They only do coffee and they do a damned good job. WiFi, chill space and, most importantly, best coffee ever.

The Refuge is a place I discovered during my last visit in Antigua a year ago and it has everything you could expect from a laid back little coffee shop. They roast local coffee in their little shop and it smells heavenly. The prices are...More

Hey Jim, I sent you a personal message as well. Read it when you can? I think you have to be registered as the owner of the business here, but doesn't look like you are. Without that, they won't see this nor answer I don't... More
