Description: Delicious, delectable, fresh, organic...everything homemade and locally sourced. Located on the Central Park of Antigua, Cafe Condesa has been serving locals, nationals and international tourists alike since 1993. It's three outdoor dining areas plus three indoor spaces provide a colonial setting in which to enjoy a meal or a snack. Breakfast is served all day long and our famous "bottomless" cup of 100% Antigua grown coffee has been a mainstay. Come early morning for breakfast, late morning for homemade chai and a muffin, lunchtime for a lovely salad and soup, late afternoon for coffee and cake, evening for a glass of wine and a quiche. A friendly waitstaff and a homey, relaxed atmosphere makes Cafe Condesa a home away from home. Three Cafe Condesa Express located around town, allow you to enjoy our many of our treats on the go.

This is one of my favorite places to get a bite to eat in Antigua. Great for tea.

Thanks for recommending our tea! Not only do we serve homemade chai, but we also have 5 loose teas to choose from. We hope to grow the selection this year, but for now, we are proud to serve green, pu-erh (red), jasmine green, white with vanilla, and black. Come back and visit and enjoy your pot of tea in our beautiful gardens!

The food at Condesa was tasty. The menu offers soups, salads, and sandwiches as well as a variety of coffee beverages and desserts. The cheesecake was very good.

With a full-time, well-paid staff of over 45, two kitchens producing all of our own products, and expensive rent on the main square, you can see why we are not the cheapest place in town... nor the most expensive. But high quality products and staff retention have been our major goals since we started back in 1993... providing our clients with lovely food in a lovely atmosphere and creating a stable workplace for our staff. We, too, think our location is fabulous and we appreciate your business! I thought it important, nonetheless, to share some background. Warm regards from the Land of Eternal Spring.

Thanks so much for your kind words! We love being right on the Central Park, yet tucked back into the quiet space of the multiple patios in colonial homes. We hope to see you again!!

It pains me to hear that the service you received wasn't top notch! We work with our staff on a regular basis to provide you with quality service and it's extremly disheartening to hear that a client went away dissatisfied. I hope you will give us another chance in the future.... our premier qualiity products should only be served with care. Warm regards from the land of eternal spring!
