I mean, I liked the coffee but the employee was kinda dry and talked to me like I was bothering him.

“Love the new location.”
Reviewed December 29, 2011

Refuge is a great place to drink coffee. In fact there are only two places worth their salt in Antigua: here and Tretto. Both serve coffee of the highest quality with passion and excellent customer service.

I love the new location. The extra space and couches make it that much easier to relax and waste an hour. Highly recommended.

“Pure Coffee”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

If you are looking a place where you can read a book and enjoy a cup of coffee with out the stress of the regular coffee shop's this is the place. Looking for something authentic here this guy's knows about coffee and the quality is one of the top.

People here ask you about the taste, smell and they want to know if you are comfortable with your coffee difinitely this is the place for good coffee. Thank you guy's!

“Coffee, as it is meant to be”
Reviewed November 24, 2011

My wife is a coffee lover. She can be particular when it comes to coffee. Out of all our travel on this trip through the Americas, she hasn't commented positively on many of the coffees that she has drunk. Refuge was different. She thanked the barista personally for the cup as it was that good.
