Not only is the coffee very good and the desserts delicious, Mike treats you like you are a friend. Sit at a table for some quiet, or at the counter and be entertained.

This is one of the most popular coffee shops in Panajachel especially with the ex-pat population. Run by Michael, he finds, buys, roasts, grinds, and serves the best beans in Guatemala! And then washes the dishes and loves every minute of it. We hope to meet you soon over a cup of coffee and hear your story!
