Mi Cocina San Miguel. It may be the sweetest, nicest cocina económica ever.
This neat little restaurant is located at the corner of Calle Monterde and the northern end of Calle Águstin Melgar, Colonia Chapultepec Norte.
It's a sunny spot, due to three (yes, 3!) roll up doors and big picture windows, with above average decor. (Don't worry. It has the requisite plastic chairs.)

The food is good, the service swift, and the price is right.
Sra. Cuevas had a plate of beautiful Huevos Estrellados y Chilaquiles y frijoles. The pink grapefruit juice was freshly squeezed.
I decided to shun eggs that morning, so I had instead a hearty plate of Carne de Puerco en Chile, arroz y frijoles.
And pink grapefruit juice. I also had a Sprite from the beverage cooler. Naturally, our meals came with hot tortillas. La Señora had a big cup of so-so café de olla.
All that for a total of $89 pesos, plus a tip.
Restroom: Clean and well stocked
We would return, not only for breakfasts, but for comida.
No colonia is complete without its panadería.
This area is fortunate to a have a clean, well lighted bakery in the form of Panadería Santa Ana Maya. It's in the middle of the strip mall on the east side of Calle Francisco Márquez, between Calles Fernando Montes de Oca and Monterde. It's flanked by the spacious Tortas La Imperial restaurant and a Wings, Beer and Wine restaurant.

Mention must be made of the special galletas de Santa Ana Maya, flat, friable and accompanied by a tiny container of sticky piloncillo syrup.
I give the Panadería Santa Ana Maya an overall RATING of 7.
