At breakfast time, locals can be found at Cumpanio (Correo 29), a sleek new gourmet bakery/café just off the Jardín, the city’s main square with its signature pink Gothic-style cathedral.

This hip little watering hole is also open for lunch, light supper, and nightcaps. For lunch, the expat art crowd hits Café Rama (Calle Nueva 7), a funky outdoor establishment that has a 1970s Berkeley vibe with Pop Art decor and a menu of organic soups and salads, light entrées, and downright decadent desserts (cappuccino brulée, braised two-layer lemon tarte), cafe-rama.com.

For dinner, among the current top tables are Casa Allende (Calle de San Francisco 25), with innovative Mexican food created by celebrity television chef Eduardo Osuna; Dos Casas (Quebrada 101), where chic little salons and a terrace provide the setting for the star Mexican chef Dina Butterfield’s simple but sophisticated specialties, doscasas.com.mx; Mivida (Hernandez Macias 97), featuring the cross-cultural collaborations of Mexican Greta Ortega and Italian David Garibaldi, mividarestaurant.com; and The Restaurant (Sollano 16), where Californian Donnie Masterton, who trained at New York’s Montrachet, specializes in “global comfort food,” served in one of San Miguel’s prettiest patios, sollano16.com.

If a proper drink is what you are after, many consider the super-smooth Casa Dragones tequila to be the best. Served along with some 120 other labels at the 1826 Tequila Bar at the new Rosewood resort, it’s also available with arguably the best view in town at the hotel’s rooftop Luna Tapas Bar and at the Matilda hotel bar.

But at approximately $32 a pop, this tequila is for slow sipping, not for doing shots; casadragones.com. And should you feel peckish late at night, La Sirena Gorda (Calle Barranca at corner of Calle Huertas) is a happening little cantina, dating back to the 1920s, and known today for its fish and surf-’n’-turf tacos.
