4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

A very nice place, friendly staff and a wide variety of coffees available. The ideal place where to stop for a break while strolling around San Cristobal

“The best coffee in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

You can go there eyes closed. The 3 times we took coffee there we have been very nicely surprised. The setting is very nice and cosy. And perfectly ubicated right on the pedestrian way leading to the Guadalupe.

“Coffee professionals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

hi,
i have been several times at Carajillo, these guys know what they do,from the cultivation process to the preparation.They have a small coffee shop only to drink a great cup of coffee , also a place where you can choose the beans that they can grind and take home and get great advise about the type of coffee taste you like. Their restaurant is also good but they stand for the quality of their coffee .Once all 3 places were closed as they were going to the coffee harvest to see the process, not many coffee shops would do that.Plus they give professional courses and free tasting on Wednesdays

“Best Coffee in San Cristobal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014

This place has amazing coffee! The best I had in all of central america, and I really make sure I seek out the decent coffee places. The food as well is fantastic. All of the egg dishes are amazing, but their omelettes, the salad in the parmesan crisp and the chicken panino are absolute standouts.

We came to this place 3 times in 4 days because I guarantee you won't find a better cafe. With meals priced between 40-60 for breakfast, it's good value as well. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

“Best Coffee!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2014

You cannot go to San Cristobal and not have a coffee from Carajillo. There's a restaurant and a coffee only place in the mall. I preferred the coffee at the latter.
To me Teo is their top barista. He enjoys making his coffee and if you speak Spanish you can ask him about everything and anything to do with coffee.
If they sold sweets from 'Oh La La French Bakery', this is the closest human kind would get to heaven on earth. No joke!
Highly recommended.
