Description: Café Sky is THE place to be at dusk in Antigua. Climb the tight winding staircase to the upper terrace and you can watch the sun go down over the town with a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. The bar underneath, with a covered roof but open sides, is also a nice place to relax with very comfortable seats, subtle lighting and a view towards Iglesia San Francisco and Volcan de Agua. The staff are attentive and there is an extensive menu (including all-day breakfast). They also have possibly the best cocktail drinks in town.

“Good food, good people, and a great view. So good I went back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

This place is set on the eastern end of Antigua, close to one of the famous ancient churches. They buy their eggs locally and their bread comes fresh from the small bakery down the street. I rarely go to a place twice, but on my last morning in Antigua, I wanted to go someplace where I knew I could fill up on good food for a good value before traveling on. I sat at one of Cafe Sky's rooftop tables and soaked in the city against the backdrop of a cloudy volcano.

Recommendation: whatever you get, make sure to get bacon with it, along with a bloody mary or one of their generously-portioned smoothies.

“Average food and a bit costly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

This is a great escape, with great views. The menu wasn't anything special and was a bit expensive for Guatemala.

Great patio, there are two different terraces. They have wifi, staff is always super friendly. Definately a great place to hang. The best onion rings that I have ever had in my life.

“Drinks on the roof---beautiful view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We only had drinks, but it was a beautiful night with a wonderful view. The service was a little slow, but it was a busy night and we were in no hurry. It is worth giving this place a try..
