So I had been following Fat Cat Cafe for a while on Instagram and became curious to see if the coffee is as good as the pictures make it seem. IT IS! When I had the chance to make a short trip to Antigua, I made sure to stop by. I got a basic latte (I always get latte's, if... More

If you want a nice brew with people that loves coffee and know about their methods, go to Fat Cat in Antigua. Great place for a cup or two. Just sit down and relax. They do their own roasting.

I visited this place frequently during my 3 weeks in Antigua. I tried several of the coffees, all of which were great. They have a large selection of drinks, and grind freshly on site using the best Guatemalan beans. The baristas are super friendly (and were patient whistle i practised some conversational Spanish i learnt at a Spanish school here).... More

They know their coffee here for sure. There's a ton of options and we bought a bag of whole bean to take home. My hubs got the siphon and I ordered the Japanese iced coffee. So. Good. Don't miss it!

We heard they had good coffee and it was good enough to order a pound to bring home. When we got "the pound" it seemed light but we had no way to check. When we got home we weighed it and it was about 10 ounces! AND it wasn't the dark coffee we ordered for our espresso machine! It was... More

I was in Antigua 4 mornings and made it here two mornings. My mocha was delicious. The staff was friendly. Nice space to sit and write letters.

Hands down the best coffee in town. Staff are passionate and knowledgable. There is a great selection of different beans to cater to every ones taste - of if you just want a regular old latte, they nail that too!

We were born into the world of Shop Coffee 1 out of April 2010 in a beautiful place called San Juan Comalapa, Chimaltenango, but as destiny and God's blessing we can now find in the cradle of one of the best coffees in the world , Antigua Guatemala. Do not hesitate to take a great cup of good coffee, we use a mix of cafes Acatenango, to give balance to the coffee cup and Antigua, which gives us as a result, excellent coffee !!! Thank a lot the collaboration of Tito Drums, Gaton, Farel, Friends and Family. "God Bless Fat Cat Coffee House" ..... Alguan reference as it started this dream
