Qué Sería de Mí
Qué Sería de Mí
Alfonso Reyes 164 Local B, Condesa, Mexico City, Mexico
Qué Sería de Mí is more than a delicious hole-in-the-wall for brunch in Condesa that serves a sophisticated range of foods: it’s one of the best breakfast eateries in all of Mexico City. This Condesa restaurant specializes in local cheeses, and their best menu options are definitely their cheese platter and world-famous blueberry and ricotta pancakes, but they offer so much more for vegans and the lactose-intolerant. They serve fresh-squeezed juices, chilaquiles, and a thick, rich tomato soup flavored with Italian pesto. Qué Sería de Mí occupies a tiny location with limited seating, so show up early or be prepared to wait in a line that often stretches down the sidewalk.
