We are staying for a few months and like our coffee French Roast. we make our own pot in the morning and the best fresh roasted and ground coffee in SMdA is that sold at Cafe La Ventana. Absolutely the best in town. forget starbucks or the Mega Mearket, La Ventana is affordable and excellent.

I met recently a couple of friends here for coffee and hot chocolate. The service was very nice and pleasant, the interior is clean and both the hot chocolate and the coffee were good. A coffee lovers dream ... hmmm.... me think not ... but a nice place nevertheless. Nondescript in many ways.

I'm not a complete obsessive, but I like my coffee, and I like my coffee the way I make it. I was therefor overjoyed, a few years back, to discover that I could get a high quality bean, from a window in the center of town. The staff is friendly, the coffee is good, and you can also get a... More

Whether you order your coffee through the window directly on the sidewalk......and you'll be blocking pedestrian traffic to do so.....or if you find your way (not so easy if you don't know where you're going) into the tiny, dark, but cosy interior, you will be treated to the amazing aroma of roasted coffee beans and freshly-brewing coffee. I prefer to... More

Coffee is good (nothing excellent), however I found the price a little bit high. The place is different because you order over a window and doesn´t have a street entrance. However, there´s a service but you better ask the attendant the way in. This is a good place to grab a good coffee before walking around San Miguel de Allende.

This place is so small it doesn't even have a direct entrance onto the street, only a window for walk-up service. If you want to go in to buy bulk coffee, and you should, you have to go in through a multi-use space of some sort. But it's worth it. Mere steps from the Jardin, it couldn't be more convenient....

It is a very charming place with a great location. A nice ambiance with what must be the best coffee in town. Service is excellent and friendly. The main product is an amazing organic coffee from Chiapas.

La Ventana at Sollano 11 (Centro) is a coffee bar with a sidewalk walk-up window as well as inside sit down service. The cafe serves up rich and delicious coffee (espresso, latte, Americano, cappuchino, etc. etc.) from the State of Chiapas ground fresh each morning. This is a great place to sit indoors and sip or get a cup to... More

There is a lot of great coffee in San Miguel but this was by far the favorite for a group of us Northwest, Americans, who are obsessed with good coffee! They where so friendly and the coffee was amazing everyday. We'd stop there and then stroll with our Mocha double's and cappuccinos! I also discovered they have incredible banana breads!... More

I was in La Ventana recently and was embarrassed to use the bathroom and have absolutely no toilet paper. And no paper towel alternatives. Nothing. I'll leave the rest to your imagination...I exited and explained the situation to the owner and employee, and they never even apologized for the extreme inconvenience. If it were my coffee shop, the first thing... More
