Mike is an awesome guy! I went to Pana for a study abroad trip and Mike made Crossroads Café feel like home. The coffee was magnificent and there isn't a blueberry pie in the world that can compare to what is served here. I will...More

We spent a few weeks in Pana, and stopped by Mike's shop a few times. He's very friendly, the drinks are delicious, and the food (although limited) is fantastic as well. I'm especially picky about my cheesecake. Even my wife is only "allowed" to make...More

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!
