The Best Brunch and Breakfast in San Miguel de Allende

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of brunch. During the week, I rarely eat a big breakfast as I’m always getting the boys ready for school, running out of the house, and then back again to squeeze as much work in as possible before picking the boys up again. But the occasional weekday brunch with a close friend or leisurely weekend breakfast indulgence with my boys is definitely at the top of my list of favorite things to do.
