Stopped for a cappuccino, but ended up with a piece of carrot cake too. So good! Fast free WiFi and ideal location for a quick break.

Overlooking the Square, bar chairs to sit on whilst drinking a great cup of coffee! Snacks available and many other types of drinks too.

I have been to the Daily Grind many times but not since they moved to their new location. Its one of my favorite places to go for the coffee & pastries.

This is cute coffee shop located in the corner of the main square in Otavalo. Great coffee, juices, treats and more with a good view of the beautiful historic town center. It only has outside bar type seating, so it's perfect on a sunny day....More

After spending a few months away from home, I was missing the comforts of a good, classic PB&J. I was so happy to find this little store front. Their coffee was delightful and their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were obviously the highlight.

Had coffee and cake here this afternoon. Was good but not for the price. Compared to the rest of the town it a tourist trap. Enjoyed but disappointed in myself for going here. Two coffees and two slices cake cost $12. To compare our roast...More

This is a wonderful little coffee shop with just a few seats at the counter, but great for watching people and taking in the atmosphere of Otavalo. Good coffee is not as easy to find in Ecuador, but if you like good coffee go here!

This is a wonderful little coffee shop in a place for great people watching. They serve a great variety of coffee drinks, snacks and sandwiches. While enjoying your coffee, you can take the time to socialize with the English speaking owner. Good coffee is not...More

This terrific little espresso bar is right in the middle of Otavalo on Parque Bolivar. It serves the best coffee in Ecuador and fresh baked cupcakes and pastries every day. If you're lucky you'll be there when the zucchini nut bread comes out of the oven. It is served warm with whipped cream. The rum cake is like heaven on earth and worth savoring. There is a private garden behind Daily Grind where you can sit at tables and enjoy the flowers.
