Guest Reviews:

Interesting experience – you can see and select your food on the way in. The typical meal is a stew with a couple sides. Inside there are a few rooms with filtered light and plants. Quite serene. Tasty stew, bottomless coffee, and a side of peppers and onions.” -Mitch C.

I ate here twice while in Antigua. Once for lunch and once for breakfast. You can view the stews upon entry and choose from a variety of sides, I really liked the pickled beet and cabbage slaw, and the pickled bean salad. There is also table service where there is a menu you can pick from.” -Tessa Lucero
