I found this list incomplete, there are also restaurants from the ISKCON Hinduism Centers, I list some of them here, hence, there are more than that... It's good to know that this places are quite cheap, and food is much tastier and complete than other vegetarian food places:

Vegetariano Gopinatha:(Less than 4 USD a complete menu!!!)
Address: Av. Insurgentes Centro #15 local A Colonia Sn Rafael Tel: 555-703-1304

Radha-Madhava: (less than 5 USD for a complete menu!!!!)
Address: San Andres #25 Col. Parque Sn Andres Tel: 555-544-2498

ISKCON Cultural Center (Less than 5 USD per menu!!!)
Address: Gobernador Tiburcio Montiel #45 Colonia San Miguel Chapultepec. Tel: 555-273-1953

Hope this list helps!!! It's really a good choice to go to these places, even if you're not interested in the Hare Krishna movement.

In Mexico City there are two websites to look up for natural foods shopping and dining. Both have various locations in the city and else where.

www.thegreencorner.com -market and restaurant
www.casadelpan.com -bakery, cafe, and small shop (eco-tienda)

I would like to find a website for the restaurant 100% Natural to find more locations. They have small cafes in the shopping malls but the restaurants are better!

Mexico City is a vibrant place with lots of buildings, cars, and people - locals & Mexicans from other areas & some foreigner. Prices for accommodation & food in the main districts (such as Centro Historical & Zona Rosa) are nearly comparable to US prices (not cheap for budget travelers). The most interesting part of Mexico city for us was Centro Historical (downtown "zocalo") - lots of people, historical buildings, and shops. FOOD: Restaurants and cafes serve mostly Mexican & international such as Cuban and Argentinian, and Vegetarian choices are few. There are some vegetarian restaurants throughout the main parts of the city and are listed on the HappyCow site. But generally, the vegetarian fare is not cheap & the taste is average. Street foods are a mix of meats & veggies with cheese. Try the roasted or steam corn on the cob! ACCOMODATION: A private room in a youth hostel costs around usd$25-35 and in a mid-range hotel around usd$45-100. Recommend the Hotel Isabel or the Hostel Amigo (about usd$18-30) and the Holiday Inn (about usd$100-150). SIDE TRIP: Majestic Teotihucan pyramids just 1 hour north of the city is a site worth a visit.

Looking at this site and recalling several of the places I ate at (and some I just walked buy because of the abundance of options) in Mexico City is great. There are many more places that I loved that are missing from this list.
