“Wonderful Pastries and Great Poker Game”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2014

If you want some fresh baked heaven or some great pasta and are in San Pedro go here. If you want to play a great game of Hold 'Em go here. The owners are warm and friendly, the coffee is great, and the atmosphere is very chill. Highly recommended,

“Great Ambiance, great food, average coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2014

I went there several times during my stay in San Pedro. Loved the ambiance. The lush garden setting with plenty of shade makes it nearly ideal place to relax after hard day of doing... nothing and a hard one to leave. And fast Wi-Fi won't exacty help you either to make the move;-). The food and service is great, but despite the place being run by real Italians, the coffee is surprisingly just average. Interestingly the place offers big and small coffee with the only difference (aside from the price) being amount of water they pour into your cup - I am tempted to call it ingenious if it did not seem straight cheap! If you still really need a caffeine jolt you can also get an extra shot poured into your cup, that is of course for additional price. So despite the lush garden, and family like atmosphere you won't be allowed to forget that this is actually a place of business and not your friend's porch. It puzzled me that in Guatemala where coffee beans are dirt cheap, such a big deal is made out of a few more drops of coffee...
