Baja California

Establishment neighborhood
Baja Roasting Company
Carretera 19, KM 63, Todos Santos
Geographically speaking, this now famous cafe is actually in the desert near Pescasdero, about 45 minutes from Cabo, making it a great spot to pull over for an iced latte on the way to Todos Santos—just know that the incredibly chill outdoor patio is kind of hard to leave. As good as the ambiance is, it's the beans, which the Canadian expat owners source from a family farm in Puebla and roast in a massive Probat, that make a simple cup of coffee here into an experience. Make sure to grab a bag of beans for the road.
Cynthia Fresh
Plaza Caracol on Paseo Malecon, San José del Cabo
When you’ve spent a few too many meals indulging in tequila and refried beans, head to Cynthia’s for fresh, vegetable-heavy salads and light fish dishes. It’s also an especially good choice for vegetarians and vegans, who sometimes have a hard time finding dishes they can eat on Mexican menus. The seabass and guacamole are both must-orders, and there’s a lovely market on the side if you’d like to do some cooking of your own.
Santo Cabo
Alvaro Obregon, Centro, San José del Cabo
We first stumbled upon Santo Cabo’s hand-poured activated charcoal and eucalyptus-scented soaps while browsing the shops at Flora's Farm. Turns out, their newly opened freestanding shop near the Cabo San Lucas marina is home to more than just these organic, locally-sourced, hand-poured soaps. For example, there’s a range of baby products, avocado massage oil, calendula face balm, and something called sand soap, which calls on Baja Sur sand as a powerful exfoliation agent.
Eduardo Sanchez
Calle Blvd. Antonio Mijares, San José del Cabo
Stop by any day of the week and it’s likely you’ll find Eduardo himself manning the floor at his cavernous showroom-slash-workshop. The pieces are made predominantly of silver and incorporate Mexican, Italian, and French coins (a Sanchez signature) into the designs. While undeniably statement making, the rings, bracelets, and cuffs are not at all gaudy—a great option if you want to come home with one great piece of silver jewelry.
