What to Try at Y Tu Piña Tambien


Y Tu Piña Tambien

It’s easy to fall in love with Antigua, Guatemala.  The people are wonderful and sweet.  A little girl wandered into Y Tu Piña Tambien today while I was sitting trying to figure out how to sell photos online.  Seeing the photo opportunity I didn’t want to be the sneaky photographer, so when she wasn’t able to sell any bananas to the manager here (because if you notice there is a huge bunch of bananas hanging from the wall) I offered her payment for a photo which she accepted.  I am in love with her outfit but more in love with how sweet she was.  After I paid her for the photo the manager and I both teared up.  The children here are beautiful, and they work all day.  So I am starting to brain storm on what ways I can help the children.

So that had nothing to do with this post, but I just wanted to share how the photo came about.  I LOVE Y tu piña tambien, I think it’s beautiful.  So I decided to devote an entire post to the place.  I believe they change their menu occasionally but the atmosphere remains the same, even 10 years later (I visited back around 2006).  I love the colors, and it reminds me of Costa Rica.

They have four yummy smoothies to Try! A chocolate, peanut butter, banana (which is my favorite), a watermelon, strawberry, mint (which is refreshing), an avocado, banana, coconut water (my least favorite), and the pineapple ginger which was my 2nd favorite.

The breakfast is also delicious and simple.  They have a typical breakfast with eggs, black beans, and fried plantains.

I don’t know about most travelers, but any time I am in a new country, my stomach takes it’s sweet time to adjust to the food.  It’s probably just me.  But I love this place because I can eat light.  I love the peanut butter banana cinnamon sandwich.  Yes it’s simple, but I would have never thought to put cinnamon on it!  And it’s great.

If you’re looking for an inexpensive breakfast option get the muffin, and add a side of avocado or potatoes.
