One of the most delicious breakfasts I have ever had anywhere. Service a bit slow, understandable since the place was packed at 10 am. Coffee was perfect. The ham that accompanied my dish (croque?) was the most delicious pork I have ever eaten. I highly recommend this place. Looking forward to returning for lunch.

Good breakfasts but the lunch/dinner and pastries are not to die for ... the bacon croissant was pretty nice at breakfast but we went back for a function later another day and the lunch food was not up to par nor were the pastries. Hit and miss.

It used to be a good place to have breakfast, but now it isn´t. Last sunday we went and the service was really bad, the food has nothing special, the french toast was awful and small. We asked for the french toast before our other plates, but everything came at the same time. Also a noisy TV was on, we... More

I've been to Masa Madre more than 10 times now and each time the food is delicious and I personally believe they offer the best coffee and bread in the neighbourhood. The bread is cooked on site and is a little expensive but worth it. The Passion MM sweet bread is to die for.

We were brought here by friends who live here and had enjoyed the previous branch. Staff were helpful and attentive. We enjoyed the pastries, Eggs Benedict, Huevos Divorciados and Scrambled Eggs - all very good. Would definitely visit again.

This place in the new location is an upgrade of the prior one, I wouldn’t call it evolution instead revolution. I had a great pastries but the best thing is the croquet madam, I have had some in Paris and it has a personal style that can compete with some of the best. Ingredients are great, meat is delicious and... More

A little improvised. Some parts of the menu need to be revised. Great bread and good service. I'll be back in a few weeks just to see if they improve.

A lean menu makes it easy to choose your option for breakfast, the service is good and it is a pet friendly place. The Croque Monsieur is a good choice or if you prefer something lighter the omelettes are great. If you are low on budget you can choose a meal for less than 100 pesos.

Because of the reviews, I decided to go there. The visit was a short one, just to know the place since I was on the area and just finish eating. It was imposible to leave without 2 pieces of pan dulce and... wow, simply delicious, can't wait to go back.
