Antigua is a beautiful colonial city in Guatemala full of charm, volcano views, endless cafes, and beautiful culture. It's a small city where you can walk around in one day. With cafes after every corner you turn, It quickly became one of my favorite places that felt like a dream.


I wanted to create a separate guide solely to the food and cafes in Antigua because it's where I spent the most time! Antigua is also a city that thrives off its daytime scene more than nightlife. As a coffee/coffee-shop lover, this place felt made for me, and for anyone who loves the same, I think this place is just for you. Not to mention, the coffee is top-notch and grown right in the country—something they take pride in.


I'm a vegetarian and found it quite easy to accommodate my dietary needs. I also eat a lot of vegan food and found it fairly easy. There are also alternative milk options at almost every cafe.



The cafe and coffee culture in Antigua is everywhere you turn. Being a big coffee lover - it's a great reason I love this city. There's nothing I love than sitting endlessly at a coffee shop.


Cafe Raiz is the cutest little coffee shop that you can't miss. It has the perfect little window seat looking out at the beautiful Antigua streets. Right across from Samsara and Antigua Bookstore.

Stumbled upon this cute little cafe on the main street (5a calle) and fell in love with its charm. The color scheme is right up my alley, the interior is gorgeous (look at that tile), and the coffee was great. This isn't a place to kick it and sip on coffee, but it's great for on the go


5a Calle Poniente 3B, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala


Artista De Cafe is my favorite cafe in all of Antigua. It's the most beautiful cafe that's simple, clean, and easy to get some work done or have a coffee date. The coffee and pastries are incredible. They have a beautiful outdoor area and great Wifi.


5ta avenida sur no. 34B, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala


This was the first place we headed while hunting for Guatemalan coffee, and they didn't disappoint. Delicious coffee, breakfast, and desserts. They have locations all over Guatemala, and it's a great place to get pizza as well!


C. del Hermano Pedro 12, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala


Fat Cat coffee shop reminds me of the ones all over Chicago. It gives me a comforting feeling when coming in. Great people and coffee!


No. 14 A,, 4a Calle Oriente, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala


One of my favorite cafes in Antigua. The people are friendly, the coffee is good, and the incredible pesto bagel sandwich.


Callejón del Sol #11 Antigua, Guatemala 03001, Guatemala


This cafe opened up on my last visit, and I fell in love immediately. It's beautiful, the owner is so nice and gave me many recommendations, and the coffee is great. I came here two days in a row. It was that good! :)


5 Calle Poniente.2 Antigua, Guatemala 10101, Guatemala


I love 12 onzas. They have a few locations in Guatemala City that I visited first and one location in Antigua.


4a Calle Ote. 5, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala


Cute cafe with great food and lots of vegan/vegetarian options.

Amazing little juice bar right in town. I always stop here when I need a little boost!


No.8, 6 Avenida Sur 8, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala


Antigua is filled with delicious restaurants and many plant-based and vegan options for people like me who don't consume meat. Here are some of my favorite places around the city.


One of my all-time favorite spots in Antigua is Caoba Farms. I found it on Google maps and didn't know what to expect when we arrived. I booked a farm tour, and we had breakfast beforehand. This place is magical, and the food is delicious. All farm-to-table, and you can literally walk around the farm yourself and see all the produce and poultry on the land.

Even if you're not a vegetarian/vegan, I can promise you that you'd still enjoy this vegan burger spot just as much (if not more!) I've tried many vegan burgers and nothing has hit the spot like this one. My order is: beyond burger with pickles, onion, lettuce, tomato and mayo.

4 ta calle Oriente dentro del CC La Fuente, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

The cutest little cafe tucked behind the main food square where La Bruja is located. The avocado toast is so good, and it comes with yucca chips! *drool*

4a Calle Oriente #14 CC La Fuente Antigua Guatemala, 00000, Guatemala


A great little spot for breakfast. They have a nice breakfast menu where you get juice, coffee, and breakfast for around 35q.

5 Avenida Sur #19, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala

An incredible vegan restaurant with so many options. The mac and cheese, ribs, and cauliflower bites are to die for! They have a great selection of drinks and even offer tapas with wine purchase.

2a Calle Oriente #22, Antigua Guatemala, Guatemala

This is probably my top place for a tipico (Guatemalan breakfast) in Antigua. The tortillas are made in-house using traditional corn methods. You can also order tortillas to-go!

I forgot to take pics, so here is one of the delicious Tamarindo juice that's my favorite. I love just getting rice with egg when I need comfort, but all the curries are pretty good! A great spot for cheap eats and drinks.

1 17"A", 03001, 1a Avenida Sur, Antigua Guatemala 03001, Guatemala


Also forgot to take a pic, but the food here is SO GOOD! The caesar salad, drinks, samosas, and more are delicious. Great ambiance for a group or date night.

Hi friends! Something about tomato soup feels nostalgic to most of us. Especially when it's paired with a grilled cheese. I decided to make a vegan version and I would have to say, I like it 100x more. It tastes just as good (if not better) and is dairy-free! This soup recipe can be eaten days later as I feel the flavor gets better overtime.


I didn't do a step-by-step with how to make the grilled cheese because lets face it - most of us are pros by now but I did want to share the ingredients I used to make it vegan. The Vio Life cheddar cheese melts AMAZING and tastes just like American cheese! The Miyoko's butter is my favorite because it melts great and honestly, tastes like butter! You can eat the whole stick guilt-free without the tummy ache... jk... not really!


Ingredients:


  • 4 Cloves Garlic - Minced

  • 1/2 Red Onion - Diced

  • 1 28oz Can of Fire Roasted Tomatoes

  • 1 Can Tomato Paste

  • 1 Can Full Fat Coconut Milk

  • 4 Cups Vegetable Broth

  • 1 Cup Water

  • Seasonings: Salt, Pepper, Red Pepper, Oregano, Basil

  • Garnish (optional): coconut cream or yogurt, basil


Recipe:


  1. Heat olive oil in a large pot, add in garlic and onion to sauté for 2-3 minutes

  2. Add in Fire Roasted Tomatoes, Vegetable Broth and Water and let boil

  3. Once boiled, turn the heat on low and mix in tomato paste. Let simmer for 5 minutes

  4. Transfer soup mixture to a high speed blender and blend till smooth

  5. Transfer half the mixture back into the pot and with the remaining half, add in coconut milk and blend

  6. Move back into large pot and let simmer for 10 minutes

  7. Serve with grilled cheese or toast and enjoy! :)
