I picked up an almond and apple pie to take to friends for dinner. I looked so beautiful and tasted just as good.

Paco uses the best local ingredients as he creates delectable pastries, chocolates, coffee and more. His store is inviting, bright, hip and super clean. Coffee also excellent and pastries, you cannot go wrong. Staff is cordial, helpful and kind and he should be an ambassador for Mexico as his charm, energy, kindness and knowledge are global and extraordinary. Love this... More

[Note: "more than excellent" = superb] Head for the Petit Four across from the Peralta Theatre with cafe tables in the entrance to one of San Miguel's older buildings. Pick a table and order from the bakery on the left as... More

El Petit Four is a great place to stop for a coffee and pastry. Oh my God, you have to try the Almond Croissant. There are many other good things too. There are still more things for me to try as I will be here a little longer.

This is a cute little place on Mesones. You walk into the main doors, and to the right is the coffee area and to the left is the bakery. Beyond the bakery, you'll see the ladies making your desserts. Fresh, delicious, a bit of heaven in every bite. There are about 8 tables in the place. I preferred a table... More

Yes, a few other yummies from their display case would warrant mayhem as well. Watch the ladies make all the goodies from the window into the kitchen. Really great pastries, cakes, tarts. Can't get enough.

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.
