“One of the best eateries in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

There's a lot to love about this little cafe. The bagels are delicious and great to take home if you have somewhere to be before 8am when this and most other breakfast spots open, especially the jalapeño ones.

If you've got the morning free, breakfast is a great value. The omelettes are reasonably priced around 30q and come with coffee a cookie beans salsa and a bagel of your choosing. They are delicious as well.

For lunch, the sandwiches can be a little on the small side for the price (30-40q). Pro-tip: get the eggplant sandwich on a jalapeño bagel and ask them to add chicken for a little extra. It's tastier and more filling then either the eggplant or chicken options would be on their own.

To top it off the service here is extremely friendly and prompt. Easily one of my favorite spots to eat and use wifi.

“Awesome restaurant/café!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This restaurant has really, really, really great food, baked goods, and drinks. For a meal, I would suggest the omelets, which are served all day. The baked goods are super delicious, too, especially the croissants, either plain or drizzled with chocolate. And the coffee drinks are amazing. It's the best espresso I've had in Xela, and they make amazing Americanos, Lattes, and Cappuccinos, accompanied by tasty little cookies.

“Best bread in Guatemala!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

We had lunch at the Zona 1 location, and it was honestly the best bread I've had in Guatemala. The sandwiches were excellent, and my daughter loved their chocolate chai cookies!

“Yum, yum, yum! ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013 via mobile

I really enjoyed this place. I had the salmon/wasabi bagle sandwich and it was delicious, though the wasabi dressing should be much stronger. I could hardly taste the wasabi and wouldn't have identified it if I hadn't known. The bagel itself was excellent. I also had their coffee and it was great - strong, smooth, and very drinkable. The service was quick and friendly. The environment could be slightly cozier.

Hello Chris, very thankful for you comment, as a matter of fact thank to your opinion we just made stronger the wasabi paste, I agree with you and appreciate your feedback. We have recently hang more stuff in the walls and added plants so the place is slightly cozier :D We recently remodeled the bakery at Zone 1, more than welcome!

“Best restaurant in Xela”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013

Scrumptious sandwiches with awesome ingredients. Lots of great options for vegetarians, omnivores, and carnivores alike, on homemade bread and bagels. Have also recently introduced salads and breakfasts. Top picks so far are portabello with avocado and gruyere sandwich, and tofu and grilled vegetable sandwich. Not to be missed!
