Quirky Condesa is one of Mexico City’s coolest hangouts and a neighborhood that is well worth the time to explore during any visit to Mexico City. Leafy streets, with loads of Art Deco and Art Nouveau architecture, it’s perfect for lovers of style and culture. Replete with ever-changing hot-spots and the city’s young and fashionable, Condesa is one of the best places in the city to enjoy a lazy brunch.
Well-known Condesa hotel, the aptly named Condesa DF, is renowned for its Sunday brunches which include unusual and delightful ingredients. Accompany the variety of dishes on offer, from appetizers, salads, and the inventive main courses (have you ever had a green risotto with fava beans for brunch), with a refreshing mimosa and indulge yourself in sleek, modern surroundings. One of the most unmissable aspects of Condesa DF is their awesome rooftop terrace which you should try and take advantage of before leaving.

Not just one of the best brunch spots in Condesa, but one of the best in Mexico City as a whole, Qué Sería de Mí is a delightful and highly recommended hole-in-the-wall spot with delicious dining options. Check out the blueberry and ricotta pancakes, and beautifully prepared chilaquiles, accompanied by a freshly made juice. To guarantee a table in this tiny, cozy spot you must be sure to arrive early or be prepared to wait as it has a very small capacity for dine-in customers. It’s charming and well worth the effort though.

Brooklyn style dining in the heart of Condesa comes in the form of Peltre, a chic café in the heart of Condesa, owned by Chef Daniel Ovadia. While their aesthetic and vibe may scream ‘Brooklyn,’ their food screams ‘Mexico.’ Try their soft, squishy, mouth-watering tortas, or tuck into a pan dulce or pastry, but don’t forget to accompany your breakfast with one of their Mexican coffees. Due to the variety in the menu at Peltre, you can really fill up for your day ahead, or simply take it easy with a light brunch and creamy chai latte.
