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.

“Great Pancakes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

We sought out this cafe after reading in our guidebook that they did great breakfasts.

We were certainly not dissapointed. Great breakfast. There are quite a few choices on the menu varying from local to continental. The pancakes were very good and the coffee well brew too which made us very happy customers.

The view over the water together with a relaxed, slightly hippy atmosphere and pleasant service make for a good morning.

We would certainly recommend having breakfast here. There was free Wifi.

We came here for breakfast each day for a week. Loved the food, view, atmosphere and free coffee refills. Brilliant spot in Flores.

“Go find yourself among the wonderful”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This place is full of tat, lots of little tacky memorabilia, political graffiti etc. When we first entered the cafe, the lady sitting on the step did not greet us. There was no attempt to engage until we sat down. I loved the place, but I think maybe we hit the wrong time, or the wrong person. I enjoyed looking around at all of the strange knick knacks.
