We spent an enjoyable several hours in the kitchen learning about traditional Mexican cuisine, guacamole, salsa, tres Letche cake, cactus, mole and more. Kris, the chef, was warm and friendly and obviously knowledgeable about cooking and the history of Mexico and SMA. If you take this class you will have a good time.

This is a warm and wonderful place to have lunch or dinner, and their hamburgers are really inexpensive and the best in town. The owner's family is very friendly, and the food is excellent. Hidden gem!

If you are a Mole lover, can't pass the eggs on tortillas covered with a smooth and flavorful Mole sauce that is made from scratch by the young man's wife in the kitchen.

Excellent coffee.

This cafe was close to where we stayed in San Miguel.
We had breakfast there almost every morning.
Beyond wonderful. My favorite was a large bowl of fresh fruit,
Topped with delicious yogurt, then granulated honey, granola and raisins.
While most food in San Miguel is great, most is heavy. This
Breakfast was a wonderful balance for the day.
The staff became friends, and it was clear that many customers
We're locals who eat there all the time.
Warm, friendly, joyous little cafe.
A true gem!

I ordered two salmon salads to go - and they were fantastic. Yummy seared salmon, with goat cheese, roasted nuts and sliced pears. They even delivered to our door. Sweet family run neighborhood place.
