Possibly the finest place in town for a traditional meal, El Cardenal occupies three floors of a Parisian-style mansion and has a pianist playing sweetly in the background. Breakfast is a must, served with a tray of just-baked sweet rolls and a pitcher of frothy, semisweet chocolate. For lunch the house specialty is the pecho de ternera (oven-roasted veal breast).

The latest branch, El Cardenal San Ángel , is in the south.
