It was a hot July afternoon and they had very nice refreshments, snacks and pastries. Lunch items are available late until late afternoon and prices are very reasonable. We stayed on the first floor's patio but they also have seating on the second floor overlooking a very nice garden. Food is OK and service is great. They also have a... More

I went there on a sunday and it was packed with bikers and families. I had some great french toasts. Their granola and banana is toasty and tasty! The menu also offered juices,eggs,sandwiches and more! It was not expensive. I paid Q50 for the granola, the french toasts and a pineapple juice. I will go back there again sometime.

This is a restaurant with many years in business. Ideal for breakfast. With a bakery shop selling serveral types of breads, delicious! Every time I visit Antigua, this is a must pass by grabbing some breads. Low prices.

The food was ok, but certainly nothing special, and was a bit overpriced for what it was (the House Special Breakfast). The building itself is very nice and very historical. That certainly helped. It was very crowded and they don't... More

I have been visiting Antigua for thirty years. The one place you can rely on to resist change and continue to offer great value and a great cup of coffee is Dona Luisa's. It is the first place I head to when I get there.

This place comes high recommended among locals. It is spacious, the restaurant is a historic house. You can choose to eat in the outdoor courtyard or inside near a balcony. And priced well, so locals can afford. Although the place is packed during Sunday brunch, service was pretty quick. The coffee was bold, I tried a cafe cortado and it... More
