Some good vegan options but service is lacking. - Edit

Although they have nice vegan dishes like the lentil burger and curry soup, I find their service is always disappointing.

Last time I was there I wanted to order a dish they started serving at 3pm, and they refused because it was only 2:52. I wouldn't even have minded waiting, but they didn't give me the option.
Another time I went there with a couple of people and ended up spending over $600 and they still asked us to put away a $10 pastry bought from a street vendor on the same sidewalk where their tables are. I get that they have their own policies but they really aren't the best at accommodating costumers and ultimately building a more satisfied clientele.

Service is usually slow and they'll forget things you ask for like napkins or sauces. It's not a bad place to go for specific dishes but I've come to feel like every time I go there I must prepare for bad service.

Pros: Good vegan options

Cons: Bad customer service

Crowded but delicious - Edit

This place has really nice lunch options. Vegan breakfasts aren't great, but vegan lunches are. The milanesa vegetariana for lunch is REALLY good, the drinks are great and it's all very natural and healthy, despite not being a "superfood" place.
Weekend mornings get crazy crowded.
The chairs are very uncomfortable (important if you have back problems)

Pros: Great food, Good service

Cons: Not so great vegan options

Nice spot, good pastries and coffee, $$$ breakfast - Edit

This was a nice little spot with great outdoor seating and an excellent vibe. We'd hoped to get breakfast, but after checking out the prices decided that we couldn't pay over $100 for a breakfast when we can get the same dish for $35 elsewhere. I'm sure the quality is better, but that price difference is huge. We ended up getting coffee and some pastries, which turned out to be a good idea. Everything was really good and it was nice to taste some coffee that reminded me of home (Brooklyn). My southern wife was impressed by the whole-grain (integral) biscuit. I asked for butter, and they brought out a big glob of it, somehow knowing my needs :)

The lunch meals sounded really good and were more reasonably priced. I'm not sure why the breakfast was so high. You can't get the lunches until after 1:00 or 1:30 though.

Pros: Great pastries/biscuits, Great coffee, Vibe/ambiance

Cons: Breakfast prices

Hopping little place right on the sidewalk - Edit

We got the vegan ventanas and chaquilles -- both good. The staff was friendly and helped us navigate the menu. Be prepared to wait in line; the place is very busy. We arrived midday and were limited to the breakfast menu -- think there would have been even more interesting dishes later on. Nice bakery on site.

Pros: All the locals seem to eat there, Strolling musicians, Great, fresh food

Cons: Kind of hard to find, No English menu

superb little spot - Edit

Great outpost in Coyoacán, nice outdoor/indoor seating in a bohemian setting. Plenty of vegan specialties including the couscous, plus other options which can be arranged by request. Open late as well (till 10 p.m., 7 days per week) - highly recommended!

Pros: arty, unique, great location

Cons: far from the center, a bit pricey

Great place to be... - Edit

This Casa del Pan is a welcoming place to rest. It is in a great location though next to a busy road - you can forget about the cars. The staff are very friendly. And the menu looked extensive. I only had a Beetroot, Carrot and Spinach juice which was cheap at 19 pesos, but also quite small. Delicious though. I also had a chocolate cookie - not vegan or gluten free, and a little dry without a hot drink to dip it in. My bad!
I would recommend it for organic teas, coffees, juices and relaxing.

Pros: Nice atmosphere., Easy to find., Organically conscious and friendly staff

Nice place in nice area - Edit

La casa del pan papalotl seems to be a chain, and has also bakeries/ restaurants in other areas of Mexico. This one is not so nice as the one in San Cristobal de las Casas, but still it is quite ok. Has some light meals like salads, sandwiches, quesedillas, soup, vegetarian milanesa etc. Also has a quite good breakfast menu, and the coffee is fine. The area in itself is a very nice and more quiet part of Mexico city (though this place is situed on a quite trafficated road). As mentioned before, pizzas are great to take away, try the one with nopales (cactus leaves).

Pros: Good quality bakery, Organic, nice area

Cons: traffic, limited options for more solid meals

good help - Edit

this bakery didn't have much as far as selection for vegan breads and such, but the staff was very helpful and went back and asked to make sure which breads were vegan. there were two that were. they were very good tasting breads. the shop was cute, they served coffee and baked goods and well priced. the individual sized breads were 6 pesos each and the loaves were 20-something pesos each.

also, it is in a very nice looking neighborhood. near the frida kahlo museum, if you happen to like her.

Pros: helpful, cheap

Cons: limisted vegan selection

great veggie pizzas - Edit

La Casa del Pan is quaint and pleasant. I highly recommend the personal vegetarian pizzas for 18 pesos. They are pre-made, so you only have to wait a few minutes for them to heat them up for you.

Pros: great pizzas, good aguas, friendly staff

Cons: not many tables, very little inside seating, frequent street performers and beggars
