It is a well known fact that I love coffee, and am always looking for a good excuse to try out new coffee spots and cafes, and there is no better excuse than moving to a new city! Consider this post your ultimate guide to staying caffeinated, finding a great place to get some work done, or to discovering your new favorite afternoon break scene.
I've divided the map into three price categories:
$$$ - expect to pay prices similar to what you are used to at home.
$$ - a little expensive for Mexican standards, but won't break the bank.
$ - my kind of price!
Remember to keep coming back to this post. I will continue to update it as I also discover new places, and will make sure to always highlight a few of my favorites.
So where am I loving right now?
Boicot Café: Still one of my absolute favorites! You can't go wrong with lots of table space, great wifi, delicious food, and some of the best cold brew in town.
Cicatriz: Cafe by day, and bar by night, Cicatriz has become one of my new go tos. The space can fill up around lunch time, but during any other time of day, you can spend hours here without feeling guilty. Huge bonus? Every table gets a wine bottle of water, so no need to lug your heavy water bottle with you.
Otro Cafe Anzures: Anzures is a smaller residential neighborhood wedged between Polanco and Cuauhatemoc, which you could easily miss. However, I would recommend a trip for a relaxed lunch or snack at Otro Cafe, which isn't too far from parts of Chapultepec Park. The coffee is reasonably prices, and there is a full food menu.
