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.

Good Coffee. Service so so. Food was decent but not fantastic. Lots of folks on laptops so probably a good place for tourists to check email via wifi.

“just good basic food at good price”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

just good basic food at good price. On the ring road around the island, no view froom the gardens but a pleasant place for a quick bite rather than fine dining

“A lunch with friends”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were able to satisfy the disparate demands of five people. From vegetarian to carnivore, this restaurant has it all. The food was well prepared and presented, it even tasted good. We walked away full and our water bottles were filled for free.

“Great vibe, just great over all”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

So we got to flores, and had to wait before going to El Remate, we hadn't had breakfast and we were starving.. walking around we spotted Cool Beans' garden, looking out to the lake. It looked fresh, so, yeah, let's try it. We loved it, the food was great, great atmosphere and loved it's look. It's got it's own flare. After our trip around Peten, and before going back to the city, we decided we had to go back and have our last dinner there. Not disappointed, the food was great and the staff is really friendly. :)
A Michelada is always a MUST
