San Miguel, a very cosmopolitan place
By Sandra Ríos
San Miguel de Allende is listed as one of the most fashionable tourist destinations, both nationally and internationally, for its architectural beauty, excellent climate, service, cuisine and culture. And to confirm this, we will give you some suggestions for spending a wonderful day here. Start with a delicious breakfast at Cumpanio on calle Correo 2, which offers a gourmet bakery. Breakfast choices here are varied and very inviting. One possibility is an order of eggs to taste. The French-style chocolatin, a chocolate-filled pastry, is also a delight, especially when accompanied by a cup of fresh brewed coffee.
During these hot days, passing some time in a cool, shady locale is refreshing, and the ideal spot for that is Escondido Place, with its green spaces and vaults with both fresh and thermal waters. There you can order something to eat and a cold beer. It’s about 10 km from San Miguel on MEX 51 highway on the way to Dolores Hidalgo. Back in town in the early evening, have a drink and enjoy an excellent view of La Parroquia. Then we suggest the terrace of Mamma Mia, nearby at calle Umaran 8, and enjoyment of a hot, tasty pizza or pasta with a flavorful sauce.
