Description: Modern environment in a neoclassical property constructed in 1886. We've forged a relationship with Nicaragua's best coffee producers to provide you with an excellent cup. High altitude, shade grown boutique crops yield coffees with a crisp and balanced acidity, roundness, sweetness and rich chocolate-like brews. These farmers know what they do. The poetry is ever intended at Espressonista. On your table we serve local, slightly smoked ham. The brie, the camembert and manchego are also from Masatepe and Matagalpa. Organic lettuce, baby asparagus and other greens from Ticuantepe. Chez nous, we know where everything comes from. We bake our own pastries and breads, make our own ice creams, brew our own beer. We love food, drink and good company. Join us!

I stumbled on this place while walking to the cemetery in Granada on a recent trip with a friend. We loved Granada and thought this was one of the true gems. We were both stunned by how beautiful every detail of the place was. The artwork, the interior courtyard, the furniture, the tin ceiling/chandelier. Everything was gorgeous. We only had... More

I loved this little spot in Granada a just a short walk outside the center. The garden and interior is so beautiful - great ambience and great ice coffee if you are not up for dinner or lunch. A must in Granada

Oh no! you´ve outed our Kombucha! Oh well, it´s as good a time as ever. Yes, we are going to serve our own home-brewed fermented tea. But we still need another month of tinkering. So watch this space!!! Thank you for writing a lovely review about our café. We greatly appreciate it. Andres More

Had the most fantastic dinner here the food was simply delicious and the host couldn't have been more welcoming. We came back for breakfast, bloody Mary's & cake a few days later which were equally delicious. Couldn't recommend more highly - a must to visit in Grenada.

This is the best restaurant in Granada for dinner or just stopping in for coffee and dessert. I had a great dinner here - nice candle lit atmosphere and good food (beef cheeks bourgonion, and asparagus with hollandaise). The coffee is roasted by the owner and I had a wonderful berry Pavlova dessert. The atmosphere is charming and so much... More

We stopped in here randomly while on a (terrible) tour, and it was like stepping into a gorgeous design magazine. Just beautiful. The owner was very friendly. All we had were a couple of glasses of Flor de Caña, and we didn't stay long, but it was long enough to make an impression. Lovely place to hang out. Also, wifi,... More
