Café de Tacuba: an institution since 1912

cafÉ

In a former 17th-century convent in the historic district of Centro, this café is a must.

With its ancient stained-glass windows, vaulted ceilings, and arches that evoke those of a Palladian villa, Café de Tacuba has the grace of the old mansions of the colonial era.

Mariachi bands and actors in medieval costumes come to serenade you at your table to the delight of tourists, businessmen, and families. In the two large dining rooms, discover all the flavours of traditional Mexican cuisine: enchiladas verdes with chicken in mole sauce, chiles rellenos, and a wide selection of tamales.

Do not miss breakfast at Café de Tacuba, with its surprising egg dishes and pastries accompanied by delicious café con leche y chocolate (latte and chocolate).
