The Sweet Life
A Perfect Day
By Jade Arroyo
If you fancy good morning coffee accompanied by a book, your laptop, and your thoughts, visit La Casa del Café, located on Hospicio at the corner of Recreo. This café has warm and personal service, excellent coffee, and tasty pastries. You will relax and feel comfortable here.
Your visit in San Miguel de Allende is not complete until you visit the art and design center Fabrica La Aurora. This place was originally a textile factory some of which remains. You can walk among more than 40 shops and galleries and see a bit of everything, from painting and sculpture, to designer jewelry, decoration, antiques, and fashion. Located a bit away from El Centro, it is on Calzada de la Aurora.
For a delicious meal in a peaceful, beautiful place, visit Aguamiel Cocina Rustica. This restaurant is open from Friday to Monday for lunch and dinner. The menu changes, depending on seasonal products. All the dishes are delicious and are the fruit of creative chef Gaby Green. Pipila 1, Colonia San Antonio.
Back in El Centro, you can have a drink at the rooftop La Azotea (Umaran). And sitting in the Jardín to get some fresh air and talking about the day is always an option. It is also a good place to meet people.
