Cafe Trucha is cute looking space you might mistake for somewhere in Brooklyn. The small plates are really good, and pretty unique for Mexico City—the “picnic tapas,” as they’re called, include things like smoked Portuguese sardines with capers, green garlic and radicchio focaccia, and heirloom tomato toasts. It gets busy at breakfast, when they serve strong coffee made from beans sourced in Chiapas (one of the Mexico’s coffee capitals) and freshly baked goods. Even still, 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.
