First Review by cmbarber

delicious vegan meal! - Edit

I am so thrilled to have found this vegan friendly option near the beginning of my trip! Francisco was warm and friendly, and the service was good.

I loved the vegan sopa de Camota (sweet potato) and the vegan chililaques- the vegan sauces on here were muy delicioso! My chocolate dessert was frozen rock solid, so it was very difficult to eat, which is the only reason I am not giving this gem of a place 5 stars.

I will definitely eat here again while I’m here!

Pros: quiet ambiance on outdoor patio, many vegan options to choose from

Cons: my dessert needed to be thawed before serving it

Outstanding!!! - Edit

Gourmet vegan and vegetarian meals in a very casual and charming setting. You don't have to be vegan or vegetarian to love this food!
Warm and gracious service!
The most delicious vegan food we have ever had!
I would give this restaurant 6 stars but the app will only let me give it 4 because it's not totally vegetarian or vegan( they serve shrimp)

visit at Nectar in San Miguel de Allende - Edit

Everything was exceptional, we have a super picky grandma and a finky grandson who both ate every last bite in delight. We loved the ambiance and the lovely store where you can buy all the plates and accessories they use to serve you and much more. The tea selection is very original and the waiters are funny and kind. We would give them 5 stars but they still offer 3 or 4 fish options. Do not miss this place😉

Pros: allmost everything is vegan

Cons: no cons to think of

Vegetarian's Delight - Edit

This is by far my favorite restaurant in San Miguel! I wanted to give it 5 stars, but Happy Cow wouldn't allow it. We have been to this wonderful city many times and marveled at how easy it is for a vegetarian to find delicious food here. On this trip, however, I was delighted to find this little gem of a place on our first morning. I had the most delicious tofu scramble I've ever had accompanied by lovely little breakfast potatoes (served with a yummy lemony sauce) and toast. They have an extensive tea menu and infuse teas in many of their dishes and sauces. The French press coffee was excellent. The second time we came here was for lunch, and I had the black bean burger. It was also delicious. My husband enjoys salmon and other fish and has been very happy with the dishes he has tried. The service here is very friendly and usually excellent, except one time when they were a little short-handed. The main guy had gone to market, apparently. As soon as he returned, everything returned to normal. The setting here is delightful, with just a few tables scattered around a lovely patio filled with hummingbird feeders. It is so fun to eat, watch the hummingbirds, and enjoy the lovely sounds of birds. It is probably best to try this restaurant on a weekday when it won't be as busy and will be quite peaceful. I will return again and again so that I can try more items on their extensive and very vegan-friend,y menu. Again, I love this place!

Pros: Excellent vegan and vegetarian foods , Friendly service, Lovely courtyard setting

Cons: Can get busy on weekends

What a gem! - Edit

We liked our lunch here on our first day so much that we came back for breakfast the next morning during our short 24-hour stay in SMA. We got different things both times and enjoyed them all. I don't remember seeing much meat on the menu, so I'd say this is one of those places that are more "carnivore-friendly" than "vegetarian-friendly". Aside from the food—which was straightforward yet healthy and delicious—I also truly enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere, the natural décor, and the teas of course. Service was warm and excellent. Staff is well-trained, professional-looking, and most importantly for us the Spanish-challenged, speaks English. As a bonus, you may even find hummingbirds feeding and hovering next to you in the very same courtyard. Now, I'm a bit of a nitpicker, but still I really couldn't find any fault during my two visits. This place is a must visit!

Pros: delicious food, excellent service, cozy atmosphere

Best vegan breakfast spot in S.M.A. - Edit

San Miguel was a little challenging for vegans, so this place was an oasis. We ended up having breakfast there 4 days in a row -- they will serve some things off their lunch menu if you ask, so check that out as well. We particularly liked the "meatball" sandwich, which is lentil-based. Many of the dishes incorporate flavored teas as an ingredient.

There seems to be a little confusion with staff between gluten-free and vegan, so do ask if something seems like it should be vegan but isn't labeled so. It's all garden seating, so if you're are there during the rainy season you may have to get stuff to go.

Staff spoke English well enough to make everything easy.

Pros: Great garden seating, Just a few blocks from the town center, Inventive dishes

Cons: Some gluten/vegan options are lost in translation, Not open for dinner, Little seating in bad weather

Sophisticated and Delicious - Edit

The garden patio setting complete with a hummingbird joining us while we were eating made the entire experience very enjoyable. My daughter and I had the vegan lasagna and it was delicious. It had both depth of taste and texture and reminded me of a roasted vegetable ratatouille with a light but "creamy" sauce. We would definitely eat there again on another trip.

Pros: Friendly staff fluent in multiple languages, Delicious vegan food, Wonderful garden patio setting

A LIttle Bit of Heaven - Edit

This restaurant serves some of the most delicious vegan food I have ever tasted and I am 71 years old! I did a complete write up on the restaurant so please read that as I don't really want to repeat everything! The food is lovingly prepared, very sophisticated - they use a lot of tea infusions in their sauces. The service is attentive and friendly. The dishes and serving pieces absolutely beautiful. And all of this is a courtyard garden setting.

Pros: Delicious beautiful prepared food, over 35 vegan o, Tranquil lovely garden setting, Friendly knowledgeable staff

Cons: Serve tuna and salmon but even those dishes can be, No other cons what-so-ever

Delicious food in a tranquil oasis - Edit

I love this place and went twice on my recent trip to San Miguel de Allende. Set in a peaceful courtyard with hummingbirds hovering overhead, this cafe is a real gem and you should definitely visit. Although not 100% vegan, there are many vegan dishes marked on the menu and everything we ordered was delicious and had obviously had a lot of thought and passion put into it.

Pros: Delicious food, Beautiful setting, Central location

Cons: Not open in the evenings

vegan soup sampler and hummingbirds - Edit

What a delight to find this quiet courtyard restaurant with so many interesting vegan options, many infused delicately with teas. The soup sampler was quite good and just right for a midday snack. And it warmed our hearts as well that they provide nectar for hummingbirds, which came to feed within3 feet of us. In general the bird life is sparse in the area, so this oasis is a blessing. We will go again this week to try other dishes.

Magical - Edit

Nectar is a magical spot in a magical town. Tucked away near the eastern border of the Centro district, it is well worth the visit. Small tables set up in the courtyard of the tasteful gift shop are surrounded by vegetation and hummingbird feeders! You are treated to hummingbirds flitting in and out to sample their own snacks! The manager takes great pride in their offerings, and well he should. Perhaps not as elaborate as a Japanese Tea Ceremony, you can tell that special care is taken in the preparation of not only the teas, but the delicious light fare. The vegan pate were served with delicate breadsticks and crackers. All food items have a tea element. The artichoke/mint pate was my favorite, served in tiny glass pate jars. The blueberry infused tea was served with not sugar for sweetener, but the simple syrup nectar they offer the hummingbirds. If it didn't serve fish it would have 5 stars hands down. Magical.

Pros: Magical atmosphere, Friendly and knowledgeable staff, Excellent food

Cons: No dinner, Does serve fish
