El Cuartito or “The Little Room” has been Xela´s hippest café and the city´s most popular place to connect with the local scene since 2006. Conveniently located one block from Central Park, during the day you can find a mix of locals and travelers studying or connecting with friends and family online or swing by any night of the week to enjoy live music and our famous mojitos.
We like our coffee local and strong serving up espresso and French press using beans from the Guatemalan highlands and if tea is your thing try one of our 15 house blends of loose leaf tea.
Our menu includes everything from the best nachos in Xela to healthy hearty breakfasts, bagel sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, whole wheat pasta and crepes served all day long. We also just added an amazing new line of bratwurst and homemade sauerkraut!
El Cuartito is proud to be an integral part of the contemporary art community in Xela. We house a consistantly growing community of art and music built of over 9 years of people, places and stories from around the world and brought together in one unique place. From our recycled bottle lighting systems, repurposed furniture hanging from the ceiling or rotating art exhibits adorning the walls, El Cuartito invites you to add your take on art to our walls or up on stage!
