Loved every minute of talking to the owner and they have really good breakfast! We tried the Chai Tea the day before and had a great conversation with the owner.

The coffee, bread, and fruit smoothies are all very fresh and wholesome. Clean, friendly, and sincere. Husband and wife running the place. Make you feel right at home in genuine surroundings. P.S. Not pricier than other options, no one is pushy around here, and the bed is baked here, not doubt about that. Don't know what other gringos are talking... More

We went to the coffee house for a nice afternoon coffee. The place looks nice and you can sit outside. The lady however is very pushy and not friendly at all! Coffee is not better than any other places but it is twice the price! When we ordered, she asked us if we wanted anything more and she summed up... More

The decor is nice, as many others have said. The food is incredibly average. We saw the owner buying a tonne of bread from a bakery a few blocks away - so much for 'home made'!. The female owner - we didn't see the guy - was bordering on aggressive and quite rude and pushy. Nothing much to add to... More

I went to this restaurant for brunch and it was a very nice experience. The food was delicious and large quantities. The smoothies were easily the best I've ever had in Ecuador. There are games to play and it's a nice place to have a long meal with a partner or friends. The price is definitely higher (average $12/person) than... More

I can definitely see how some of the one star reviews here can be true. The owner is very eccentric, frequently boasts about her freshly made bread and smoothies, and can hang around at your table for periods far longer than comfortable. I ordered one of the sandwiches, which actually did turn out to be very good - the bread... More

My friend and I have really missed some good bread, and this is no doubt the best bread we've had in South America since we came (2months). It comes with a price (7$), but if you enjoy proper bread it is totally worth it. The owner is nice but a bit stressed. I'm going back!

Awesome place tucked into the beautiful town of Baños Ecuador. This place had the best REAL coffee I ever found in Ecuador (due to many places uses instant stir in coffee). Prices are very reasonable for food (I recommend the brownies and egg combo breakfast) and hand ground coffee's. They also have vino caliente which is hot wine with spices.... More

The owner gave us a card in the street, boasting great coffee so we went for coffee later in the day. When I asked for the wifi password, the ecuadorian employee told me I had to spend $10. At first I thought he was joking with me as this is unheard of! He explained that people stay 3-4 hours to... More

Warm freshly home made bread rolls - delicious freshly squeezed orange juice and a great fruit salad. After three months of very basic breakfasts or terrible bread this place was a welcome surprise. This may not be an everyday breakfast place it's certainly a dollar or two more than I am used to paying for breakfast (I'm backpacking) but what... More
