Sorry to disagree with everyone - but the iced coffee was basically a large glass of milk with just a touch of coffee flavoring. Staff would not correct the drink, but said I could pay to order another with less milk.

Found this place - only a few doors from my hotel - on my last afternoon here. They know how to make SMALL STRONG lattes - every other place makes large weak ones. And the pastries are good as well

I mostly drink lattes and iced lattes so my coffee place reviews tend to center on those. These folks make a perfect iced latte with a strong coffee flavor, not too milky, and no need to add sugar (for me anyway). Just right.

This is my favorite coffee spot in Antigua. I went by every morning as it was on my way to the garden for Spanish classes. The staff was always friendly.

Great location to go and take a break after visiting La Merced church and convent. The staff is very friendly, coffee and cakes are good and so cheap. The place is very quaint.

At 12q, this is a great spot right near the church and arch to grab some caffeine. This was our last spot before headed back home and I'm glad we could squeeze it in.

I was looking for a coffee place in this side of town. The coffee was good plus, service was efficient no small talk. The crowd was very eclectic. WiFi was suppose to work but did not.

Simple place with good view to the plaza and street life. Nothing fancy but coffee taste great. Plus good croissant and that's it. All set in colonial building with great vibe .

We tried the iced coffee which was good. Not too creamy or sweet and with a good amount of coffee taste. Friendly service and good prices. Free WiFi if you need it too and clean bathroom.

Epic coffee, fair prices and lovely friendly staff. Fast WiFi - highly recommend a stop off here. We’ve done a LOT of coffee stops in our few days here and coffee here definitely the best we’ve found so far

We are a very small shop with such a good coffee, located right in front of La Merced church, one of the architectonic icons of this colonial city. Tree blocks from the central park and one from the famous arch. We specialize in espresso brew, prepared in the traditional Italian way and using only hundred for cent Guatemalan coffee beans, grew and harvested by small coffee producers. Our recommendation: Espresso, Capuccino and Caffelatte and if you like cold coffee drinks, try our famous Ice Mokaccino.
