A traditional Swiss menu comprised of the classics and a few local adaptations. Home made charcuterie, local cheeses and a fabulous bakery make this place a very popular attraction.

Great place to just have a coffee, shop a variety of extraordinary bread, get abundant breakfast, have a business lunch with diversity of European food - outstanding

Unique in Quito for typical Swiss breakfast options and alpine decor. Food is very well prepared and serving sizes are very satisfying; a bit pricey, though. OK service.

Being a Swiss travel writer and staying in Quito, i simply was obliged to pay a visit to this place called Swiss corner.
At first sight, it reminded me of the rustic places in our countryside or mountain areas: flowerpots with geranium on the windows, wooden interiour, and a map of Switzerland on the wall...
The breakfast options were typically Swiss too, serving our country's favourite breakfast options like Birchermüesli and Rösti. I was positively surprised of the quality of the brown bread and croissants - fresh, crusty and tasty. There is no place in Quito to get better European style bakery products than at Swiss Corner!
The quality of the other food served is okay, regarding Swiss standards. The service is okay too (almost as quick as in my country).
What really shocked me was the bill: For this breakfast with Müesli, Rösti and bread etc we paid almost as much as in our hometown Zürich, the most expensive place to live in the world, to be noted. How people with an average salary manage life in Quito, this expensive town, i really have no clue of.
In short: A place popular with well-off Ecuadorians, since they love its exotic note. For Swiss people this place might just be average. Apart from the amazing exotic fruit juices perhaps, which we don't get in our country. My recommendation: Travel to Switzerland instead and try the breakfast at Sprüngli in Zürich, Paradeplatz. There you get real value for money. And the best Birchermüesli ever.

If you are looking for breakfast in Quito, look only to the Swiss Corner. My personal favorite is the Bircher Muesli and the Strammer Max.
