Reviews / Restaurant

Nestled near the edge of El Jardin in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, Cumpanio serves freshly baked treats like donuts, almond bread, cruffins, Oaxaca-style chocolates, pastries and croissants. Made by the French pastry chef, the croissants are likely the best you’ll find outside of Paris. It’s fitting the word “Cumpanio” is Latin for “where the bread is shared.” Take your breakfast to go in the square, though expats might stroll by, spot your Cumpanio bag and tell you where to get less expensive fare nearby. But the price is worth sinking your teeth into the flaky croissants. Pair with a cappuccino or espresso for a morning of people watching, or stay at Cumpanio and sit by the window. The restaurant also offers lunch and dinner, as well as a bar to sip cocktails at nightfall.


Sure, Cumpanio is a touristy bakery that draws a line out the door, but that doesn’t mean it’s not well-worth the stop inside. Grab a silver tray, load up on your new freshly baked favorites and make a morning of getting to know the locals and expats. The hills of San Miguel de Allende make it gloriously easy to walk off your breakfast and explore, or take the free shuttle to the nearby Botanical Gardens (El Charco del Ingenio) and savor the rest of the morning light.
