Niddo is a fantastic breakfast option if you’re staying in the Zona Rosa (Mexico City’s historically LGBT neighborhood) and have zero interest in eating at one of the many chains in the area. Actually, it’s a fantastic breakfast option no matter where in the city you’re staying. The small, indoor/outdoor cafe has a tremendous Jewish-leaning menu that includes everything from potato latkes to babka French toast to bagels and lox. The whole place is run by a mother/son team and the seating revolves around the open kitchen where you get to watch them make your breakfast right in front of you. Wait times get long during peak weekend hours, but during the week you’ll be able to walk right in.
