Mex' Brunch in NYC | Cafe El Presidente


"I really enjoyed this light brunch at Cafe el Presidente. When I walked in, it felt like I transported south of the border. The atmosphere is spacious and unique, especially since it's located right in the middle of Flat Iron, New York. I am usually a benedict gal when it comes to brunch. This place is not that! But don't let that stop you from paying a visit here because their food will surprise your tastebuds in a pleasant way. "

I really enjoyed this light brunch at Cafe el Presidente. When I walked in, it felt like I transported south of the border. The atmosphere is spacious and unique, especially since it's located right in the middle of Flat Iron, New York. I am usually a benedict gal when it comes to brunch. This place is not that! But don't let that stop you from paying a visit here because their food will surprise your tastebuds in a pleasant way. All the dishes feel balanced. The fruit with the light honey and mint. The   muffin which tastes like a fusion between a muffin and cornbread with a large punch of Mexican flare. Now, let me get to the tacos. I was bit underwhelmed with the breakfast taco, but the Al Pastor taco stole the show. The presentation and the taste seriously stole my heart. The breakfast taco looks boring and although quite tasty, doesn't have too much dimension to it. The Al Pastor is truly a beauty to stare at and had several textures and caressed my tongue as it went in my mouth. I really appreciated the authentic condiment choices. I am a spicy lover and made partners with the Habanero one. A little goes a long way! To top it all of,  I couldn't help but genuinely feel like I was in a tropical island as I was sipping the Paloma. It was the cherry on top of a wonderful meal.

Cafe el Presidente is an underrated and climbs as one of the most memorable spots in terms of decor for brunch. I can't believe I haven't heard of this place before!
