The 10 Best Brunch Spots In Guadalajara, Mexico

Lauren Cocking

Guadalajara is often considered one of the most traditionally Mexican of the big three Mexican metropolises. There’s a vast amount to see and do, but you will never feel rushed in this relaxed city, so why not take some time out for a lazy brunch in one of our top 10 brunch spots?

Ex-Convento del Carmen



Chai is a favorite among locals, but particularly among foreigners. With several different locations throughout Guadalajara, the one located in the cute courtyard opposite the Ex-Convento del Carmen is one of the most attractive. Most definitely the perfect spot for brunch, Chai offers well priced and basic favorites, such as pastas and sandwiches, but also has excellent (and namesake) Chai frappes in several flavors.

Piggy Back

This pastel-hued, hidden-away café is a truly fantastic brunch option in Guadalajara’s Colonia Americana. Filled with white furniture and woven chairs, Piggy Back is super small, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in flavor and attention to detail. The brunches here are fabulous.

Boulangerie Central

Boulangerie Central
With a recently updated menu featuring delights such as tostadas del bosque (thickly sliced and toasted bread, topped with cottage cheese, blueberry compote, and crystallized ginger) Boulangerie Central is an absolute gem of a find for brunch in Guadalajara. Also a bakery, this spacious and pretty brunch spot will treat you to the scent of freshly baked treats that wafts through.

This quirky café is essentially a hole in the wall establishment, with a brightly painted zigzag dominating the interior wall, which is covered in framed photos. A mismatch of chairs, tables, and bar stools fill the interior, making it a great place for a casual brunch.


Restaurant, Mexican

Suculenta is a vegetarian and vegan restaurant which would make the perfect location for brunch if you have more specific dietary requirements or preferences. Try the fruit parfait which includes quinoa granola and toasted coconut if you want something nice and light to start the day with, or perhaps you’d prefer something a little more filling? In that case, we recommend one of their tortas. Every item is well considered, and most importantly delicious and inventive, for example, tacos made from the skin of plantain.

La Tetería

La Tetería

Literally translating to “teapot,” La Tetería is the perfect place to swing by for brunch if you coffee lovers come accompanied by tea drinkers too, as you’ll find both served here in this cute little café. Don’t miss the chance to try the frappe options, which range from chai to mint chocolate flavors. The décor is minimalist, with comfortable sofa style seats indoors, and rustic wooden tables and chairs in the quaint patio area. Chalkboard walls provide information about prices and offers.

Los Arrayanes

Los Arrayanes

Located in a sprawling house with a beautiful open air patio in the middle, Los Arrayanes is located in an incredibly attractive space and one which makes it ideal for a relaxing brunch with friends. The verdant plants that are dotted all around the patio complement the green and white coloured furniture.

Only open on the weekdays, Ginger is a healthy little café that also offers home delivery, just in case you’re not feeling up to even leaving the house for your brunch. Indulge in a decadent stack of hotcakes, topped with sliced banana and drizzled liberally in maple syrup. Ginger is a fresh, minimalist place with a brightly colored and attractive chalkboard which outlines the dishes on offer.

Venezuela 776, Guadalajara, Mexico, +52 33 3631 9447



Recently opened Becada is a sleek set up located in Guadalajara with neon lettering adorning the clean white walls and minimal furniture. Fresh floral sprigs make up the centerpiece of each table, and the design touches are second to none. Brunch on exquisitely presented fresh fruit platters and expertly prepared coffee, or perhaps try out the croissant sandwiches.

Cafeto is a great brunch option, especially as they have multiple locations across Guadalajara. With a range of standard Mexican dishes to choose from, you know where you stand at this large, modern café. If you don’t want too much cheese, try the bread topped with jam instead, and enjoy all of these delights in the attractive semi-covered patio area.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
