Pros: As a bread fan have to say it is one of the best bread shops in Mexico. The place is very well located, the music was good, the service was excellent. The ingredients are high quality so the food is really good. Cons: the coffee was a little bit burned, though I loved the way the foam of my... More

Our experience is based only on one visit ... the star of our breakfast being their fruit plate with yogurt: papaya, melon, pineapple, strawberries, mango, blueberries. Well done pastries in par with what one would find in great cities of the world. The disappointing part was that they only had mandarin and grapefruit juice, albeit freshly squeezed. Or was it...

I've been enjoying Mesa Grande meals for a few years and they have not their luster. Great service from Carlos and Amber make stopping in a pleasure. The baked goods are excellent....croissants to bagels and multigrano loaves whole or sliced. The breakfast menu has enough egg dishes to satisfy. The sandwich selection is fabulous, BLT, cornedbeef to name just two.... More

Nice people, able and willing to speak English if you need it. The coffee was good and the atmosphere was charming, perhaps best described as faux dilapidation. They have craft beers for sale, a rarity in Mexico more or less but not so much here in San Miguel de Allende.

Delicious bakery goods are freshly made here. The breakfast is always good as are the sandwiches. It's a wonderful, neighborhood place.

Expensive, bar service is very doubtable, coffee latte and chocolate very poor. Although they might have some good bread sometime.

We found this place mid-way through our vacation, and then walked there every day to pick up pastries for breakfast. The croissants, mini quiche, and really any of them are just to die for. The coffee was good, not great, but the pastries were worth it.
