The night we went, Jan 3rd Sunday, Margarita Gralia was there. Her pictures, Playboy cover and movie posters are all over the walls. (that was a while ago) We had Churros and Hot chocolate here after dinner. Be prepared for a wait but it is worth it. You wait on the street and watch people. Churros were wonderful. Get the carmel and chocolate filled. Oh!!!!

Step into this little cafe in the middle of Mexico and you would swear you were in Paris or Rome. The food is good, hot chocolate & churros, sandwiches & salads. The crowd is lively which makes the people watching lots of fun.

This is a nice cafe in the Centro of San Miguel. Reasonably tasteful and charming, though oversupplied with baskets and knicknacks.

Service is the usual San Miguel standard - friendly and pretty good.

The churros are very good, though I've had better. The rest of the menu seems pretty decent as well from what I tried. The regular coffee is drinkable, but everything else makes you glad there is a Starbucks in town. And I'm not a big fan of Starbucks, but its reliable mediocrity. This cafe made me the worst latte I've had in a long time - even giving that it was a cafe au lait, not a latte.

I'd happily go back here for breakfast and lunch. As would many others - its always full.

One hint - ask for the churros hot. Otherwise you'll get pre-made ones. Made within the hour, true, but the fresh are better.

If you are a fan of Mexican hot chocolate or even better: fried- sugar-covered-sticks of dough (like they have at the state fair), then you must visit San Agustin Chocolates & Churros. This restaurant is known for their "Chocolates y Churros." The best churros I have ever eaten are at this lovely restaurant. It's owned by the famous Mexican actress, Margarita Gralia, and open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. She only accepts cash -- no Mastercard or Visa. For those of you who want to eat healthy, there are some excellent menu options.
It's easy to find as it is across from the church of San Francisco. One must have patience in the evening as a line forms to get in to this small restaurant. It's worse on the weekends as many residents of Mexico City escape to San Miguel, and head for the chocolate and "fried dough".
