We have been eating both breakfast and lunch here for over 3 years. We love the choices and and the consistency. Eggs, fruit, French toast, burritos for breakfast. The falafel or avocado sandwich, veggie burritos, salads, great smoothies and banana or brownie muffins. Service is always, also!

Five friends met for lunch and all of us were pleased with our meals. The menu is varied and we each chose something different - Falafels On Pita Bread, Avocado Sandwich, Smoked Salmon on Bagel, Quesadillas and I can't remember the fifth one (it was all of 8 hours ago!). Not being fond of juice my husband and I opted... More

Love this place, don't get me wrong. However, i have become quite sick from here as well. Served burrito but within 5 minutes was getting very stuffed up and ended up with a horrible flu/cold by the end of the day. Obviously, one of the cooks was not taking care to keep germs away from food.

Stopped in at La Media Naranja for lunch today. A very nice, bright little restaurant just at the outside of Centro. They have a large variety of juices. I had Cranberry with mineral water. Tart and not too sweet. For lunch I had the daily special which was a Prosciutto ham with Brie sandwich and curry potato salad. The sandwich... More

On my arrival into San Miguel as I begin retirement in this lovely city, Francisco, the taxi driver who escorted me from Leon Airport, recommended I try this cafe at some time as it was both delicious and reasonably-priced! He was right on! La Media Naranja has become my favorite breakfast spot! The staff is kind and accommodating and the... More

This is a small cafe on the second floor. It seems to be popular with ex-pats -- there were several of them there when we were there. The food is simple, but good. The service was a bit slow, but otherwise very good. It is a good place to sit and eat while looking out over a busy intersection.

Good sized portions and very friendly service. I had the salmon cakes which were amazing! They were accompanied by 2 salads, both delicious.There were several other choices on... More

The menus are interesting because they have all the typical lunch and breakfast fare but a few added surprises like good bagels and falafel dishes. the portions are very good. The food is very tasty. The people are wonderful and maybe most important the prices are more than reasonable. You can't go wrong here.

They have these crazy crack cocaine tasting brownie muffins that you must stay away from bc they are way too delicious! :P And clearly made with something like crisco (not butter) so yeah theyre tasty. They go great with a cheap $17 coffee. I wasnt a fan of the egg dishes as I found them too buttery, but they have... More
