The coffee shop craze has hit Central America hard, and Tegucigalpa is no stranger to the scene. It was to be expected, Honduras produces fine coffee and we should all enjoy it here at home. Although there are many great coffee shops in Honduras, there is one that really stands out on its own. I am talking about Cafe Galeano in Tegucigalpa.
The Restaurant name is Carmela, and it has a nice atmosphere. They serve great pizza and pasta. The waiting staff was friendly and good looking. They took good care of us. Prices were right and the wine was great. Two of us ordered pasta, the other a salad. We were all delighted with our food, which we enjoyed.

The most magnificent are without doubt the colonial Cathedrals in Comayagua and Tegucigalpa. There are two different colonial buildings in Honduras that are a result of military efforts to protect the territory.
