There are actually six El Moros: Centro, Condesa, Alvaro Obregon, Cuauhtémoc, Polanco (in the Palacio de Hierro department store), and in the Mercado Roma. The ones in the fancier neighborhoods are also congenial. There are lots of versions of the chocolate, and even the sugar...More

Deliciously sinful. Mint Hot Chocoloate highly recommended. Filling and satisfying in a cute setting.
