El Cardenal

Perfect For: Breakfast

This place serves arguably the best breakfast in the city, in the midst of Centro Historico, a block away from el Zocalo. Before looking at the menu, go ahead and order the nata, which is clotted cream, created from boiling raw milk. Pair it with a concha, a soft sweet pastry bread with a sugar crust. Think of this combo as your breakfast appetizer. Then go crazy with chilaquiles, enchiladas, poached eggs in clay pots, and omelettes with ingredients you’ve probably never heard of. Best to get here early unless you’re well prepared to wait.
