While brunch is not a native tradition here in Mexico, it’s a meal that is becoming ever-more popular in the younger and trendier circles as more internationals make their way to Mexico City and the residents themselves start to appreciate this in-between snack time. Here are a few of our top brunch places in two of our favorite Mexico City neighborhoods: Roma and Condesa.
Lalo – Roma Norte
Lalo’s long, family-style table invites you to get to know your fellow brunchers! The service is quick and professional and you will never be left with an empty cup of coffee in your hand. Poached eggs, avocado toast, and Lalo’s French toast should all be on your try list. Right across the street from chef Lalo Garcia’s other masterpiece Maximo Bistro, Lalo is a popular spot so you are advised to come before you are hungry to get a seat!
Lalo!, Calle Zacatecas 173, Roma, 06700 Cuauhtémoc, CDMX, 01 55 5564 3388
Eno – Roma Norte
Eno is the new kid on the block in the Roma Norte. Go these days and you will most likely find the place packed on Saturday and Sunday. Their menu has dozens of international and Mexican options like egg-in-a-hole, chilaquiles, French toast, oatmeal and omelettes. The coffee’s not that strong so order a double, and if your stomach is small they offer salads and child-size portions that adults can order.
Eno, Calle de Chihuahua 139, Roma Norte, 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 7576 0918
Huset – Roma Norte
Brunch al fresco is always a pleasure in Mexico City, where it’s rarely below 70 degrees all year round. Huset has a long list of savory and sweet dishes and a kitchen that focuses on using smoke as a main element in their menu, so expect some grilling to be invovled in your brunch. If mimosas, French toast, fried eggs and a good cup of coffee are what you need, Huset might just be your answer.
Huset, Colima 256, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 5511 6767

Ojo de Agua – Condesa
For a healthy take on breakfast try the Ojo de Agua in Condesa, serving up some great traditional Mexican favorites: chilaquiles, enchiladas, molletes and drowned poached eggs. They also have a delicious selection of smoothies, juices and aguas to hydrate while you stuff your face. Here you will find lots of fresh, healthy and seasonal ingredients on the menu.
Ojo de Agua, Calle Citlaltépetl 23C, Cuauhtémoc, Hipódromo, 06100 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 6395 8000
Pan Comido – Roma
Pan Comido may cater to vegans and vegetarians, but its Saturday and Sunday brunch will keep everyone happy. They serve piping hot breakfast burritos with your choice of beans, cheese, soysage, organic eggs, spinach and other delicious veggies as well as breakfast sandwiches and delicious French Press coffee. Top it all off with a vegan cookie from their bakery connected to the restaurant (trust us, they’re delicious!) and your breakfast will be complete. Don’t come starving as there is often a 10-15 minute wait, especially if you want to sit outside and people watch!
Pan Comido, Tonalá 91, Cuauhtémoc, Roma Norte, 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 4398 4366
Delirio – Roma Norte
Monica Patino’s place is a classic in the Roma district, with a brunch for all palates. Dozens of sweets including passionfruit cheesecake, chocolate crossiants and Mexican conchas match up perfectly with a coffee or latte with soy milk from the coffee bar. If you want savory there is a long list of mediterranean-inspired plates like hummus, mixed olives, lamb lasagna and stuffed grape leaves. On the weekends there is a special brunch buffet that includes egg dishes, quiches, roasted potatoes and more.
Delirio, Monterrey 116, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 5584 0870
Condesa DF – Condesa
Condesa DF puts out quite a spread on its beautiful central patio on the border of Colonias Roma and Condesa. The ambiance is half the experience, but the brunch cocktails and smoothies add an additional touch of class. The menu, like the crowd is a mix of local and international with chilaquiles and enchildadas satisfying the need for Mexican flavor and French toast and eggs benedict your yearning for the European.
Condesa DF, Av. Veracruz 102, Roma Nte., 06700 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 5241 2600

Le Pain Quotidien – Condesa
Don’t let its status as a chain restaurant keep you from enjoying brunch at Le Pain Quotidien in Condesa. First of all, the leafy setting on Amsterdam will set the brunch scene nicely. Then the menu with everything from eggs benedict to yogurt with fruit and granola and fluffy crossiants is bound to make any bruncher happy. There are also belgian waffles, salmon tartines, omelettes and a never ending supply of bread with homemade jams and jellies.
Le Pain Quotidien, Avenida Amsterdam 309, Condesa, 06140 Cuauhtémoc, CDMX, +52 01 55 5574 7916
Salicornia – Condesa
The new look of A de Acento is Salicornia, a Baja-med inspired restaurant with a new brunch buffet. While you won’t find many Baja dishes on the brunch menu you will find omelettes, chilaquiles, northern-style burritos with dried beef, and tortas ahogada. The 290p brunch includes any main dish as well as unlimited juices, coffee, sweet breads and fruit. An additional version is avialable with free unlimited mimosas!
Salicornia, Cuernavaca 85, Condesa, 06140 Ciudad de México, CDMX, +52 01 55 5260 4721
