This place is an actual refuge! You need to go and sit in this place for hours. The coffee is perfection and the people who work there really care about coffee, customers, this store, and life! TRY THE SIGNATURE - ITS RADICAL!!!

There seems to be more and more coffee shops popping up around Antigua,I was glad to see the refuge still here since my last last visit 2 yrs ago. The coffee was very good and the barista was very friendly

The coffee and staff here are amazing. They have an open mic night every Thursday evening that is sooo fun. Don't miss a stop at the Refuge Bar for sure.

Nice coffee bar with funky décor and friendly owners. The location is close to everything and the coffee is first rate.

Though this place received many high ratings, there seemed to be an undertone of attitude or indifference that almost drove me to choose another coffee shop in town. That would have been a misfortune!

A group of friends and I rendezvoused at The Refuge around 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. The barista was a friendly, efficient and quietly engaging guy. He knocked out our seven person order in no time. To a person we agreed this was certainly the best coffee of our entire week in Guatemala, and perhaps one of the best ever. And we could not have been more comfortable or felt more welcomed in the shop.

I know coffee enthusiasts can get a bit snooty. If you truly are snooty, maybe this isn't the place for you. But if you're a bit more grounded and open to a great coffee experience, this is your place in my experience.
