Here are my picks for Santa Fe!...

A good coffee shop is at the top of my list when traveling or settling in to a place. For me, a space where I can work, eat and enjoy a cup of high quality Joe is quintessential to brainstorming and research. Living in San Miguel de Allende, I naturally have some favorites …and so, in no particular order, these are my most beloved haunts.
