The first impression upon entering this place is that it was thought out and created to relax and enjoy unique dishes. In fact, the menu has some especially unique options, such as Lomo de Cerdo en Vigoron, the Thai Ossobuco or the Indochinese Meat Salad. They also offer some special veggie dishes. The care and efficiency with which they serve... More

We had dinner here. Good service, maybe a bit on the slow side, but so is all of Granada. :). Food was good, but not outstanding. We had an beetroot and goat cheese salad and then oxtail pasta (was ok, needed to ask for cheese) and a stew (cannot remember the exact name) which could have used more seasoning. Great... More

Enjoyed dinner in the garden-like back of the Restaurant. Service and food were of very high level and the concept based on local / organic Nicaraguan products is a role model that more places should adapt (all over the world). Would go again anytime.

I own a restaurant so of course a huge part of any trip is choosing where to eat. The Espressonista café was recommended to us by a chef at a resort we had stayed at before visiting Granada. When I typed it in google- all the wonderful reviews came up, including their website with their menu, and I was sold.... More

We had been recommended espressonista and it did not disappoint. The service was amazing, super friendly and attentive. The atmosphere was great too, relaxing and romantic. We shared the ceviche and rabbit pate to start and they were incredible! Would have gone two nights in a row if they weren't closed on Monday/Tuesday. Would definitely go back!

We have only had a few restaurant meals in Granada in our three days here, but we've come here twice. Two things are can't miss: The Ajo Blanco chilled soup is made from an almond milk, with a hint of garlic, a drizzle of olive oil, and many little chunks of watermelon. It is sublime. I can honestly say I've... More

What a nice atmosphere! Good drinks, delicious nibbles (wished we could have stayed for dinner as all was very promising), very friendly owner and great service... Both great as a restaurant for lunch/dinner and as a coffee shop in the morning/afternoon. We could have stayed there for hours. If ever back Granada, this will be one of the first places... More

It's my third time at Espressionista in the last couple years and it just keeps getting better and better! By far my favorite place for dinner in Nicaragua (also great for an afternoon break with excellent coffee and pastries).The food is by far the best you'll find in Granada, the choice of wines is good, and the atmosphere is just...

The food at the place is amazing. Owner and staff were great. Found this place on my last day in Granada, wishing i would have found it sooner. It would have become my afternoon hang out spot.

Description
Modern environment in a neoclassical property constructed in 1886. We've forged a relationship with Nicaragua's best coffee producers to provide you with an excellent cup. High altitude, shade grown boutique crops yield coffees with a crisp and balanced acidity, roundness, sweetness and rich chocolate-like brews. These farmers know what they do. The poetry is ever intended at Espressonista. On your table we serve local, slightly smoked ham. The brie, the camembert and manchego are also from Masatepe and Matagalpa. Organic lettuce, baby asparagus and other greens from Ticuantepe. Chez nous, we know where everything comes from. We bake our own pastries and breads, make our own ice creams, brew our own beer. We love food, drink and good company. Join us!
