It can be a challenge to be a vegetarian visiting Mexico City, but this is the best choice I've found anywhere. Tucked into a lovely side street, this clean, friendly, fast, fabulous spot awaits. An interesting, fun menu with a wide variety of choices in salads, sandwiches and a daily soup. The juices are ingenious combinations. Frutos Prohibidos, go and... More

Wraps are absolutely delicious, juices rock and breakfast eggs are really nice. It's nice to sit inside for a meal or sit outside for a snack. Their brownies are also nice. Great value for money

We went here for breakfast and it was just great! We ordered several juices which were absolutely delicious. Next to that we ordered the chilaquiles and molletes. Both were great. Overall good value for money.

I used to give German class there some time, though it is always kind of noisy and many people pass by. I guess this one in Michoacon street is moos crowded, due to its position. They have nice juices, food is ok, though you might find places where you get more for your buck. They have a board, many people... More

Generous portion of salad, juice (good selection) and coffee for mxn140. Nice bar to sit at and watch the world go by. You queue up and pay first. Has a kind of health food vibe with advice about ingredients.

I went to this cute little place with a coworker for lunch. I wasn't hungry, just had poblano soup, and it was delicious. Standard, simple, inexpensive.

There's a nice place to eat deli style. Nice sandwiches and bagels, strange combinations of juices but expensive. They are fast when not crowded, you could wait 30-40 min.

In a country where you can find very inexpensive fruits and juices, this place seems as they are charging you the location. Simple food, nothing delicious. Fresh fruit.
