“Delightful.”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

I noticed this place with just a glimpse through the doorway while walking by and made note to come back and check it out. Funky decor with some comfy patchwork chairs made from pallets. As mentioned in the previous reviews the owner (Paloma is who I met) is lovely with a friendly smile. I only had a panini this time - pleasant and nice presentation - but you can bet I'll be back to try a latte!

“Nice new little place”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Just visited Cafe de la Mancha---and indeed the coffee is great. We're both espresso lovers and the espresso here is very fine, rich, with depth, but not too smoky or burnt-tasting. So far the only food item we have sampled is the panini--- also excellent. The place has a nice vibe, with artwork on display, but it is very small, so be prepared to share space with other clients. The owners are friendly and helpful. And if you're luck, maybe you'll have a chance to meet Huckleberry (Huck), the adorable resident dachshund. This place is definitely worth checking out!

“Best coffee in San Miguel de Allende”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

If you are looking for excellent coffee (espresso, latte, capuccino, french press, Japanese vacuum, Aeropress, etc,) look no further than Recreo 21A. The owners, Paloma and Christian, are passionate about good coffee and it shows.

Their chai is also excellent and they make some great smoothies. We will try some food soon, but I suspect it will be good as well.

“A Little Gem”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

San Miguel is full of places to eat. On some days it's mind-boggling to contemplate the wide array of different kinds of foods or restaurants to choose from when thinking of your next meal. We found this little place while walking into and out of town, and have enjoyed their food, their coffee, and their very excellent service. The owners are delightful people to visit with as you await your pizza or as they prepare your coffee. Very friendly! And others who stop by to pick up orders or have coffee usually like to join in the conversation with the owners and patrons. The pizza, which is prepared on their homemade thin crust (pan arabe as they call it) is delicious. Try this place some day. It's charming, inexpensive, and we've yet to have anything there we didn't like.
