Toledo Rooftop may be known as one of the coolest places in Mexico City for a night out any other day of the week, but if you’re more in the mood to relax and eat delicious food with fresh cocktails in hand, it can very well be that as well!
With that said, we recently got the chance to visit Toledo on an unlikely day – a Sunday. Let us tell you something: We’ve officially made it our favorite Sunday brunch spot in town!
???? Toledo Rooftop Mexico City Review
Created by chef Oscar Valdez, Toledo Rooftop’s menu executes the “Baja Med” cuisine, a fascinating fusion of Asian, Mediterranean, and coastal Mexican gastronomy.
Baja Med cuisine originated in the state of Baja California. Seafood is, of course, a heavy influence on most recipes with an added element of Mediterranean leverage thanks to the use of wine, olive oil, and arugula. All flavors that thrive in Baja’s climate.
Baja Med also boasts an oriental influence in its spices and cooking techniques – this comes from the Asian communities that immigrated to certain parts of the peninsula such as Mexicali.

Aside from its regular menu, Toledo Rooftop shares its kitchen with some best chefs from all over Mexico regularly.
Every month, you’ll find a different takeover menu here. During our visit last July 2022, we got to sample dishes crafted by chef Naguib Kuri from Casa Kuri – a traditional Lebanese restaurant in Condesa.
Other names who have taken over Toledo Rooftop include Joaquin Cardoso from Loup Bar, Lula Martín del Campo from Marea, Gerardo Vázquez Lugo from Nicos, Pedro Martin from Bula, Germán Caraballo from Kyu, Josefina Santa Cruz from Sesame, and many more!
This makes brunching at Toledo Rooftop an incredibly well-rounded experience. If you live in Mexico City permanently or are staying long-term, you could virtually visit once every month and never get to have the same culinary experience twice (not to mention you can sample some of the best menus in the city in one single place!).
Perched on the top floor of a building in the bustling area of Juarez, Toledo Rooftop’s space feels like an oasis perfect to escape the city if only for a while.
Surrounded by greenery and a rustic-yet-chic vibe, Toledo’s design screams for you to relax drink in hand. Choose from the many tables available or, better yet – grab yourself a seat at the terrace where you’ll find comfy couches and expansive views of the Mexico City skyline.
Sundays are dog-friendly
On Sundays, Toledo Rooftop is a place where you can come and share an afternoon with your furry friends.
While Toledo is known for being a bit of a party hot spot, especially on Fridays and Saturdays, Sundays are pretty quiet and chilled out at this emblematic Mexico City rooftop.
You don’t have to feel guilty about leaving the pups at home to go out all day because you’ll be able to bring them along (and they’ll love sunbathing for a few hours at the terrace!)
Toledo Rooftop is located in the Juarez neighborhood right in the heart of Mexico City. As you approach the place, it looks like any other building in the city – there is no signage that says you’re at Toledo Rooftop but you’re at the right place!
You will need to enter and let them know you’re visiting Toledo Rooftop at the reception – it’s located on the 6th floor and there’s an elevator available.
