Description: Modern environment in a neoclassical property constructed in 1886. We've forged a relationship with Nicaragua's best coffee producers to provide you with an excellent cup. High altitude, shade grown boutique crops yield coffees with a crisp and balanced acidity, roundness, sweetness and rich chocolate-like brews. These farmers know what they do. The poetry is ever intended at Espressonista. On your table we serve local, slightly smoked ham. The brie, the camembert and manchego are also from Masatepe and Matagalpa. Organic lettuce, baby asparagus and other greens from Ticuantepe. Chez nous, we know where everything comes from. We bake our own pastries and breads, make our own ice creams, brew our own beer. We love food, drink and good company. Join us!

Refreshing in its simplicity yet meticulously prepared, everything we tried at espressionista was exquisite. Everything from the setting, service and ambiance was impeccable. A must if you are in Granada. Merci pour la merveilleuse soirée.

“By far one of my favorite places in Granada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

I am a resident in Granada and love a lot about this place. The food is alway perfect. The service is a touch above anything you will find in Nicaragua. The location....while some may complain it is not centrally located, I for one prefer it because it is not in the craziness of the center of town. The environment is great and oh, for not being a coffee drink, I find myself having one or two lattes just because they are so good.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Wow. Such an amazing place. Amazing service, delicious food, great old colonial building, tastefully decorated. It's chic and simple, and very relaxing! We are staying 4 days in Granada and will have breakfast and lunch at Espressonista as much as we can!
Don't miss it!

“Worth Every Penny for Amazing Good Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

If you appreciate gourmet fresh baked bread, organic ingredients, and the best desserts you will ever taste, then I recommed you visits this gorgeous restaurant. All the food is prepared with love and the service is great, the owners Andres and Zoltan personally tend to all your needs. The iced tea is freshly brewed as you order it. The decoration is very European,a colonial house, all the details from the pitchers to the trays, to the original metal ceiling and the original chandelier, an indoor patio, words cant describe the ambience, you have to see for yourself. and by the way you can also shop for one of a kind items, like jewelery and clothing. A Must SEE.
