After a great pasta dinner, we stayed for hours enjoyed some good wine and listening to the music.
Great coffee in the morning too.

“Surprisingly Good Food!”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We didn't expect to encounter such good food! First night's dinner was pasta primivera - fresh, local veggies. al dente pasta, with a light cream sauce (not the thick alfredo sauce we're accustomed to in the States). Delicious! For lunch one day, someone suggested the hamburger - another pleasant surprise! Tender, tasty and huge! And fries were crisp and not greasy! Breakfasts could be scrambled eggs (sometimes with ham), pancakes, french toast, and always fresh cut-up fruit. Juice was always fresh-squeezed, even fresh squeezed strawberry juice. Solomon's Porch takes appropriate steps to ensure all foods are safe to eat. Smiling, attentive servers ensuring your satisfaction. Some nights there is entertainment by a local band, or perhaps just a jam session .... fun! Oh, yes, the Cowboy Cookies .... don't pass on these. What is especially appealing is the awesome good work these folks do helping locals and surrounding villages who are in need. You can't go wrong with a meal here!

“Great food, great atmosphere, great music, great cause”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

After I was home for a week (in Florida, USA), I was ready to fly back all the way to Guatemala just for Melanie's Cowboy Cookies. They are amazing. The food here is very good and if you want to relax to some good ole rock and roll - there is not better place. Proceeds from the restaurant go toward many good causes including building homes for villagers in the mountains around Panajachel and supporting health care and nutritional needs for the community. I will definitely return to Porch de Solomon.

“Great food, awesome people, best spot in Pana!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I loved the nachos, the coffee, the music, the internet, the people, and the atmosphere! Was here supporting the Porche's mission to build for the impoverished and ate/hung out MULTIPLE times, always excellent. Super nice folks, attentive, gentle, and helpful along with the high quality service and taste. Also, there are some tables out front where you can really get in some perfect "people-watching" in the buzzing heart of Panajachel.
