Review of EL Gran Cafe

EL Gran Cafe
Ranked #3 of 7 Coffee & Tea in Matagalpa
Restaurant details
Reviewed 7 August 2016

An amazing array of choices for your cup of coffee, a fantastic breakfast (we had crepes, and they were delicious), yummy dessert and the very best hot chocolate on the planet (according to my kids). The restaurant was comfortable, had WIFI and was easy to find (take the street that borders the main cathedral on the south side, and go east 2-3 blocks).

It is a beautiful place. With excellent quality of coffee one feels a kind atmosphere, clean and a confectioner's. Good sign of the Internet and soft music is nice. The air conditioner is optimum. I am sure coming back.

We had high hopes from the reviews but unfortunately did not enjoy the food. Ordered the Greek salad and a turkey and cheese sandwich. Neither were very good. Also ordered hazelnut lattes and the hazelnut syrup was sitting at the bottom and we had to stir it in. Go to Barista instead.

El Gran Cafe is a great European style coffee shop located quite close to the Cathedral/ Central Park area of downtown Matagalpa. They make perfect specialty coffees as well as Americano style breakfasts and desserts. They have good bench seating adjacent to windows and the restaurant is air conditioned.

We were able to buy a couple of pounds of coffee beans from the owner.....beans we are now savouring back here at home. Great meals complimented with some of the best coffee we tasted in the entire country. That's a combination that's very hard to beat and is a perfect way to start the day.
