Arte cafe is definitely the place to go for breakfast while exploring banos. The savory crepes (especially the ham, egg, and cheese) are huge and to die for! The drinks are just as good and made by a professional barista who definitely knows how to...More

The place is so comfi with the swinging chairs. They have all kinds of flavors for coffees and they're delicious. The food was probably the best I had in Ecuador. The crepes are just the best (both salty and sweet ones)
