Excellent lunch place

Soloman's Porch has great sandwiches andfried chicken. Feel good about eating there because some of their profits go into educational projects benefitting the Guatemalan people.

This was my third visit to Panajachel and the food at the Porch is nothing short of wonderful. It's a little like home cooking but with the Guatemalan flair. The pasta primavera is just wonderful - always makes you want to ask for more. To complement the food is a warm and welcoming atmosphere. From the wait staff to the... More

I have visited this restaurant multiple times and have enjoyed each visit. The menu is simple, but the food is fresh, safe and very tasty.

I hate to repeat the prior reviews but Solomon's Porch has the only (and therefore best) American style nachos in Pana. Real cheese, diced tomatoes, good meat. They are legitimately good (not mind blowing amazing but well worth four stars). Based on other reviews we also had the wings. They are a good compliment with the nachos.

Great food and great staff in Panajachel! The prices are excellent and the menu is diverse enough to appease everyone. Probably the best burrito I've ever eaten...and I'm from Texas. Would recommend!

We spent just over a week at Hotel California and having Solomon's Porch Cafe on the ground level was awesome! We had breakfast and dinner there several times throughout the week. And even though Panajachel is full of places to eat, Solomon's Porch was our favorite! The live music was a great addition to our dinner as well! Be sure... More

The wings here are some of the best I've had, I still get cravings for them when I'm back in the states!! The nachos are delicious too. The music is fun and makes for a great casual environment to hang out!

After a great pasta dinner, we stayed for hours enjoyed some good wine and listening to the music. Great coffee in the morning too.
