Restaurant

“I love this spot for its great pastry, particularly the croissants and the Guava roll (you can´t miss this one). I like to bring my book or grab a newspaper and sit for hours at the bar. You can also get take-away from the little window on the curb. Some dishes on the menu are experimental, using always the best quality ingredients.”

Neighbourhood
“Colorful Roma is the hipster heart of Mexico City. Just west of Centro Historico and hugging the eastern edge of the Condesa neighborhood, Roma is the perfect place to stay in if you’re looking to shop at cute boutiques, sip incredibly good coffee, and enjoy close proximity to many of Mexico City’s biggest attractions. Originally a neighborhood for Mexico City’s upper-class, Roma fell on hard times after the 1985 earthquake. Happily, the neighborhood has enjoyed a recent renaissance—locals love Roma’s combination of art deco mansions, colorful street art, and, of course, the neighborhood’s hipster vibe. Most of Mexico City is safe, and Roma is considered one of the safest neighborhoods in town. ”

“If you love seafood, this fish taco spot is just 2 blocks from Casa Gubidxa! Although the menu is limited to shrimp, marlin, and fried fish, it is all delicious. With a buffet-style assortment of salsas and toppings, the tacos are delicious. Be aware however, lines often form outside and the place shuts down by around 4-5pm every day!”
