“A magical little place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Having a coffee at the Crossroads always brightens up my day. All coffee varieties are excellent, and the bartender is the tip of the cake! I LOVE the Cheesecake, Best in Town, and the Carrot Cake, my mouth waters at the thought of them.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013 via mobile

Our interpreter, and friend, highly recommended we stop and have coffee with Mike and Adelle. What a nice experience and what fantastic coffee! Liked it so well we bought 10 bags for home. If you have a little time, make sure you stop in!

“A great experience in coffee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Heard about this place from my dentist who asked that I bring him back some coffee during my visit to Panajachel. Our interpreter led us to the cafe which was helpful as it is certainly off the beaten path. Loved the atmosphere. The owners were great and gave us a tour of the famous back room. Took home enough Amazing Grace beans to share and enjoy for many months. A nice place to relax and visit with other tourists and locals.

“Amazing fair trade coffee and the most wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Mike and Adelle will turn your head around about coffee and life in a few short minutes. First off, the fair trade coffee is excellent - perfect roast, generous pours and what aroma. Mike is a walking coffee roasting encyclopedia. Crossroads Cafe has a generous, open, infectious spirit which pervades everything they do. The love shows in every cup they brew. And you're guaranteed to meet some great ex-pats who know their coffee and have their hearts in the right place. Don't miss this place. It really is that good.
