We liked it all! Delicious sandwiches, terrific Burritos, sweet staff, gorgeous butterflies, organic lettuce, right next door to our hotel. This place is a MUST! Cleanest kitchen in San Pedro probably along with Ventana Blue.

I was traveling with a group of North Americans and this was one of the places identified as safe for our delicate stomachs, and it turned out to be my favorite. Try the cilantro soup! And the tipico breakfast. It was all delicious and new to my happy palate.

In addition to the lovely, comfortable, and welcoming garden atmosphere mentioned by others, the owner and staff treated me like a friend. It's true that it takes a bit longer than you might expect to get your food, but somehow, it wasn't a hardship to sit in that lovely environment a few minutes longer.

One day, I didn't leave enough time for lunch so I stopped in and explained, asking what I could order that would be quick. They suggested chicken quesadillas and they, too, were delicious... and I was in and out in 15 minutes.

They are also committed to the community. The talented chef responded to a request by a local community group to provide training on hygienic food preparation for visitors from North America. I particularly appreciated that, being one of those North Americans.

One more thing - be sure to check out the beautiful and fun artwork - the poles of stacked teapots and cups, and the beautiful table mosaics. Cafe la Puerta provides a feast for all your senses.

Just wonderful stop to have lunch in the garden under a blue sky, with tasty food and a cold beer. The service is slow but don´t mind it and just relax and chill in the tranquility setting.

These folks care and it shows: Caring service, food that is prepared with care - and it clearly tastes like it, and care in creating a nice setting - a lovely garden and patio. Even when they set up your meal on the table, it is done with care!

Great mix of Guatemala and international options for breakfast and lunch.

Highly recommended on all counts.

Good food and tranquility feet away from the chaos. We had rooftop lunch a few feet from buddah bar.
