The Best Coffee Shops in Mexico City
The best places to get a coffee and pastry and people watch. Because nothing is better than that. ☕️

The great thing about Mexico City is that you can go get a coffee at 9 pm. There’s no such thing as a coffee shop that closes at 4 pm. It’s not hard to find cute coffee shops in Mexico City, but I did have a few that I frequented.

My Favorite Coffee Shops

Chiquitito Café
@sandysanchez
My favorite coffee shop in Mexico City. Get their signature ‘Chiquitito Cafe’ if you like your coffee sweet. They also have the best chai latte. And if you’re hungry, get one of their sandwiches. The cafe is small (hence the name), but if you can find a table outside, it’s a great place to work or read.

Cucurucho Condesa
@sandysanchez
This is another great place. If you like horchata, you need to try the horchata espresso. The banana bread is also incredible.

Qūentin Café
@sandysanchez
This is a great, cozy place to come and talk with friends. There are tables outside as well as a tiny nook in the back of the coffee shop if you want to get some work done. The coffee and bread are delicious here. Get the concha and matcha latte.

One of my favorite places to go and work! All of their locations were very spacious with lots of seating. Their chai latte is also pretty great. 😌

CUMBÉ Coffee Roasters
@sandysanchez
This place is pretty low-key. The lavender chai latte is a must and their pastries are nice and fluffy. They also have a little plant shop in the back.

Blom Café

Small, quaint cafe on the cutest street. They have an amazing chai latte and have oat milk as an option which is sometimes hard to find in CDMX coffee shops!

Panadería Rosetta
@sandysanchez
This is a popular spot and I 100% get it. The guava roll and cinnamon roll are unbelievably delicious. Their sandwiches are also great. And if you’re in Mexico City for a little while and plan on doing some cooking, I recommend getting their sourdough, pesto, parmigiano reggiano, and fresh pasta. They also do free delivery if you’re around the area. If you don’t want to wait around for a table, I recommend getting your pastries to go and walk over to Plaza Río de Janeiro, sit on a bench, people watch, and eat your pastry. Check out their sister cafe, Café Nin.

This place is amazing! So much seating both indoors and outdoors. There’s good internet and a nice ambiance. If you’re hungry, there’s also some light bites.

This is technically a tea spot but I had to include it. They have so many good tea options and the best carrot cake!

FORTUNATA CAFÉ

If you’re having a Coyoacan day, I highly recommend stopping by here. It’s gorgeous and on a nice quiet street. The coffee is great but there’s also lots of food options for breakfast or lunch!

Tea Connection
@sandysanchez
They have a great selection of teas and the best part is that they’re open late, so this was a go-to for me when I wanted a relaxing night.

Books and coffee, what more could you want? It’s a cute little spot to read, do so some work, order a coffee, and browse some books.

Toscano
@sandysanchez
They’re open all day but I loved coming here for a afternoon juice, coffee, and some appetizers. They’ve got a few locations but this is the best one because you get a great view of the park.
