Sunday Brunch in Mexico city.

Hello everyone.

Where I can have the best Sunday Brunch in Mexico city...
I heard some good comments about the one at the Four seasons.

Please let me know your comments, what kind of food they offer and also the average price.

Thanks for sharing and for taking the time to post in this thread.

  1. For a SATURDAY brunch of typical Mexican breakfast foods, you might want to try Fonda San Ángel on Plaza Jacinta in San Ángel. The available dishes are plentiful and include fresh seasonal fruits, fresh pan dulce of all kinds, pozole, six or eight guisados (prepared meat and egg dishes) served from big clay cazuelas, quesadillas and eggs prepared to order, yoghurt with honey and cereal, and a host of other choices. The covered terrace is beautiful, the interior rooms are spacious and attractive, and you'll be able to shop the Bazar San Ángel when you finish your meal.

    I know this is a Saturday brunch rather than the Sunday brunch you requested, but you might well enjoy the difference.

            On Maximo's - well earned vacation for the owner and his wife started yesterday Sunday .
            They will be closed for about 10 to 12 days ... its Mexico so reopen date hasn't been set yet.
            Here is their link

            Here's a Summer 2013 update. Maximo does offer a fantastic brunch the first sunday of every month. They do offer the best french toast in town and the rest of the fare changes every brunch. If you see the quiche, it is the best I have ever had.

        2. The Four Seasons has an amazing brunch, they'll even grill fish, shrimp or steaks on the grill in the courtyard for you.

            Bronwen, do you know what is the cost for brunch at the Four Seasons? Inquiring minds want to know...

              If you remember the will be very useful...


            3. A trip to the Sunday brunch at Las Mananitas in nearby Cuernavaca is a memory maker. It is more elegant than The Mansion in Turtle Creek in Dallas, which says something.

                Veggo, what an excellent suggestion! Las Mañanitas is completely gorgeous--and a peacock will share your breakfast, eating right out of your hand!

                  Thanks for remind me...
                  Never been there,,, But everyone says the place is amazing...

                3. Today on Groupon Mexico there is a discount for 50% off Sunday brunch at Hotel Brick's Brasserie La Moderna.

                  I have been to the hotel for press events and have eaten their appetizers, which are always amazing, (and I usually never eat at those types of events).

                  The brunch sounds pretty good - and comes with unlimited mimosas, bloody marys, etc. So I bought the coupon to check it out. Here is the link if you are interested:


                  Could be worth a try; I guess I'll find out and will post a review.
