I read about this cafe in a garden and it was only a few blocks from my hotel, so I wandered to the edge of the tourist area to go to it. What a pleasant setting! There's a nursery, garden, cafe, souvenir shops and small...More

My husband and I really enjoyed breakfast here. I especially recommend the crepe filled with fresh fruit and then topped with yogurt and granola. The grounds are beautiful. Be sure to give yourself enough time to explore! There is wifi.

My husband and I recently ate lunch here and were impressed by the quality of the food, the fast service and the pretty setting. Their bread is homemade and delicious! After eating, there are a few artisan stores to shop in by the restaurant.

Exceptionally great food for lunch and brunch. We looked forward to eating here every day. Mid-afternoon coffees and food were highlights of the trip.

Delicious fig pie for dessert in enchanting garden. Another favorite is lasagna made with tortillas. My favorite drink in any form in Antigua is lemon aid made with agua mineral con gas y Yerba Buena. Total health.

After touring the nursery (vivero) and enjoying seeing lots of beautiful tropical plants, we met some friends for lunch at the restaurant. The barbeque special was excellent if a bit pricy (65 quetzals). The natural juice drinks were quite good: banana, tamarind, raspberry, and guanabana...More

Restaurant in a nursery. Restful spot with decent food. I had a chicken quiche; didn't care for it much. Some of our friends had a sandwich with chicken mole sauce; seemed better.
