Wonderful Dining Experience at Café San Antonio

Garden of Café San Antonio
Looking for a good and friendly San Miguel restaurant? You will be charmed by the lovely garden atmosphere of Café San Antonio, located at Refugio Sur #24, Col. San Antonio. But it's the food that really makes this place stand out as special.
The Café San Antonio menu features a variety of homemade dishes including blintzes and pastas. The chicken vegetable soup is reminiscent of something from Grandma's kitchen and practically a meal in itself.
Although one of the owners is Ukrainian, you'd think you were dining in Southern Italy while feasting on their pasta dishes. I especially enjoyed the linguini with chicken and mushrooms.
Difficult to eat dessert after such a sumptuous meal, but I had to try the flan, it being my favorite. I've had it all over the world and especially every part of Spain. You might call me a flan epicurean. Café San Antonio's flan was definitely up to the challenge. Rich and creamy with a touch of orange. I quizzed the chef on the ingredients. I thought one must be Cointreau. He assured me that liquor was not an ingredient but would not divulge the recipe. Regardless of whatever the unknown ingredient was, it made the end result fabulous.
The final tab on our sumptuous fare was very reasonable while the warmth and graciousness of the owners added to an already enjoyable experience at Café San Antonio.
