The best selection of imported grocery items at Lake Atitlan, including an excellent selection of wine and spirits. Deli with meats, cheeses, and freshly made sandwiches.
Two locations: The larger store is on the Calle Principal, up from The Palapa and across from Kodak. The smaller store is on Calle Santander, across from the public school.
There are three “gringo-friendly” grocery stores in Panajachel. I shop at all of them for different reasons.
Sandra’s has by far the best selection, but their prices are higher than the other stores. They have the best selection of natural food items and supplements in Pana (though Salud Para Vida in San Pedro is best for those).
Sandra’s is the only place in Pana I can buy tempeh, and their tofu is always fresh. They have a good selection of pastas (including gluten free), vinegars, specialty oils, and spices, and a big selection of non-dairy milks. Mushrooms, including button and portobellos, are delivered on Tuesday afternoon. They even have fresh cranberries around the holidays.
This is the place for specialty items you might not expect to find around Lake Atitlan, including quinoa, many kinds of packaged flour (including 5 lb sacks of rye flour and Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free flour), bulgar wheat, and tapioca starch.
