Rich chocolate!

This was my first time trying an Éclair and I loved it. I normally dislike creme filled pastries but this chocolate cream I think was probably made from scratch, not from a can, delicious! My partner had an excellent slice of lemon merengue tart, my mother in-law the dark truffle cake which was... read more

This is a little gem. Great place for breakfast, excellent pastry items and wonderful coffee. You can sit and watch them make beautiful cakes and the staff is very friendly. Try the almond croissant, it is die for!!

El Petit Four has been a tradition in San Miguel over the years for enjoying a fantastic cup of coffee. It's a must for every traveller when visiting San Miguel.

We must admit, we loved the small bakery when we first walked in. Everything we tried was delicious and great coffee. Reminded us of a French bakery with sufficient seating. Later in the day, we had an unique lemonade, fresh lemon and lime juice, a little sweetener, and sparkling water...wow. The owner Chef Paco also holds an outstanding cooking class.... More

Situated across from the Angel theatre on Calle Mesones, this restaurant is open every day except Monday. Their delicious desserts and hot chocolate are decadent in the extreme. They have a selection of petit fours and delicious cakes. All in all a great dessert place.

yummy banquettes and cakes, great place for a break from sightseeing. They make beautiful cakes to order and you can watch through the big window from the cafe into the kitchen. The chef & owner even let us sample one! Get some extra pastries to go.

Or better for your waistline, walk here with several friends and share one of everything! These pastries are wonderful. When I stood drooling in front of the display case, they had chocolate cake, cheesecake, pecan pie, other cakes, fruit custard tarts, chocolate eclairs, danishes and chocolates. (There were more selections, but my vision started to blur as i swooned!) The... More

This little cafe, coffee bar and pastry shop on Mesones is a great place to rest and recover after walking around SMA or a great place to start your day. The Mexican hot chocolate is absolutely delicious as are the cafe lattes. We picked up some brownies to take to a friend's place for dessert and they were some of... More

A great place for coffee and pastries. The cakes are wonderful, a real treat. I love their hand made chocolates and the cinnamon/nut roll best but everything else is very good too, depending on your preference and tastebuds.

Never eaten here but great fan of the wonderful baguettes and pastries. Also highly recommend the Mexican chocolate. Everything has always been perfect. A little on the pricey side (for Mexico) but well worth it. Service is excellent and very friendly.
