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!

Just off Bolivar Plaza this place is a little gem. We had a cold coffee as it was such a hot day and it was lovely. If you like good coffee come here!

We stumbled upon the Daily Grind accidentally and were delighted in the coffee and service. The location is great, pull up a red stool and say hi to your neighbor. The pastries looked delicious. The Daily Grind also serves beer and cocktails.

The coffee at the Daily Grind was one of the best cups I've had in Ecuador (Quito and Banos). The place is small and seats just a few at the counter, but felt like you were somewhere in Europe sipping coffee near the square. There...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.
