There’s no mistaking this place for anything other than Mónica Patiño’s. This go around, she’s got her daughter, Micaela Miguel, in tow and they’ve got a spot in the Roma neighborhood with an aim to please those looking for a Mediterranean flavor. 

One of the more striking things about avenue Alvaro Obregon is the mob of people waiting to get in at Delirio. Our curiosity led us to discover this small gourmet spot with a Parisian feel. Although the wait is long, there’s a mini-shop and deli to peruse with organic offerings or you can take a peek at the menu which changes daily until your name is called.

There’s options on the menu with influences from Italy, France, Spain and as far as Northern Africa. With tons of sandwiches, baguettes, ciabattas, cheeses, charcuterie, and Arabic snacks that all pair perfectly with the wine list and, in tandem, work to provide a perfectly Mediterranean experience in a landlocked megalopolis.

The coffee here is not only delicious but, known for being supremely affordably prices. The food is top-notch, and the mini-market is full of Mónica Patiño’s branded products, just in case you wanted to take something home that you didn’t get to try.

This place is a home run, no doubt. But, sometimes the crowd Is a bit much and the service suffers so, it’s recommended to bring your patience along with your appetite. We don’t recommend coming here when you’re starving or in a hurry, otherwise you might be famished by the time you hear the host call your name.
