Respond to Review of CLOSED: Bombay Cafe
Review: This is one of the reasons I am most grateful to have happycows.com, because knowledge of where to go in places like this can make a huge difference in the quality of the whole trip. This was a charming place, easily found, with friendly people and an all-vegetarian menu with a wide variety of options. I would have been able to go several times and get something new each time had I been staying there long. As it was, we were there only one day in June, 2009, and because we had been gone for lunch because of a tour on the lake (and we found a place that had hummus and filafel, of all things, in San Marcos), we just needed something wrapped up for supper quickly to take on the ride back to Antigua. They made it up from scratch but packaged it nicely, and I had a good hot Indian-spiced tofu and vegetable sandwich in a whole-wheat pita. An all-veg restaurant that allowed for good variety and convenience -- it added a great deal to the quality of the day and of the trip. I didn't have to put up with white bread and salad, as I did after I got to the conference in Guatemala City, but had real food, and in just the right spot. The wait there while they were fixing it was also pleasant; it's not a large place, but nice.
