Description: 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.

Best veggie sandwich we've had on the road. We spent a ton of time here as our hostel was a little uncomfortable. Great breakfast, lunch and dinner options. Agree with everything Hani M. said.

This place served us a great breakfast on our first morning in Flores. The staff were polite and friendly and the place offers free coffee refils which is nice. The best part for us was the backyard that looks out to the lake. With hammocks and chairs in a garden packed with plants and trees this is a great place to go and relax and sit for hours.
The owner of the place was there on our second visit in the evening and was very friendly and welcoming. Enjoy this little treasure on the island town of Flores overlooking the lake. Great!

We sought out this cafe after reading in our guidebook that they did great breakfasts.

We were certainly not dissapointed. Great breakfast. There are quite a few choices on the menu varying from local to continental. The pancakes were very good and the coffee well brew too which made us very happy customers.

The view over the water together with a relaxed, slightly hippy atmosphere and pleasant service make for a good morning.

We would certainly recommend having breakfast here. There was free Wifi.

We came here for breakfast each day for a week. Loved the food, view, atmosphere and free coffee refills. Brilliant spot in Flores.
