These are amazing pastries! I love good food and this place is not to be missed. We had coffee and fruit tarts with a side of chocolate dipped orange slices. We will definitely go back for more. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Nice little Shop with fine pastries and delicious coffee. I was expecting a friendly atmosphere since I read about it in an international publication, but it is rather stuffy. If you need a fancy cake or pastry while in San Miguel de Allende then this is your spot. However if you want a friendly and still sophisticated place try Casa... More

French pastries and coffee in the heart of San Miguel. Paco was so gracious and interesting to talk to. Great little spot to sit and people watch while enjoying something delicious. Service was great! Loved our experience.

Service is terrific, site simple and pleasant, coffee excellent and the CROISSANTS, plain or almond, O La La! I rarely eat sweet pastries but these are extraordinary. I love the art work there as well, by owner's wife I believe.

Un fuerte abrazo Paco! We had the fortune to take part in a hands on cooking class with Paco; more than a cooking class, it was an experience. Paco took an international group of us (Latvian, German, Mexican) through his market tour and cooking class, and it was a wonderful experience! We also visited his shop and tasted his delicious...

San Miguel boasts multiple outstanding bakeries; one even has a Parisian at the helm. After trying several, however, my wife and I decided that Petit Four edges out the others with pastries as beautiful and delicious as any we've had in France--and with really good cappuccinos to accompany them. It's a great little patisserie in the very heart of downtown... More

A small but pleasant cafe in the centre of San Miguel. Desserts were also very good. A great spot to rest weary legs. It's located beside Mint Nightclub - so gay friendly.

We came to the right place to get two outstanding cakes for my husband's birthday party. First, we looked at the options in the glass display. All looked great, but there wasn't a whole carrot cake. Upon my asking, a fresh one was brought from the back. A second cake, layers of sponge cake with custard between topped with several... More
