About
This is one of the most popular coffee shops in Panajachel especially with the ex-pat population. Run by Michael, he finds, buys, roasts, grinds, and serves the best beans in Guatemala! And then washes the dishes and loves every minute of it. We hope to meet you soon over a cup of coffee and hear your story!

Adele’s famous blueberry pie is a “can’t miss” when visiting Crossroads Cafe! And that’s after you’ve tried the cinnamon rolls and truly fabulous coffee. The sweets and coffee mixed with entertaining chatter makes for memorable Pana experience. You can’t go just once.

My wife enjoyed her coffee. I don't drink coffee so I can't comment on that. I do know a good cheese cake when I try one though, and Mike's wife clearly knows what she is doing. Even if you don't drink coffee or enjoy dessert,...More
