The cafe and patio are both lovely! It was a great space to sit and read. The coffee and frozen drink that we ordered were also delicious! For lunch, though, we both got hamburgers and were a bit underwhelmed especially for the price. However, service was very attentive and friendly. They didn't have the type of fries they advertised and... More

Casa Ixchel is the real thing--local food and coffee, super service, and a great selection of gifts to take home. I have visited it on two separate Copan experiences this past year..I highly recommend it.

Casa Ixchel is the real thing -- coffee plus food in the heart of Copan, run by Katia, who grew up on a local coffee plantation. Her excellent English makes for a hospitable visit. Take several pounds of her coffee home with you.

I love Casa Ixchel. It is my favorite place in Copan. The menu has several options with a wide variety of delicious drinks. The coffee is roasted on site with the beans coming from only a couple kilometers away. It is a family business where you can feel at home and appreciate all the small intracacies they devote to the... More

I came here for lunch -- a salad and a frozen mocha. The salad was large and fresh, the coffee was delicious, and the servers were incredibly friendly!
