Craft Bakery & Café
Azúcar y Sal2
Why locals love it
Located in the city centre, close to one of the main avenues (Paseo de la Reforma) you would think they have horrifying prices. Well, luckily that's not even close to the truth. I go almost every day (it's a few steps away from where I work) and buy my Cafe Latte for only $25 MXN (about $1.60 USD). The staff is very nice and helpful as well.
Why you should visit it
They have a big variety of "pan" (bakery goods), cakes, juices, delicious coffee, and in case you get hungry around lunchtime, their salads and pastas will make it worth entering too. At first sight it might look like a simple bakery but you should definitely go and discover what it can offer.
As there is no metro station nearby you need to walk a little. Either walking from Metro Cuauhtémoc or from Reforma, you'll enjoy the journey.
