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

Taking care of every detail. Fresh bread, amazing chocolates, the best coffee in town. Certainly you need to make a stop here, not only once, but... 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!

"The best almond croissants this side of France," a friend told us, and they were right. (Even having experienced the real deal this Spring.) Also worth a sample: whole wheat scones with raisins (integrales con pasas.) We'll be BACK!

Okay, so we having been going to El Petit Four for 8 or 9 years.years. Why, because the food is great! The Caprese sandwiches make my heart skip a beat. Our 17 year old would eat them daily if allowed. Maybe twice a day as they are that good! I actually bring them home on the plane to LA. I... More

This is a lovely little bakery and cafe. It is close to The Jardin and has just a few tables so is usually full. The bakery items are displayed so that it is hard to choose as they all look delicious.
