The food was wonderful, the prices were similar to those of other restaurants in town. The bathrooms were spotless and I would eat there again if I return to Antigua. Truly a fabulous eatery!

“Everything done right”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Just a few seconds walk from the central park is a small cafe with a simple menu, a colorful pastry case, beautifully packaged gifts and delightful owners. The sandwiches are served on perfectly crusty bread, which is the bed for high quality, well-balanced, delicious ingredients. Anything you order for dessert or choose to take home from the pastry case will be sure to make your tastebuds dance. I've had a lot of french macarons, and I have to say, outside of France, these are my favorite. I've been in Antigua for 3 days now, and I've had Metiz for 3 meals. If they were open for breakfast, it'd probably be more like 5 meals.

“Yummy macaroons”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

We stopped by for a snack and bought 6 different favors of macaroons. The best thing is that they are gluten free. They are not the best tasting macaroons I ever had, wish they were a little bit more moist, other than that great favor.

“Great deli, friendly owner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

We have been in Antigua for close to a month, and have been to this deli 3 or 4 times. The sandwiches are incredible, with the best crusty bread and meats.

The owner is very friendly, and will come to the table to answer any questions. On one of our visits, I noticed another dinner drinking bright red juice. the owner was kind enough to bring me a small sample of the agua de jamaica, and explain how its made from the hibiscus flower. It's a great flavor, which the tang of cranberry.

Love this place. Don't miss it!

“Deli Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

Metiz is a fabulous deli past the cathedral in Antigua. They make sandwiches that are equal to the finest in Paris. I had the salmon y Italiano, made on delicious bread.
The price was very reasonable for what you get, and perusing the store while waiting was a delight. They have spices that make great gifts for those back home, packaged beautifully.
A gourmet delight for sure.
