Gorgeous little cafe in a stunning location right by the waterfall in Baños. Excellent menu which includes a great selection of vegetarian food which they are more than happy to make vegan if asked. Really friendly people making it a very homely atmosphere!

The food is amazing and almost everything on the menu has a vegan option! Whether you want to sit and enjoy coffee, tea, or mulled wine OR have a full meal, it's a great place. Karina is an amazing chef and owner if you get the chance to meet her.

Wonderful restaurant with delicious food and friendly staff. I was in Banos for 4 days and went back each day. I had the Pad Thai, the soup, Hindu dish and pesto pasta. And the brownie (more than once). All was SO good. Highly recommend! Thanks for the food and advice of what to see in Banos, Café Hood :)

It's in a different spot now than my last Banos trip, but the new place looks very nice. We sat outside and enjoyed the weather.

The staff were welcoming and friendly. There's a wide selection of menu options. Mexican, Italian, vegetarian, burgers, Thai, desserts...

We enjoyed our visit, but the place is pricey for the amount and quality of food we received. There are better values to be found all over Baños.
