i love this place!! stumbled upon this gem while on a missions trip in antigua. AWESOME coffee, wifi... felt like i was in america so definitely brought back some of the comforts of home. the guys there are also amazing.. they were kind and friendly and my team and i loved hanging out there and just stopping by to talk to them on our way to the hospital that we volunteered at.
i really miss that place!!

By far, the best cafe I found on my 5 months in Central America. I spent 6 weeks in Antigua in Spanish school and would use Refugio at my coffee/internet stop. After filling a couple frequent buyer cards, I got to know the staff quite well.

This place is run by a few extremely friendly guys who are always cheerful when they see you walk in (or just walk by!)

As I said, they keep it simple. They do coffee in a few variations, tea and nothing more. And they do it perfectly!

I cannot recommend a visit or twenty to this place enough!

This is a great and very friendly coffeehouse. They roast and grind their own beans--the beverages are simply amazing. Service out of this world
