Went to Cool Beans for a drink at 11am and ended up staying for five hours! It's a great place to sit; watched the football. Nachos were good.

We ate lunch here one day, and loved the garden setting for the restaurant. It is sort of a 1960's hippy kind of ambiance (which this 70 year old hippy liked). Food was OK, but not memorable.

Visited here after arriving in a hot Flores following on from Tikal. Needed a cool drink in a relaxing atmosphere and this place was just that. Great range of smoothies and large serving too. View out over the bay was nice also.

The restaurant itself has a nice vibe and great view. We ordered the pancakes and eggs with beans for breakfast. The food was average and portions are small for the price you pay. There are better options on the island.

Search Cool Beans, Flores, Guatemala and you'll find a few references online about this restaurant. It's run by a wife/husband couple. Janette is employeed with a local NGO, Concern America, that provides health care training in Guatemala. Her husband is from Guatemala and is training the be an architect. He cooks and she often helps with serving. They've got two fantastic girls and their restaurant is often a hangout for locals after work. Looking forward to having this place added to Trip Advisor so I can post a great review.
