Nice spot when walking in the cool morning, sit down and have a cup of hot coffee. I tasted Guatemala breakfast (eggs, black beans, salsa ranchera, bread, juice) plus expresso Q44. Good to try.

About three years ago we visited Antigua and we went to cafe barista. We returned to eat there every single day. This time the costumer service was horrible it was more or less from the country that I come from . I do not why but I think that they should review their service and try to improve it .

Cafe Barista is one of a few that is open at 6 a.m. Excellent omelettes for 43-45 qtz. Cafe macchiato caramel is very good. Simple latte is just 10 qtz. Supreme omelette with black olives, ham, roasted peppers, cheese & cream sauce is a gourmet food! Baileys cake is for sweet tooth (28 qtz)! Very fast service in the morning,... More

I loved this place during my stay in Antigua. Great coffee and staff. Plus, you can grab a window seat and people watch in the central park.

Went to the place at the corner of the park a few times, and they serve clean, healthy food; problem is they have DIRTY, RACIST mouths and do not recognize some Americans and African-Americans know Spanish. I went with 2 African-American friends and noticed that we did not get waited on at the table for more than 15 minutes. So,... More

Stopped in just for a small chocolate calente one night. Almost $3US for a tiny cup that was nothing like a good Guatemalan drink. Ok it's at the park where everything is pricy, but if you go to El Sol next to cafe condesa you'll get the real deal. Medium cup con leche for q20. Will not return.

It is a nice coffee shop in the central park of Antigua, the coffee wasn't my favorite and the prices weren't that good either.

Wonderful coffee shop on the corner of Parque Central in Antigua, perfect location ( also for taking photos during Semana Santa when you don't want to be standing in the crowd outside). They have great coffee selection, cakes, snacks, paninis. Please add this coffee shop to the restaurant list so I can review it
