I know it's just a chain but the perfect chillout place on a cute little square, nice and quiet, free wifi, great food and beer. Found it by accident and came back every day for a beer and the wifi. Just a lovely place to stop and take a break. ..birds singing away and lovely staff

So surprised at how very few pavement bar/cafe/restaurants in tis very touristy area. So although we realised this was a basic chain we sat down for a bucket of beers. Cannot fault anything and the price suited the quality. Excellent service. But for a step up the culinary ladder try Los Garisoles next door.

You would imagine that there were many bars and cafes with pavement tables and service in the central Tacuba area of Mexico City. There aren't. But with their crazy road and sidewalk habits, there should be. We spent about one hour looking until we found the very mundane, but very polite and very efficient Taco Inn. Whilst we drank our...

As a food chain they don´t seem to be eager to make proper tacos. I definitely prefer El Califa, which is pricey but it´s worth it.

This food is simple but good and affordable. We had a taco sampler for two plus hibiscus water to drink. It was tasty but nothing more. We spent about 15 USD. We ate outside. It is well located next to the National Museum.

This cafe is reasonably priced, pleasant and the food was fine, basic stuff in Mexico, and we were happy. I asked for a substitution and got it, no problem. We ate and drank non-alcohol for about US $8 each. Perfect for lunch.

Good typical food, with a mariachi band for atmosphere. Ask to see the upstairs too. There are stories of a ghost.

Not as good as street food. This little chain is trying hard and the staff were sweet but the food was boring and really just not very good. If you want some real tacos, just walk toward the zocalo to Tacos Canasta Los Especiales, or any of the delicious taco joints. Or, better yet, get some tlacoyos from a vendor... More

We had a couple of hours before a show at the "Bellas Artes" and decide to eat at the Taco Inn. It's just a block away on Tacuba Street. The place was full. Their prices seemed average. They have beautiful views of the old downtown buildings. They do have their kitchen in the same area as the restaurant, so that... More

Located just off the plaza facing the National Museum of Art, grab a table under an umbrella on the patio, munch on some Mexican comfort food and watch the throng on parade.

Staying in Alameda

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
