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: Guys, I have finally achieved "regular" status somewhere! Well, at least partially. I have now been to Boicot enough times that one of the baristas recognizes me, and knows that I only ever order a cold brew with almond milk, or a regular cappuccino. But seriously, this is my favorite place to work. The wifi is strong, the tables are large, and there is always a seat.
Brown Caffeine Lab: This tiny coffee shop in Roma Sur has found the sweet spot between good "hipster" coffee and low-key neighborhood vibes. Whether you are looking for an afternoon pick-me-up, and chill spot to work (they have great wifi), or a great place to read the morning paper, Brown has something for everyone.
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.
