Went there for breakfast, slow service but great food. We had some chilaquiles and a skillet with oaxaca cheese, eggs and salsas cooked in a brick oven. The skillet was amazing, chilaquiles were ordinary. Not many people but waitress was slow, had to ask for our drinks 3 times over a 15 min period. Will be back though

The location is nice because it is in Cibeles fountain. There are no tables inside so you necessarily have to seat outside, which is nice if the weather is good. The espresso was burned, which is unacceptable. The price was good, less than a dollar for the espresso but it doesn't worth.

My wife and I stopped at the Cibeles location and we both had the vegetarian sandwich. You can only sit outside, but it's located in a wonderful area. Service was good and the sandwiches were great!

Honestly, I have not idea why this place is so crowded. Maybe the location. I know that I was not mistaken, the food is below average. The quality of the ingredients leave huge room for improvement. Therefor the taste and the final product is not good. Service is also something they must not be proud of.

Excellent breakfasts with eggs baked in the oven in small iron frying pans which is great on those cool Mexico City mornings. Good coffee too. Eclectic music (not live) but different, which I happened to like. Cute spot in San Miguel Chapultepec.

The eggs are deliciously prepared on the oven, bread is great, coffee and juices are good! Overall is a great experience because it is a terrace (besides the Glorieta Cibeles). The name comes from the way the place is located. It is a "ventanita" literally a tiny window where they take orders and dispatch. The tables are not inside the... More

This place literally takes you away to another place outside the rush of Mexico City, a really good place. It's located in front of Cibeles Fountain, outdoor seating is a must, coffee and tea infusions are awesome, the eggs are cooked on a skillet inside a wood oven. Everything is delicious, but try the Chipotle Eggs, Chai Latte, Green Juice... More

I have been surprised with the poor quality of many of the coffee places in Mexico City. I have found the coffee to be weak and lacking flavor. This place however, is not one of them. I ran into this charming walk-up coffee window while waiting with some tourist friends for the Turibus. The service was quick and the cappuccino... More
