When my plane touches down in Guatemala my mind turns to my first stop at Cross Roads Cafe. I made my return visit this morning and it is as good as ever.
In my first review, which got botched up, I compared this iconic place to the famous Rick's Cafe in the classic movie Casablanca. This review only furthers that perspective. Mike plays the role of Rick and us patrons visit because it is comfortable and the hub of socialization for the town of Panajachel.
I placed my order for a suitcase (I exaggerate) full of coffee for holiday gifts back home. Mike's coffee is requested by my friends as many consider it to be the worlds best. I suggest stopping in and placing your order and returning the next day to pick it up.
Today, I had a carrot cake that was worth a celebration. Everything is made by his wife and I have yet to have anything I didn't like.
You may walk into CrossRoads Cafe a complete stranger, but you will leave having made some wonderful friends.
You're better than ever, Mike. Thanks for making a great cup of coffee.
