El Cardenal

El Cardenal has delighted the palates of several generations since 1969. Located in the Centro Historico area of Mexico City, this restaurant represents the diversity of Mexican food with dishes from different regions of the country. Tucked inside a beautiful Porfirian building, their breakfasts are anthological, with freshly baked bread, homemade tortillas and cheeses produced on their own ranch. For lunch, they offer traditional dishes that seek to portray the popular cuisine of our country. Unpretentious food that awakens feelings and memories in every bite. El Cardenal, more than a restaurant, is a repository of Mexican gastronomy that opens its doors to enthusiasts of our cuisine.
