Munch on a Classic Breakfast at El Cardenal

El Cardenal
Palma #23
Mexico City, MX 10000

This tourist trap is worth the wait for its classic Mexican breakfasts of conchas, natas and hot chocolate served on starched white tablecloths. The conchas, which means "conch" in Spanish, are sugary yeasted bread, among the best in the city here, made even better with a luxurious spoonful of natas, cold clotted cream. The hot chocolate, frothed with a traditional wooden molinillo and poured from a height, rounds out the experience. There's an elevator to the second floor and beautiful stained-glass windows.
