Concierge.com's insider take:
Chef/owner Jacques Chretien has opened (and closed) other locations around Los Cabos, including a much-loved candlelight, crystal, and linen restaurant in the Corridor. He's now concentrating on this artsy bakery and bistro in San José's historic district. The sweet smells of crusty baguettes and buttery croissants fresh from the oven draw a prework crowd savoring frothy cappuccinos and more leisurely types lingering over egg and chorizo crêpes or huevos rancheros. The menu and pastry displays change during the day, with lobster soup, ricotta ravioli with foie gras foam, burgers, and escargot on the Bistro lunch and dinner menu. Red and white linens cover tables in a casual café setting that encourages lingering, though space can be tight at lunch. Stop in anytime for coffee with handcrafted ice creams, chocolates, and devilishly tempting tarts and tortes.—Maribeth Mellin
