Great place, great food. The owner gave us some samples to try and was very friendly and describe everything for us. Coffee and juice were amazing. Nice atmosphere.

It was a rainy day in Banos so i decided to go to this little gem. The place is beautiful decorated, there are hammocks to relax and read a book. The staff is friendly. A nice place to hang out in a rainy day !

I had Ponche Suizo, their so called secret recipe and ended up with severe diarrhe and profuse vomiting. When I complained to the woman who is there, she didn't care at all and when I asked, what was in it that could cause this, she refused to answer.

We enjoyed a great double espresso. After a short chat with the owner about his famous Ponche Suizo, we got a small try. The Ponche Suizo tasted great. Definitly coming back!

Had a great cappuccino here but the place seemed average otherwise. Lukewarm staff, probably not the best choice for breakfast.

The milkshake was delicious and so were the empanadas. Be sure to try the secret family recipe tea. Roberto, the owner, is such a sweetheart, very nice man.

Ordered some coffees and snacks. It was all delcious and served with care at a reasonable price. The coffee had a nice strong flavor and the empanadas weren't the fried type. They had some delicous crust. Also got some yummy chocolate chip cookies. Nice service as well.

Probably the best coffee I have had so far in Ecuador. I have lives in Colombian for 6 month and fell in love with the coffee. I was disappointed almost every time when I have coffee in Ecuador. However here at ponche suizo I can appreciate the coffee, the only place on Ecuador so far. I didn't like the ponche... More
