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?
Yume: Adorable shop and cafe all rolled into one! Yume is super accessible by public transportation, but is situated on a quiet side street, and has a huge, open front entrance blurring the line between inside and outside. Come to shop, work, caffeinate, or eat (the pastries always look delicious).
Borola Café Roma: This is a small, and quiet cafe a few blocks from the main action in Roma with great wifi. It's also happens to be the perfect spot for any self-affirmed coffee snobs looking for a barista who knows their way around a chemex, aeropress, or french press. Dogs are also welcomed.
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.
