1. Start the day at… Panaderia Rosetta
This wildly popular bakery has the tastiest pastries in town, hands down. Panaderia Rosetta is a spin-off of Rosetta, a charming restaurant located in the trendy Roma Norte neighbourhood, where chef Elena Reygadas was baking such heavenly breads and pastries that its own separate bakery was warranted. The first Panaderia Rosetta opened blocks away from the restaurant and was an immediate success, as expected. Not too long after, Reygadas opened a second bakery in the upcoming Juárez area and, unlike the often-mobbed, hole-in-the-wall original bakery, the new one has ample patio and indoor seating and a significantly shorter wait time. While much of Reygadas’ technique is rooted in the European tradition, guava and ricotta danishes, sugary conchas and pulque bread make Rosetta a Mexican bakery at heart.
