Best Coffee & Teas at "Buen Dia Café"

Buen Dia Café is 30 steps away from Casa Relox. Why would you go to Starbucks? You have the best homemade Coffees & Teas made with Passion & Love, by Carlos right next door !!!! Mexican or American Breakfast available.

Tacos Al Pastor

YOU CANNOT not have Tacos al Pastor many little taquerias everywhere and specially en the ANCHA DE SAN ANTONIO you will find a lot of them very good ones. But the closest to the Casa Relox there is one in front of "la biblioteca" and one Mesones only at night .... 1 minute walking from the casa.

"Bueno y Barato" (cheap & delicious)

Organic Market

One of the main reasons we bought this casa was because of the location it is situated in the entrance of the Artcraft mercado and walking inside a few minutes it will end up in the organic market ... where you can buy everything that is FRESH PRODUCE, fruits, flowers, juices, foods you can eat here all day long for pennies ... and specially get that mexican feeling and be a part of it !!!! 

Or bing home fresh produce and cook .... You can even take a cooking class and market tour with Paco Cardenas–ask at the Petit Four baker on Mesones
