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.

Everything on the menu is tasty and fresh, great coffee and even better deserts! My boyfriend and I ordered a variation of salads, soups, sandwiches and deserts off the menu and were so pleased!

“Overrated!”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

For a place with a reputation of good breakfast, one
would tihink they could cook eggs sunny side up and
over easy. Thats how we ordered our eggs. In both
instances the eggs were well cooked, hard yolks. The meal
was served barely warm which was another turn-off.

Not sure if we would come back. For breakfast for sure
we will stay away.

Service was friendly. Coffee was good. Prices were not
ood value for breakfast!

So, so sorry! I so wish you had sent your eggs back to the kitchen to be re-done.
While we may not get something right the first time (sad, but sometimes true), we are totally willing to fix it right on the spot.

About value.... our breakfast has no "hidden" cost... you get a nice plate full of food and all the house coffee or national tea you can drink. Some places charge lower prices for the food and then add on a big ticket for the drinks. Not only is the drink included, but our cups are "bottomless".

I hope you´ll revisit for breakfast and also try another meal. All our goodies are made right on the spot and there is lots of variety for soups, salads, sandwiches, cakes, pies, snacks, etc.
Please give us another chance!

Warm regards,

Best oatmeal pancakes ever with homemade syrup, great breakfast place. Try the Cappuchino! They also have beautiful desserts and lots of food gifts you can take home.

“Simple food well done.”
Reviewed December 10, 2013 via mobile

It's not fancy food, but they have great breakfasts and lunch and have free refills on coffee which is unusual here. Their pancakes are great and there is a new flavor every day in addition to the regular selections. The setting is in a beautiful old house right on the Central Park. Oh yes, If you are not on a diet, try one of their great pies or cakes.

Twenty years ago we had to decide between being a fancy place in a beautiful colonial home or being a "home away from home"... we opted for the latter and never looked back. We aim to be a place where you can come again and again and never tire of the offerings... hence, the daily specials for soups, pancakes, omelets, and muffins. Everything is homemade on the spot and I can guarantee you the most important ingredient is love. We have a wonderful, dedicated staff who love their job.
Please visit us again soon!!
Warm regards,

“Our "go to" spot in Antigua”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Outside our rental house, this is where we spend most of our time in Antigua. A combination of its location in the heart of the town (right across the street from central park) and it's amazing coffee and refreshing juices (we liked the tamarindo and watermelon juice the best) make it the perfect stop between shopping and exploring. The food is good, but it is there desserts and drinks that keep us coming back.
