Amid all the wonderful places to eat in San Miguel sits a tiny El Petit Four which makes wonderful pastries at very reasonable prices. Watch the ladies make mouthwatering pasteries behind a glass wall! Either dine in or take a bag full of beautifully crafted pasteries back to your house/hotel. Not to be missed!

A bit of Europe in the middle of Mexico. Exquisite pastries and delicious continental-style coffee. Confident and competent pastry experts create scrumptious delicacies behind a glass wall in full view of cafe patrons. The ambience makes you feel like you could be in Paris or Vienna. The taste confirms it. This is a place I save for a special treat.... More

Being a lover of well made pastries and deserts, I found San Miguel a little wanting in this category. That is, until I went to El Petit Four and cafe bar. We tried 2 varieties of the fruit tarts and an almond croissant - loved them. I wonder if New Zealand butter is their secret. You'll want to bathe in... More

The fruit brioche is to die for. The espresso is the best in San Miguel. I couldn't stay away from Petit Four the 2 1/2 weeks I was there. It's fun to take the table next to the window looking into the bakery and watch Paco build cakes, scrape up chocolate curls, and decorate pastries. He is really one of... More

El Petit a Four is a bit of Paris in Mexico. The pastries and home made chocolates are superb! Our favorite thing to eat is their Caprese sandwich. They are amazing. They also serve superb cappuccino. You will not be disappointed!
