Summary of Review

Beautiful decor. Flawless service. The terrace overlooks the Fountain of Diana. Great view and a fabulous breakfast buffet or a la carte menu. Reasonably priced. They have one of the best breakfasts in town.

Restaurant Review for Terraza at Diana Restaurant

I can’t comment on every culture in the world, but I know that Americans, Canadians, Brits and Aussies all appreciate a good breakfast. One with eggs (and beans too, if you’re a Brit or an Aussie). Finding a breakfast with eggs can be a challenge in many parts of Latin America. Well the good news for all you gringos is that Mexicans like eggs for breakfast too.

On my latest whirlwind gastronomy tour of Mexico City, I had breakfast in about every shape and form. From the ever popular chilaquiles (basically, nachos with an egg on top) to the more familiar Eggs Benedict at Breakfast in Condesa, a French omelet and an excellent Croque Madame at Maison Kayser.

I’d read some good things about the brunch at the St. Regis and figured that if they had a great brunch they’d at least have a good breakfast with eggs.

Well, my expectations were exceeded. Not only does the St. Regis Terraza Restaurant have a good breakfast. They have, in my not so humble opinion, one of the best breakfasts in town.

The view from the rooftop terraza, overlooking the Fountain of Diana, and the Paseo de Reforma, is outstanding. The restaurant is first-class in every category. Beautiful décor. Flawless service. Every employee appeared to be bi-lingual (English and Spanish . . . sorry if you only speak Mandarin you might have a problem).

Of course, many hotels can boast these characteristics. What about the food?

They have a buffet for $250 with the works. But I opted for something a la carte. I ordered a traditional Huevo Motuleños, a delicately fried egg covered in delicious and very light red salsa, topped with peas and little bits of ham. An added bonus . . . a few slices of cooked plantains.

Further accompanied by a delicious caraway seed toast and creamy butter at the perfect consistency for spreading. (Don’t you hate it when the butter is served hard as a brick?)

And of course I had my usual two cups of cappuccino. Good coffee. Perfectly made.

You’d think this culinary dog and pony show might set you back 400 pesos or more at such a ritzy hotel. But not so. The plate of eggs was a paltry US$10 (180 pesos). The cups of coffee were a bit lofty in price at US$3.50 (65 pesos), but not outrageously so.

Someday soon when I don’t feel compelled to wear my jeans or cutoffs (which would be in poor taste in this venue) I’ll be back to the Terraza at the St. Regis for breakfast (and possibly lunch too).
