Cafe Trucha review image

Cafe Trucha

$$$$

Cafe Trucha is more than just a rustic pretty space you might mistake for somewhere in Brooklyn—the small plates are really good and pretty unique for Mexico City. These “picnic tapas,” as they’re called, include standouts like smoked Portuguese sardines with capers, green garlic and radicchio focaccia, and heirloom tomato toasts. This place gets busy at breakfast, when they serve strong coffee made from beans sourced in Chiapas, Mexico (one of the country’s coffee capitals) and freshly baked goodies. But it’s generally a casual spot, so you can bring your laptop in the late morning and enjoy a few hours at one of their outdoor tables while snacking on homemade potato chips, caviar, and crème fraîche.
