“Favorite daily stop!”
Review of Cafe La Ventana

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! We literally went here nearly everyday for a month. Thank you Cafe la Ventana...

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 to check when opening would be toilet paper for customers, or the last thing in the day to do would be that. If I made such a mistake, I would apologize profusely and offer the customer a free cup of coffee, at the least. Not only is it dark and small, but to have such poor treatment is a disgrace, no matter the culture or country of origin of the customer.

The coffee is great, the gourmet kind is just superb. The place is cozy but limited in seats and needs to improve in size as the business is getting renowned.
By now is more of a buy and leave kind of place.
My family having teenagers not into coffee... often go to other coffee shops that offer less caffeinated drinks as chai tea or other teas etc.
This week my family following my advice went to enjoy the great coffee at La Ventana when an employee from Argentina being very rude just dismissed them. The reason is understandable ...is a small place, the attitude is not, great places also lose great clients.

This small coffee shop is locally owned and operated. Great place for coffee any time of day and pastries, etc. They are called La Ventana (the window) because there is a window on the street for carry out in addition to a small sit down cafe. The owner, Josefina, is Argentinian and is a lovely person.

Patronize this place! I love it and have been buying my beans here for years.
