Oh we have some vinyl records on the wall and graffiti that makes us cool right? Scruffy little bar on sunrise side of town. Does serve a good range of veggie delights. If you want to sit in a dirty shack and pay normal price...More

Fantastic coffee and smoothie which was full of fresh fruit. Great hammocks to lie in outside to chill with a drink and read your book. Ladies working there as well as the owner were all very friendly and welcoming.

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.
