If you've had enough of overpriced (by Nicaraguan standards) Granada, Cafetin el Volcan is definitely the place you need to visit! It may not look like much compared to beautiful restaurants like the Garden Café, but the food is delicious and the prices quite reasonable....More

I found everything we tried here great - though my girlfriend didn't like the tiste (our first time trying it) because tiste is gritty. The quesillos are great as well.

A great small family-owned eatery. Definitely try the quesillos. The staff is friendly and they have a wide variety of dishes for good prices.
