Pop in to drink the best coffee in town, meet the nicest people and eventually buy beautiful and high quality artesania. We enjoyed a lovely afternoon and ate the best pancakes in Ecuador! We definitely come back for more!!!

I had the Arepa which was surprisingly good and the best coffee I've had in Ecuador. We also bought chocolates and... More

Varied menu of coffees, teas, and mostly sweet snacks. These people know their coffee! They roast their beans on-site, and have a good variety of Ecuadorian beans. I'll be back everyday I'm in Banos, and may even buy some beans to bring back with me.

My husband and I hit this place all the time. The tea and coffee are amazing, the breakfast Arepa is one of my favorites. Too the hammock chairs are totally comfortable. It's a great place to eat, sip tea and have snacks, both sweet and savory. Highly recommended.

This is a fun spot for great coffee. Loved the cappuccino and the cute design they made on top. We didn't eat here but they have a nice menu for breakfast. Relaxing swing chairs out front and beautiful art work and crafts for sale inside.
