Best View: Arguable, Best Michelada: Hands Down

Café Sky Terrace View

The most obvious draw to dining at Café Sky is the view. Those camped out on the restaurant’s rooftop terrace can spot Volcanoes, Cerro de la Cruz, Tanque de la Unión and the Church of San Fransisco El Grande (pictured) from the high vantage point. A local magazine even claims the restaurant has the best view of La Antigua. I think that is arguable to Cerro de la Cruz, El Sereno and some private residential houses with excellent views that I’ve had the lucky pleasure of knowing, but the vista is stunning nonetheless.

Yet, aside from the view, the restaurant has, what is for me, “hands down” the best Michelada in town. That is, the best kind with the tomato-hot sauce mix. There is another kind that uses just lime, salt and Worcestershire sauce expertly applied to your can of beer, but for the full out Michelada mix, Cafe Sky is it.

I also fancy their breaded mushroom dish… wow, now I’m hungry!

  • Breathtaking! Pics of the food please? i don’t know what this Michelada is.

    • FERNANDO

      MICHELADA IS A POPULAR DRINK IN GUATEMALA, MADE OUT OF BEER, TOMATO JUICE, WORCESTER, AND SOMETIMES A DROP OF TABASCO ( HOT SAUCE).
      YOU SHOULD TRY IT

  • @Laura, you forgot to mention that Café Sky is the perfect high vantage point for the Semana Santa photographers. 🙂

    • Well I wouldn’t know since I haven’t been here for a Semana Santa… YET! 😉

    What a strange disease must be spreading if the ‘fotoperiodista’ from La Antigua can make the viewer in Boston hungry for breaded mushrooms at 8:30 in the morning. Loco, no ? I think the only cure is a personal visit. Okay, Laura, on my checklist for the not-so-distant future, “Michelada and breaded mushrooms @ Cafe Sky”. As long as I can get a cappuccino from Fernando’s beforehand…. Mmmmmmmm…..

    • Let me know when you arrive and we have a date! 😉 I’m certainly not missing out on an opportunity for a Michelada and breaded mushrooms from Cafe Sky!!
