During our four week stay in Antigua, we visited this friendly place quiet often. The food was delicious and "the Gringo", a very friendly American, was very charming. The Sunday Churasco were my favourite dish and the cake, which is included in the set price menu, was very yummy too. In my opinion, best value for money in Antigua.

Our favorite place for lunch in Antigua. Great lunch specials.. and the only place to serve meatloaf (Fridays only), a must if you are craving some Canadian comfort food. The owner, Jack, is a great guy, and keeps the place impeccably clean, a must for travellers who need to be careful what they eat.

The cafe has a wonderful daily lunch special, seven days a week and also many breakfast options. Very quiet and tranquil. You can see the mountains surrounding the city and they have a beautiful patio garden.
