"We were introduced to this place by Pat, one of the persons behind this educational project, CECAP.
To reach this place you need to do the steep walk up to the village above the lake, or you can take a tuk-tuk. The cafe is located just off the main square. Once there, you get the best view of the v..."illage and the lake. The food is prepared by students participating in cooking classes, giving you the best of traditional food prepared under supervision and under best hygienic conditions.
Location is superb, neat and clean and friendly service by the young students.
Highly recommended, best value in town.

"My husband and I toured the CECAP building out of admiration and curiosity, because we had heard about the great things they're doing for their community through the vocational school, nutritional programs, and education initiatives.

The food was gourmet quality, even though it was cheap and cooked by a very young chef. I had a delicious eggplant and tofu dish and my husband had a bountiful, crisp salad; we also both got fruit and yogurt smoothies. What could be more perfect than perching in our seats overlooking both the incredible lake view and the fascinating local town; eating beautiful, scrumptious food for a low price; and even getting to be inspired by an organization doing good things in the community? Amazing; a must-visit for anyone coming to Santa Cruz!

Once you walk through a local sewing training centre, the restaurant is..." at end of the space, with spectacular view of lake atitlan. Food was cheap, typically around 30/35Q for a cook dish with amazing presentation. I peek into their open kitchen, it was absolutely spotless, and I see the young chef wear disposable gloves to prepare salad, And constantly cleaning when they are not busy, which shows they are really into their hygiene. We had the eggplant with chicken & tofu, the tast was rich, yet clean favour with red pepper, very healthy & yummy. We saw other chicken or burger dish come out with great salad too! this place has better food than a lot of the place in panajaehel, we have been back a few times while we stay in Santa Cruz. I believe they serve both ...
