Description: Search Cool Beans, Flores, Guatemala and you'll find a few references online about this restaurant. It's run by a wife/husband couple. Janette is employeed with a local NGO, Concern America, that provides health care training in Guatemala. Her husband is from Guatemala and is training the be an architect. He cooks and she often helps with serving. They've got two fantastic girls and their restaurant is often a hangout for locals after work. Looking forward to having this place added to Trip Advisor so I can post a great review.

I had coffee there twice and the place is great. Good quality coffee, great looking place, OK prices and a nice atmosphere.

Offers the best coffee in Flores, plus the usual perks for backpackers: WiFi, on location movie rental, food, hammocks, sofas, tranquility. Highly recommended.

A bit more pricey than some, but they had good coffee and refilled your cup. Prices were cheap compared to the US.

I try to eat at different restaurants when travelling and my only regret is that I did not eat at Cool Beans more often. The breakfast was very good and quite reasonable. I ate there for dinner one night and was very impressed. The view from the outside patio overlooks the lake and compared to the rest of Flores, is relatively quiet. Be warned though, the washroom has a vine roof and being 6 ft tall my head became entangled. I would heartily recommend this place for both quality and price.

I've eaten breakfast at this restaurant 7-8 times in the past and have always enjoyed the food there. The meals are hearty as well as cheap. The atmosphere is very nice and they offer free wi-fi too. I recommend it to anyone who goes to Flores.
