“Border's cafe : Delicous Frozen Macchiato!”
Review of Borders

Borders
Cuisines: Central American
Restaurant details
Reviewed 16 August 2012

I stayed 4 days in El Castillo and I think I went to Border's Cafe at least one a day, for lunch, dinner or just their exquisite frozen coffee.
The Border's Cafe has now moved more in the inside of the town and we learnt that the owner (Jamil) is now building a bigger place where he will be able to grow is own pineapples and many other fruits and vegetables in the garden. He is really an authentic person.
We wish him all the best for this news adventure.
Do not hesitate to go to Border's Cafe if you visit El Castillo, which is a lovely place with many thing to visit.

when we stayed in El Castillo, we loved spending some time, relaxing at Borders Café, drinking coffee or one of their delicious juices. Food is also great, lot's of vegetarian options.

Overpriced. Food ave. I've tried it several times. The staff seemed pompous. They seem to take advanage of their location at the river landing.

the best spot in town for a good coffee or meal. They are now in a new location very close to the Hotel Victoria. Great veggie dishes and most of all, friendly staff

Whether in town for a few days or a few hours of sightseeing, Borders is a must stop! Conveniently located at the dock. this restaurant has the perfect second-floor location for gorgeous river views and watching the daily lives of the locals. - all with a casual, open-air ambiance, and internet access for approximately $1 an hour. Aside from a full coffeehouse menu (trust me - after a few days in country, a full-bodied cappuccino hits the spot!), they offer a wonderful and affordable menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner - all available to go, if you have a boat to catch. The English-speaking owner is a superb chef, offering up the most traditional flavors from across the country. And for the shrimp lovers, you'll definitely want to sample the giant river shrimp - which are the size of small lobsters, and loaded with an unforgettable array of fresh garlic and traditional seasonings. Definitely recommended!
