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.

We ate at the Cafe Condesa a few times during our visit to Guatemala and always found the food to be very good as well as the service. The cafe is in a great location just off the main square and the gardens make for a very relaxing atmosphere.

My husband and I ate here twice while we visited Antigua. We had both almuerzo and la cena here. Both times we were comfortable, treated well, and given delicious food. although there were many other customers service was good. the atmosphere is charming with a lovely courtyard

This is one of the coffee shops located in Central Park in Antigua. It is more like a coffee bar, a little smallish. Their coffee is very good though, but the place is rather utilitarian with little ambiance. However if you are in a hurry and need your java fix pronto, then Cafe Condesa is the place to go. BTW, the place is affiliated with Condesa Restaurant just next door that serves proper food and is quite nice inside. The tip: if you did like their coffee and would like to take some home, you can purchase a variety of their beans inside the restaurant at the register window (and the price is quite reasonable).

This is a good place to try early on since its near the square. The restaurant setting itself is very nice and peaceful in an inner garden area. The menu has a lot of options. The food is pretty good but not outstanding, though we did not have a big meal there. I also thought the same of the service, good but not outstanding.

I'm glad you found our location convenient, right on the Central Park in beautiful Antigua.

I hope you'll come back again on your next visit and try a big meal here... soup, salads, appetizers, sandwiches, quiche and an amazing array of desserts. All made on the premises from scratch from the best ingredients we can get. Farm fresh organic eggs, real butter, heavy cream.... our cakes and pies are to die for. Our drinks are delicious, too... from a whole menu of espresso drinks, chocolates, and loose infusion teas to fresh fruit smoothies and natural homemade "refrescos". We hope you'll decide we are outstanding.

Warm regards,

Located directly across the street from the Parque Central Cafe Condessa offers pleasant
suroundings and a good breakfast. The American's meet there on Thursday mornings around 8'ish. So if you miss home and want to get the ins and outs from those that live there, it is worth a trip. If the gringo's meett there every Thursday, how bad could it be? I was on a mission trip and always love to visit the beautiful park area.

Thanks for the recommedation and for noting that a group of Americans--- primarily veterans -- meet here on Thursdays. It's a great place to visit any day of the week, but you can get a reading on living in Antigua from the Ex-Pats on Thursdays....

We look forward to your next visit and thank you so much for doing mission work here.... we truly appreciate folks who come and help others in need.

Warm regards,
