The cheesecake looks amazing and it tastes even better than it looks. Mike is a great host who loves the Lord and coffee!

The coffee is good and the conversation is even better here. Actually I like the cinnamon rolls and pastries the best.

This is a great little cafe to hang out and here about the area from the owner. The coffee was local and simply amazing but not nearly as good as the cheesecake which we ate at 10 am because why not.......

Best place to have coffee, it's amazing! The carrot cakes, the cheesecakes and brownies were excellent too! Mike is a great person. He's funny, friendly and passionate! Told us a bunch of crazy stories and even showed us how he made his coffee! Thanks again...More

Tucked away on a little back street I happily stumbled upon this jewel! I'm a true coffee snob so for me to rate any coffee place a 5 is rare! Exceptional service and fun as well. The owner is friendly, entertaining, generous with his servings...More

It is impossible to overstate how much we love Crossroads Cafe! This was our second trip to Panajachel, and we spent every afternoon (minus Sunday and Monday) drinking coffee and enjoying the company of other travelers from around the world. The coffee is excellent, the...More

This is one of the most popular coffee shops in Panajachel especially with the ex-pat population. Run by Michael, he finds, buys, roasts, grinds, and serves the best beans in Guatemala! And then washes the dishes and loves every minute of it. We hope to meet you soon over a cup of coffee and hear your story!
