The BEST Cappuccino in San Miguel de Allende

In the last year or so, Carlos and Elicia opened Cafe Buenas Dias in San Miguel de Allende. It is on Calle Reloj, number 64, just north of the Library. They serve breakfast and lunch daily except on Tuesdays. It is is a charming, newly renovated small home with a open patio at its entrance and a tiny little patio with a pretty fountain on the wall towards the back.
One item on the menu worth mentioning is the banana bread. It is a healthy serving and oh so moist and delicious. Unfortunately, it is only offered on the weekends.  I have not tried the chocolate chip cookies, but they look pretty good too.  The scrambled eggs are perfectly cooked, not overcooked which ruins the taste of a good egg.  The potatoes with a hint of rosemary are a nice touch.
The cappuccino has to be the best in town.   The coffee is strong with the creamiest steamed milk ever.  The coffee is their own special mix of beans.  From Mexico City's Cafe "Punta del Cielo."  It is a blend of coffees from Veracruz, Chiapas and Oaxaca.  There is an industrial coffee grinder in the front room which gets your attention when grinding. Even if you live on the other side of the jardin (the main square), it is definitely worth the walk.  But doesn't that longer walk give you a pass to have that piece of banana bread?  Or that creamy latte? 
And for lunch (comida), you can not beat the chicken fajitas.  Check it out and tell Elicia that Robin sent you in.
