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.

It is a nice place to sit and drink coffee and use the free wifi. They also have bacon and a nice bacon sandwich.

We had breakfast at Cool Beans after enduring a monsoon the previous night. The rain was so bad that we ended up having a dinner of crackers and other snacks in our hotel room.

The rain left parts of the street along the malecon flooded and some sections of the street were closed. We were walking, so it really didn't matter. The café has an entrance off the malecon at the far end of the island. Due to that location, it is quiet and peaceful.

We had a light meal since we planned to eat lunch before leaving the island. Hubby and I both had a yogurt bowl with fruit and granola along with coffee. The coffee was fine, but we didn't think it was anything special. The yogurt was also good, although some berries would have been nice in addition to the melon, banana and papaya.

We stayed in Flores for about a week and we had every breakfast and the vast majority of our dinners at Cool Beans. Best value and food on the island. Internet is fast and there are comfy hammocks with a view of the water. We also rented their canoe out for an afternoon. Wonderful place, don't eat anywhere else if you're in Flores, especially for breakfast!!

It is a nice place with a lie view. The breakfast was rich and tasty. The price is reasonable and it's worth to try while in Flores

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.
