Fernando's Kaffee is the place to grab a delicious breakfast and an exquisite cup of Guatemalan coffee. The price is right and service is friendly and quick. The gray-haired owner of the place is a sweet woman who cheerfully greets each visitor and calls them all corazon.
For breakfast there are several options, like the tipico for Q10 (slightly over $1) that consists of two eggs over tortillas with delicious black beans and fried plantains. This is served with tortillas or bread. If you want onions and tomatoes scrambled into your eggs, add another Q2 (or $0.25). The Americano breakfast comes with two eggs scrambled with ham and cheese, bread, and fresh fruit. It costs a bit more at Q20.
This café is coffee heaven. They serve lattes and mochas (Q10) that rival any you've tasted in the States. They also have a full juice bar. Almost any combination of fruit and vegetable juices you can imagine can be ordered: my dad had a pineapple/celery mix.
Like everything in Guatemala, there is always a bit of the unexpected. Instead of onions in my eggs, I got bell pepper. And instead of ham on his plate one morning, my dad got slices of salami. Still, we were so happy with our full bellies and all other aspects of our experience there that we wouldn't dream of mentioning the humorous substitutions.
