But more recently, in fact, on Thursday, November 7, 2013, we again breakfasted at El Cardenal, this time with two of mis cuñadas, who had flown into Mexico City in order to visit us in our Michoacán retreat.
|Las Tres Hermanas|
We like the main, original El Cardenal in Mexico City Centro for its air of subdued formality, the stained glass vitrales, the antique curving staircase; the ceremonious pouring of the famed chocolate o café; the offering of the justly famous pan dulce. The sweet breads, the chocolate and the natas (clotted cream) are all made in house.
This was perhaps the most enjoyable meal we have had at El Cardenal, nearly flawless, attentive service and very good food.
Price: $$+ (La Cuenta)
Ambience: Old school tie.
