They close earlier than I would l like, and the food isn't special, but the coffee's decent and the location and layout are wonderful for watching the goings-on in the Parque Central. You'll definitely run into world travelers here, if you sit long enough.

When in Antigua, this is where I start my day! There is nothing better than grabbing a cup of coffee at El Portal and then heading across the street to sit in the Parque Central. Great coffee can be found all over Antigua. I like...More
