Jack is a French traveller and a lover of gastronomy and culture. He has traveled throughout the Mediterranean, staying for 6 to 9 months in different parts of the world. He has passed through the California coast, then Oaxaca, and now he is in San Miguel de Allende.

Jacques offers very casual, comfort food that you can eat several times a week. The restaurant is located on Callejón del Pueblito 3A and is open from Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. On Sundays it’s open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. They offer Mediterranean food, but most of their dishes tend to be vegetarian or vegan, with meat as an alternative choice. Their goal is to eliminate meat from the menu. One of their particular special items are the pitas, made with sourdough. They can be filled with falafel—a common dish in the Middle East made with chickpeas or beans. Falafel has become popular in the West thanks to restaurants that specialize in Oriental and vegetarian food. They also have tandoori which is a mixture of diverse spices and widely used in the cuisines of India and Pakistan. There is a Greek pita with meat, and tzatziki, a Greek dressing based on yoghurt. There are fajitas with portobello mushrooms and quinoa (an ancestral grain) bowls. For breakfasts you can find avocado toast, a mushroom sandwich with sourdough bread and truffle aioli. If you are a wine lover, this is the right place. They are following the trend of natural wines from Guanajuato.

They also offer artisanal beer and hidromiel (mead)—a drink made with fermented honey. If you don’t like alcoholic beverages, don’t worry, you can have a basil lemonade or some iced tea. All recipes are created by the staff and all made on site.
