I wandered flores before choosing where to eat (easily done, it's tiny) and regret having chosen this place! It's a beautiful cafe with awesome decor, and it's hard to find veggie-rich food in Guatemala so I gave it a go. Unfortunately, the food was disappointing for myself and a fellow traveller I met. I had a curry which was basically... More

This Is my favourite place in Flores. The craft beer is amazing, it's got the best nachos and the hottest sauce I've had in Central America and a great host with a shrine to Che. It's really cheap and has top sounds . My only regret is I wasn't here longer to make the most of it. Lake-front too -... More

Epic meals that aren't small in portion. House cafe for 8q gets a free refill. Beautiful spot out the back on the lake front, would recommend.

Really really tasty sandwiches! We were so satisfied that we came back the next morning to grab some more for the road. The owner was so nice and made sure we get our food the next morning when the place was still closed! Also gave us (4 people) FREE Tshirt of the place. Recomendado a todos! Comida divina en un...

Tried to get breakfast to see if the coffee was better than the cappucino but it was still closed at 7:15 am.

I spent much of my two days in Flores at Cool Beans. From the juices (huge portions with little/no sugar added), nachos supremo (the best I've ever had), and special omelets, I have no complaints. The imported beer list is also impressive and cheaper than other places on the island. And finally, the waitresses and owner are very friendly, never... More

Nice breakfast and coffee with a great view for the equivalent of a few £/$. Great if you're travelling on a budget. Well worth a look

Search Cool Beans, Flores, Guatemala and you'll find a few references online about this restaurant. It's run by a wife/husband couple. Janette is employeed with a local NGO, Concern America, that provides health care training in Guatemala. Her husband is from Guatemala and is training the be an architect. He cooks and she often helps with serving. They've got two fantastic girls and their restaurant is often a hangout for locals after work. Looking forward to having this place added to Trip Advisor so I can post a great review.
