Reading Time: 6 minutes

As a coffee addict, I always have a running list of all the coffee spots I want to try. I also love wandering through a city on foot to discover new places. I have prepared a list of my favorite & best coffee shops in Mexico City (D.F.), where you can work in optimal conditions: good food & coffee, good environment, fast WiFi and like minded people.



This hipster cafe, with textured walls and a concrete bar, serves excellent coffee and the best pastries in Mexico City (trust me I am French). The place is cosy, has very chilled vibes and also has tables outside.
You will notice the barista passion when they make your coffee; no matter what to order, they will guide you.

✓ Delicious French pastries, pizza & artisanal bread
✓ Excellent coffee
✓ Good playlist
✓ Friendly staff

It is a place where, in addition to tasting a very good cup of coffee, you can eat well (get the chilaquiles!) and sit down to work or talk in comfort.
This cafe looks quite a classic from the outside, having an eye-catching terrace and a classy interior design.

But, surprise! At the back of the café, you can find a meeting room that can be booked by the hour (pro tip : book online 24 hours in advance), with large tables and comfortable pull-out desk chairs. It feels like you are in a co-working space, within the cosy charm of a small café.

    A mi dosis me encantaba hace años hasta que quitaron los enchufes para cargar las computadoras 🤷‍♀️, y luego l@s meser@s, que eran bastante desagradables, pero quitando eso, podría ser perfecto.
