“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

Mike the owner is lovely has a great way of seeing life!
He buy guatemalan coffee before it is exported so the Guatemalans can enjoy it and at a fair price!
Here we had coffee with tourists and with people from Pana.
The carrot cake is delicious!
A great place with a great owner!

“As good as ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I walk in this place and feel like I arrived home.
The coffee is flavorful, the treats are sweet, and the conversation is welcoming.
Thanks for getting my coffee packed and ready to ship home.

“Amazing coffee and cake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Incredible carrot cake, great coffee and super friendly and genuine service/ owners.
Expect slightly higher prices for cake than in some other places, but definitely expect quality that's the best you've had even compared to places back home.
They roast their own beans, have several varieties available for purchase, and are happy to show you all the equipment and answer any questions, which was really lovely and interesting.

“Caffe porfavor.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

Only stopped in for coffee and loved it. It has the best cup in town. The staff was friendly and wasn´t bothered at all that I was there for a long time reading my book. Next time I come back I hope to try some of the treats they have.

“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.
