Supposed to open at 11. Waited until 11.40 and the guy inside tells me he will open "in about ten minutes " Tea is served cool usually, pastries are bad and service mediocre.

This little cafe in one of the most beautiful buildings in Roma is across the street from Casa Lamm and adjacent to some very chic little shops in a neighborhood which is in the process of becoming gentrified. A lovely place to select teas from their extensive selection to take home or to stop and sip one in the small... More

Roma
Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even private residences are on beautiful display when walking through Colima street to do some necessary shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch cafés, gourmet restaurants and food markets all around will surely catch your senses by surprise.
