veg-friendly cafe

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice, Bar

This is a relaxed bohemian-like atmosphere and a popular tourist hangout--you likely will not find any locals here. They have one of the most extensive vegetarian menus in Antigua, featuring hummus, falafel, veggie nachos, tofu teriyaki stir fry, salad, among others. There is a small bookstore up front and the cafe hosts regular music, open mic, and educational lecture events.

There is an open-air seating area in the middle of the restaurant, which receives a lot of sunlight, along with covered and enclosed dining areas.

Happy hour is from 5-7pm.

I was there in Jan. 2011. International cuisine with a few great vegan options.
Three great dishes were: Israeli Falafel dish, Tofu stir fry with rice, and the Rice and Beans.

I really enjoyed this place. Interesting vegan food has been hard to come by in Guatemala and not only does this place have many options, they are also very varied. I had the tofu teriyaki stirfry, which was very good and I was really surprised that the texture of the tofu was so firm and crispy. My friend and I also shared the veggie nachos, sans cheese and cream, and they were really good.

I wasn´t able to make the Tusday night free lecture but they are doing a series on gangs in Guatemala, so I would expect all the lectures to be pretty interesting.
