Refuge Coffee Bar is a great little place with excellent coffee from local sources and fair prices paid to the growers. Sweet spot!

A great discovery for the likes of a serious coffee lover like me. They are serious about their coffee and it reflects in their presentation of it. Worth the walk, and the sip of the fantastic brew.

The latte was perfect, looks just like in the picture! The carrot cake was good too. I wish they had more pastries and more tables with a view.

As a massive coffee enthusiast we rate this place at the top. The coffee was PERFECT. It reminded me of a 10/10 flat white from New Zealand. I got two because they were flawless. We will be back for more!

Stayed in Antigua for a month and visited here everyday for a large coffee and the occasional carrot cake (amazing by the way). Friendly staff, nice chilled atmosphere and great coffee. As a bonus, it is also cheaper than most other coffee shops in Antigua!

My wife and I stopped by and took a couple coffees to go. Then we went to Park Central to people watch and enjoy our coffee. After a couple sips we both looked at each other with dismay. Both cups of coffee tasted burnt. They...More

Just another coffee shop. Average like most. There are much better right at central park so you can save yourself the walk. The decor is less than average as compared to ohers. Service is OK but I{d argue so is it OK at Mcdonalds.

Hey Jim, I sent you a personal message as well. Read it when you can? I think you have to be registered as the owner of the business here, but doesn't look like you are. Without that, they won't see this nor answer I don't... More
