Spotlight on Mexico City: Centro Cultural Elena Garro

Discover this peaceful respite in the popular Coyoacan neighborhood.

Coyoacan is one of the city’s most-visited areas due to the cobblestoned streets, ancient churches, museums, the colonial manors, and artisans’ markets. But while discovering the borough’s many wonders, it is a good idea to take a break at a peaceful location.

Centro Cultural Elena Garro, named after this Mexican famous writer, hides a charming cafeteria at the back of the bookshop. From the outside, the glass façade shields a striking tree enclosed indoors, contrasting with the brick walls and the neighboring colonial houses.

The library has a carefully curated variety of books and magazines you can leaf through once you reach the garden where the cafeteria is located (English titles are available).
