“BEST VIEW of Antigua!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

At street level, this place does not look like much. It looks like a smoothie shop wedged between two other businesses along Antigua's main plaza. However, once you walk in and start walking up several flights of stairs, you end up on a terrace with the most breathtaking view of Antigua I have yet seen. The food is pretty good- they offer a selection of sandwiches that are delicious and a good value, as well as fresh smoothies and crepes. Their mojitos are the best I have ever tasted! It looked like a green smoothie when they first brought it up, but when I tasted it I was in love!

Although it sometimes takes them a while to get your food to you (you order at the counter and one of them brings it up), it is well worth the wait.

“Great view and location OK service......”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I have been to this place a couple times and the view from the terrace to the central park is amazing, their food is ok and the service not so bad. It is a bit slow but with the views that you have from way up above you cannot complain.....

“Great view + reasonable prices + good food”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

Smoothies and crepes were very good and fresh. Prices were very reasonable for the location. The rooftop seating area overlooks Central Park and is a great place to eat and relax while watching the activities.

We ate there twice for "snack meals" and the quality was consistent. The service was a bit slow due to the size of the place, the number in our party (12) and the fact that they had to haul our food up three stairs to the roof.

WiFi seemed to work okay.

“Good coffee, tasty crepes”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

Tasty food and reasonably priced. Nothing special. Food was ok, I had crepes with Nutella and strawberries, was nice enough. Coffee was good. There are better places in Antigua for a little extra $$

“Delicious licuados and amazing view!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

The view from the terazza is the best you'll find in a restaurant in Antigua. The licuados are so refreshing and delicious. Service is really good, being someone who doesn't eat or drink things that sweet, was happy when they asked me if i wanted sugar in my licuado or not. The only thing i have to be negative about is that i was a a little bit disappointed when my breakfast arrived and noticed that the beans on my omelet were not home made. But definitely we'll be going back to enjoy the view and the licuados!
