Love the food, coffee and gift shop here. The restaurant has a beautiful garden to relax in, and the gift shop supports a lot of local artisans.

Beautiful place, with great vibes. Food is very fresh, and delicious! It’s priced similar to local restaurants that don’t look crash hot. Good gift shop and great local library and wifi.

A stunning consciously-driven cafe/restaurant. Amazing staff and owners with big hearts. There is a little shop which has products made by girls who are being supported by UpNicaragua through their education and mentorship. ❤

Loved this cafe. Some funky artwork and products for sale to help impoverished children. Come and spend your tourist dollers in Granada. Great breakfast whilst chatting to the owner.

This cafe was our choice for dinner twice during our time in Granada. I was traveling with a large group and they were able to accommodate us. Plus, the menu had several items for vegetarians and vegans so everyone at our table found something tasty...More

I am not aware of any rented rooms at the Garden Cafe. For long term stays I would suggest contacting either GPS or the Vista Mombacho Apartments in Granada.
