This Café is a must in Quito! Really friendly hosts. Nice drinks and a lot of photos on the wall. Try to find me on your next visit in Fonfone. ;-)

Falafel with salad for $3.50 CAN, vegetable lasagna for $4. A cheap but filling & delicious meal for two. Was plenty. The decor is basic, ecuadorian style, but the hostess welcoming and proud of her small restaurant and the food it offers.

Fonfone Cafe is one of the cutest cafes I've ever visited! Catalina (the owner) is kind and friendly. Every time I visited I felt at home. If you go don't forget to try a "legit" Ecuadorian locro de papas and the amazing jugos! They are...More
