it can feel a little touristy--and the prices can feel steep. And hey--it turns 100 next year!

Try the lemonade, it's amazing! The enchiladas were great, I'm a particular fan of the Tacuba style!

A local favorite. Almost every local who considers themselves upper middle class and has great taste recommended Cafe Tacuba. I personally had a hard time distinguishing it with other fine restaurants because I am not too familiar with authentic Mexican dishes. But, I HIGHLY recommend the Chiles de Nogada, the national dish that is served around Mexican Independence Day. It is sweet is extremely delicious.

The mariachi band playing at dinner was splendid as well.

This is a gorgeous restaurant which was first open in 1912. Beautiful tiles, lamps, paintings create the perfect environment to eat some fabulous Mexican dishes, including antojitos, tacos and gorditas.

Very classical Mexican decoration and menu. Food is good but overrated.

One of the best places in the city for a classic Mexican breakfast.

After seeing the long line at Cardenal, we ended up here and did not regret it! A great spot for traditional Mexican breakfast. The food is excellent. I didn't know pan dulce could be that good. If you're like me and had a revelation when you tried your first croissant in France, it was the same feeling here. Breakfast will run you about $15 USD pp.
