I went here for brunch/breakfast the other day. They have a reliable wifi connection, outlets to charge your computer (I think a few) and the wait staff was attentive (but this may have been because there was virtually no one else there). They also have...More

We happen to stop in this location by accident, but it was a great one the food was really good only that i wish they had a larger selection of Mexican wines. This was a great stop within our trip in South of Mexico.

Roma
Known for its constant cultural and gastronomic
developments, Roma, is a beautiful neighborhood that
was once the place for poets such as Kerouac and
Ginsberg to call home. Galleries, museums and even
private residences are on beautiful display when
walking through Colima street to do some necessary
shopping or when going to the classic Cine Tonalá to
enjoy a delicious dinner and a great film. Top notch

Description
Small and cozy place in the heart on Colonia Roma, the epicenter of entertainment in the city.
Mainly French food with Argentinean and Italian touches that correspond to the owner’s origins. On the menu, Nocoise salads and the chicken casserole are highlighted as the typical French dishes, but it also has a variety of delicious pizzas and grilled cuts.
