Why the Butler's Club?? He was in the wall! Read this exerpt from our menu.....
Welcome to the "Cafe of the Countess!" This beautiful colonial house was built in 1549; it later became part of the Royal Houses in the country's capital city, Santiago de Guatemala. The First Count to occupy the house (1609) was the first "cloak and dagger" president (non-educated) who had no vote within his own court. Successive Counts inherited the title and occupied the house for many years until the capital city was transferred in 1775, to modern Guatemala City.
Like many old houses, this house has its bits of folklore. Supposedly, one of the Counts made an unexpected return from a voyage and found his wife in an indiscretion with the butler. Rumor has it that the butler was buried alive by the angry Count. During reparations after the 1976 earthquake, the rumor was supported when a skeleton was discovered within the pantry wall...and apparently had been buried standing up! Just to be on the safe side, the house was exorcized in 1992. And since the Cafe has been established, no strange noises have been heard. Perhaps the spirits are satisfied now that there are good smells coming out of our kitchen and the gardens are beautiful once again!
