“It's easy to become a regular here”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

The food is great and the prices are fair. After your second time the staff recognizes you. On Tuesdays there's usually some entertainment or a presentation about what's happening in the country. A great place to meet the local expat community.

“The place to be in Antigua”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Like the name says, it's a café. So you can't expect a big party.
What you can expect is friendly staff, great food, nice and innovative drinks and a cozy atmosphere.
Also the open mic nights were quite an event and a reservation can be made.
I miss a place like this in my own town :)

“Chilled out vibe that has live music that amazed me”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

Amazing place with a laid back atmosphere with the most friendly and cheerful staff I have ever know. Food is great and very careful with health and timing in their dishes. A place I could just sit back and have a coffee and feel at home.

“How sweet and funky is the Rainbow”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a lovely blowback to the 1960's .. I could be at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz California..browsing used books and chatting with the OM wearing staff. They owners are very socially conscious and invite the local NGOs to present on the projects in the early evening. Later the music will start and the bar will fill. My favorite meal is the eggs Florentine...such a good way to fuel up for the long day's walk thru this 16th century city..
