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.

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

This cafe could be in Kathmandu, Goa, Cusco, La Fortuna, Koh Phang Ngan, the Khao San Road or any other place where "travellers" congregate to wear unoriginal tie-dye clothing and soak up free wi-fi. That said, Cool Beans serves decent coffee and the management is relaxed and friendly. It's a fine place for a cup of coffee but you probably... More

My brother and I have 8 hours to kill between checking out of our hotel/hostel. I've been (unsurprisingly ) disappointed in the alcohol scene in Belize as I don't enjoy tropical cocktails made with cheap booze or light lagers. I'm a Southern California IPA devout beer snob who will simply not drink if my only options are a crappy domestic... More

Fab little place for breakfast with gorgeous hash and eggs/omlette. They gave me endless coffee refills, had good black tea and played cool tunes. Amazing place

Good beers, good music (not the nightclub hits that you hear every days everywhere) and good food! If you are tired with lager beers and want to try good beers, this is the place to be! Food is simple but good and cheap. We went 2 times during our trip in Flores. 100% recommended!!

There's no too many options for coffee in Flores. Cool Beans serves normal coffee with the decent price. Good atmosphere. Love it :)

Description
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.
