Cafebreria El Pendulo

Part bookstore, part cafe, and part forest. 

This amazing two-story cafe-bookstore offers up a healthy serving of eye candy in the form of wooden floors, balconies with curvy green handrails, and living plants that seem to protrude from the shelves. The store will stir up your imagination, or at least give you something to look at as you stir your coffee.The bookshop has new titles or reprints of older books and music (CD and vinyl) sealed in plastic wrap. Don’t expect to find old, rare books or to have to dig through dusty crates of trash and treasure.

Know Before You Go

The dining gets less formal over each floor—table dining on the ground floor, sofas and reading for the cafe on the first floor, and a bar on the second floor. The bookstore is located in the heart of the Zona Rosa. The address is: Calle Hamburgo 126 Col. Juárez 06600 México, D.F.
