an option - Edit

For gluten free vegan, this is an option that you could probably consider. Falafel is good but they come in a very small bite sizes patty (probably because they only made them to use as filling).
Vegan icecream was good.
They have gluten free donuts.

great falafel - Edit

I really enjoyed the falafel with pita bread i took here. All the ingredients tasted so fresh! In my opinion the pita bread was a little bit thin. Also the price was very oke for what you get. I would recommend this place to everyone who likes falafel.

Pros: good service, good food

nice place - Edit

Everything was really nice. You can choose between different sauce. I jus found the normal portion a bit small for the price but beside this, I really enjoyed the food.

Lovely little place on the park - Edit

Nicely situated on the street corner overlooking the park. This place is great to drop by for a falafel pita on a sunny afternoon. They have meal deals where you get a falafel pita, a sizeable pot of hummus, pita chips and an aqua del dia for 90 pesos. The falafel balls are excellent, medium sized and very fresh. Also you can choose between white and wholegrain pita (yay!) although the pita bread we had was quite dry. Mostly though it's a really enjoyable outside / street eating / friendly atmosphere.

Pros: Friendly vibe, Good falafel, Wholegrain pita bread option

Cons: Dry pita bread

Really good - Edit

Lots of different meal deals available that are pretty good value. It's all delicious except the wraps and pita pockets, like a lot of bread in Mexico, are sweet, which is a bit weird for me. Service can be a bit odd.

My standby joint - Edit

delicious falafels - Edit

Popular place on the corner. For 75 pesos I had a small pita stuffed to overflowing with tasty falafel balls, thinly sliced grilled eggplant, alfalfa sprouts, shredded cabbage, red pepper, grated carrot and more. Sauces are available. It came with a small plate of hummus, tortilla chips and water-of-the-day. There are several possible combination meals. Good food!

Pros: delicious food, inexpensive

Awesome Experience! - Edit

After having a bad experience at another vegan place nearby we needed a rebound and Falafelito was that!

Some of the best falafel I've had anywhere (US, Europe, Canada). Not over or underseasoned, crispy but still with a good soft center - and good and hot! Veggies on my pita were fresh and crisp. The hummus and sauces were also really good (especially the white sauce - which I'm guessing is their take on tzatziki). Was a super filling meal (which we needed after a day of walking around DF)!

About $5 US dollars for a 6 falafel pita pocket, side of hummus and a drink (drink of the day - was a minty lemonade) - can't be beat!

Note that seating is limited (few tables and a couple counters) - location is an outside counter - but the weather was wonderful and neighborhood vibrant.

One of the other posters said they don't speak any english here - but the guy working the register the night we went did (at least enough to get through some of the transaction).

Also sure to check out Espresso Borreal next door - believe they are also completely or mostly vegan - have Almond and Coconut milk for lattes. And the espresso is nice and strong.

Pros: Quality, Price, Ambiance

Cons: None that I can think of

Great little spot! - Edit

I had the "Lafalafa" combo which costs 95 pesos and includes a large falafel wrap, a drink, and hummus. The ingredients were fresh an had a great taste too. I highly recommend El Falafalito :) The only problem is that they don't have a bathroom.

Pros: reasonable prize, great taste, fresh ingredients

Cons: no bathroom

Real falafel! - Edit

I want to give props to this place -- it's self-professedly vegan and makes real falafel (not pre-made/ warmed-up), which is tasty!

It's pretty much a one-trick pony -- different variations on falafel -- but they do it really well. With the salsas they offered, it actually did have a Mexican kick, too, which was cool. The hummus was ok, not amazing, but the falafelito I got was terrific (I do think I'd get the bigger size if I went back, since the falafel was great, and this one had mini-patties).

A good deal by DF standards, too! The counter guys were nice and efficient. There are tables to eat, though it's more of a quick-bite or take-and-go kind of place.

I'm sure the locations of this local(?) chain are all pretty much the same; I was only able to visit this one, and once, though had I been nearer to one, or been in town longer, I definitely would have visited more.

Pros: Real & tasty falafel, Mexican-kick, Reasonable prices, Efficient service

Cons: Wish there were more!

Solid falafel - Edit

This is a good, solid falafel joint with authentic falafel. Much better than other falafel places we have tried in this part of the world. If you're visiting from the US, Australia or other parts of the world with large Mediterranean communities you should not expect to be blown away.

El mejor falafel jamás! - Edit

Mi espanol es muy malo pero....

Today was my first day in Mexico City, I'm a passionate vegan, and this place absolutely killed it with the Falafel. The portions are perfect, the price is perfect, the service was great and fast.

It's right across the street from Parque Mexico, you can sit down and enjoy your food with access to WiFi.

I think I may go back tomorrow!

Awesome job yall!

Pros: DELICIOUS, CHEAP, DID I SAY DELICIOUS ALREADY?

Cons: IT CLOSES

Favourite lunch spot - Edit

Not enough nice words I can say about Falafelito. I go there because it's near my work and I need a quick and tasty vegan lunch. The staff are lovely. They don't speak English (and why should they?) but are very accomodating if you are not a native Spanish speaker. The falalefels are lovely. The veggies are fresh and they respect the environment too. And if you're not full after their 'pacquete', they also have vegan muffins for sale.
There isn't a lot of seating space, I agree. Though you need to bear in mind this is the hub of cool and hip DF and it's one of the reasonable food options in the colonia. If there are no seats, you can ask for the 'para llevar' (take away) option and enjoy your tasty falafels in Parque de Mexico

Pros: Tasty, Convenient, Fast service

Cons: Could open later! , I crave a vegan snack after drinks

Falafel bellyful - Edit

A great little 100% vegan street-side falafel counter on a pretty tree-lined street. Sit in or take-away. There's outdoor seating and a park across the street with free wi-fi.

Awesome!

Its nice that you can have how mutch sause that you like. Although they were out of the white one when I visited.

Pros: Vegan, Have as mutch sause as you want

Cons: Small place

Awesome little place! - Edit

After a few days in San Cristobal, being a little low on flavourful vegan food (with the exeption of fruit and nuts), we finally gave in and visited Falafelito. And it was The best thing we did in a while! Super cozy little place with a nice staff. We had the falafel plate. Best humous i have had in a good while, hot and flavourful falafels, homemade pita bread, crispy cabbage, tomato, lettuce, onion etc, and a superb variety of condiments, chili etc, made this a winner!

Pros: Homemade with love, Freshly prepared, Vegan friendly

Cons: A bit on the pricy side

Good vegan find - Edit

I went here for lunch and it was great. The falafels were really tasty and there is a choice of pitas and salad. They also do a vegan dessert, which is generally a muffin/ cake. This is a rare find in Mexico so good if you've been missing something sweet and 'cakey'. The lemonade that comes with the lunch deal is also very nice.

Pros: Tasty food, Vegan muffins
