Cafe Rama in San Miguel de Allende is one of the most charming finds in this charming town. The decor is rustic/retro Mexican pop art with Chinese accents. Think Texas dude-ranch owner meets Warhol meets Mao in Mexico to discuss art over a sumptuous brunch. Or think an interior designer thought this up over brunch and some reefer. However it came to be, it’s lovely and the veggie juice is awesome.
The salt and pepper shakers on the cafe tables are..to die for. Two figures hold pistols and look like they are about to count off paces for a duel. They’re not so steady independently, probably from drinking too much, so they stand more stable when back to back. They have magnets embedded in their backs to keep them upright against each other. It’s a good trick for drunk people, too.
