Having a cup of coffee is not a simple thing for many of us. It’s a whole ritual and an opportunity to try new flavors, aromas and test our palates. With the increasing offer of places and types of coffee, it is difficult to decide where to stop for a coffee or where to meet a friend for a chat or simply work a little bit. Of course, company is important, but what better way to chat in a charming place with cozy details.
It’s not just about a pretty place, but about offering a specialty coffee for the most demanding caffeine users. The good thing is that in Mexico City there are hundreds of options where both things are combined. These are the coffeeshops in Mexico City we recommend.
Café de Nadie
A café-bar for music lovers. The place has a collection of more than 1,500 vinyls, a menu of coffee, cocktails and food. We recommend their margaritas and mezcal. If you go for coffee, do not leave without trying the ‘concha’.

A small specialty coffee and brunch spot. They have food only until 4pm, so you can drop in for a delicious coffee (they have their own brand) and then switch to a beer or add some «piquete» (spike) to your coffee. Here we recommend the hashbrown sandwich with eggs and spinach.
