This place has pretty much everything that you might be missing from home. From great bread and pastries to olive oil, Heinz ketchup, rice noodles etc If you need it then it's probably here.

This is where you go when you need something you cannot get at the market. Cheeses and nice bread. Good prices for imports.

The couple that owns and runs it make you feel like family. They have a smaller shop down on the main street but their main shop has everything you could want and if they don't they'll find it. Its on the right as you go toward the "market". Their Breads, and Pastries are all outstanding. They have American goods that... More

Sondra's is the best market in Panajachel. It's a little more expensive but totally worth it. We (The Brand Fam) are health nuts and foodies and always shop in great health food stores when we live in America. But when we moved to Guatemala we found it hard to find the healthy food items and eco-friendly products we had grown... More

This is a mini-market for the appealing foods products you can't locate in most stores....wide variety of goods....personally it's way too expensive but good if you're in need of something familiar once in a while....they sell fresh pastries and rolls daily....can't bank on the freshness tho...

Not a restaurant but a grocery store with absolutely everything a foreigner could want in Pana. Great selection of wine and cheese along with absolutely everything you might want. Actually there are 2 locations. One has an excellent selection of baked goods. Their cinnamon rolls are to die for and be sure to take home a baguette

Hard to evaluate as a restaurant when actually it's. A speciality market which serves coffee and tea, delicious bakery items and some sandwiches. In Panajachel, if one wants a selection of cheeses from all over the world or an exotic spice or excellent wine, this is the place to go. They have 2 locations in Pana. Yes, whatever you buy...

This packed little super market has carved out a niche catering to the ex-pat Gringos and tourists. They have been listening to their customers closely since they opened, and stock their shelves with delicious foods that satisfy the Gringo tastes. Their liquor and wine selection are fantastic and cover most wine producing countries. Their cheese and meat selection are amazing... More
