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.

Great food and great desserts. It's a nice place to share with your significant other. It's a quite place with great colonial ambient. You'll love it.
Don't forget to carry out something.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

You can't spend more than a couple of hours in Antigua without hearing the name Cafe Condesa at least a few times! Find a map and make your way over, you'll be glad you did!

“SUPER nice . It is a GUAT place with good food .”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Guat place = you may need to ask for extra things you might need / during busy times ------ IF you come to Antigua and miss Condesa you will have missed " THE CLASS PLACE "

“Great breakfast/coffee place but not so cheap”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This is THE place recomended in all travel books, I believe that in terms of place given the nice inside patio, this is a nice relaxing place. Plus, the patries are really nice and very fulllfilling.

At the same time the breakfast and coffee are nice, but they are far to be cheap.
