Food here is so good. I'm from NY and the bagels are great. They aren't NY bagels but they are delicious bagels. The hot chocolate is absolutely fantastic. No shitwater (aka swissmiss) here. It is best for a lunch. Now they have a lunch menu as well that includes your beverage and has a few options. It is pretty well... More

I visited La Chatia for lunch. I tried a Portobello sandwich and a pesto pizza. The sandwich was delicious! The pizza was ok. The only thing I'd mention is that the sandwich was to be accompanied by vegetables (I expected them to be steamed), and it was surprising to see my plate arrive with carrot and celery sticks. That's more... More

We stopped in mid-morning and both ordered omelets with avocado and veggies. Nicely prepared, good portions, and served with hot peppers, black beans, salsa and tortillas. Not far from the Parque Central.

The coffee was "OK" but loved the scones and bagels at the coffee shop/bakery. I loved the painted stairs...very artsy and the ambiance was comfortable. Didn't have a chance to try the restaurant, but they have a great reputation especially with those visiting from outside of Guatemala. The coffee was more expensive than some places.

Kellie thanx for your comment. You are right about our coffee, right at this time we have been having some troubles with the coffee producer and we are aware of it. Next week we will change the coffee bean and the region so you can come try one, our courtesy ;) We hope to see you here and thank you... More

The staff is always really accommodating and really warm! I love bringing work events to their salon. Such a good breakfast (I do really appreciate their bagels) and always an awesome juice of the day. Really fun space.

Get the refresco del dia always. My favorite is the zucchini sandwich on a jalapeno bagel but I have never had anything that was not delicious here. Order extra of their ranch-like sauce (costs Q5 extra) but it is SO good. Be sure to have a cookie at the end as they are just as delicious! If you order guacamole... More

Thanks for your review soccergal! Well, we pass pita chips with the guacamole because we produce them and thought it combines good, which I think it does ;) the good thing is that you can always change it for the corn nachos. To be honest our granola is not that pricey when you compare it to good granola or granola... More

Good place to meet expats living in Xela learning some español. Good food and coffee with the unique charm of the historic district of Quetzaltenango, makes this place an adventure for those travelers that what to meet others in similar journeys. Great and friendly service is a plus here!
