I was wandering around Huehuetenango looking for good coffee, then stumbled upon this place. They had a proper espresso machine and made me exactly what I wanted. They also have a nice selection of cakes and smoothies.

I have only been to their location in Plaza Polanco in Quetzaltenango, and only to buy cakes for birthdays and other special occasions. The other bakeries we've tried offer cakes that are damp instead of moist and so sweet they nearly curl your hair. It might seem odd that their headquarters are in Huehuetenango, but their baking skills rival anything... More

If you love cakes, deserts and baked goods, this is the place to go in Huehue. The have recently renovated the interior of the café and its even more enjoyable now. Cakes are excellent, so are the Frappés and Shakes. The baked goods like muffins, cupcakes or the special easter bread are delicious and most importantly you can keep them... More

We had lunch at Montel Alto in Chiantla, Huehuetenango, and our family loved the chorizos and longanizas, the Pollo en jocón, the tortillas, and the amazing variety of desserts! We ended up returning two more times, savoring the chicken empanadas, beef volovanes, relámpagos, fruit tarts, Nutella pastries, lemon pie and a host of other fantastic treats!

If you like cakes, great milkshakes, frappuchinos and coffee, this is the place. Right on the side of the central plaza in the middle of Huehue, I ended up going there almost every day during my one weeks stay in Huehue. After a day of touring the villages in the Cuchumatanes, what better way to relax than with a delicious... More
