the 18th century. So different to what you see in modern cities. The façade of Puebla tiles is simple gorgeous and the interior is lovely also. Enjoy the view, people-watch and eat very well in the Sanborns Cafe.
  • a must do in mexico city. and you can enjoy a coffee with the piano music in the background inside the building
  • Deliciosos desayunos
