I dined here a number of times last April-2018-during my stay in Cuenca.The food is very good and the ambience is pleasant.I found the staff friendly-I want to pay tribute to Julia who served me on a number of ocassions.The cafe enjoys a great location on Calle Larga and is deservedly popular...prices are affordable....I am happy to give it 8 out of 10.

Maybe because we don't fit the profile of "white gringos" but after eating here 5-6 times we decided to stop coming here. It honestly seems like a place where white people talk conspiracy theories. How do I know? Because everyone talks ridiculously loud and takes up the space surrounding the restaurant. The last time I was there I overheard a guy talking about how the United States controlled the last big earthquake that hit Ecuador's coast. The worst part? Other people started agreeing with him.

Owners, Craig and Lucy, and their staff, Julia and Miriam, put their hearts and souls into their breakfast, lunch, and dessert offerings. We ate here just about every day for some meal or carry-out. We were always welcomed, enjoyed the fresh and healthy food, and engaged in interesting conversations with other customers. This is one of our favorite spots in Cuenca!! Muchas gracias - Susana and Garito - Detroit

This place is great! A total gem. One of the best things they have here (in my opinion) is malted milkshakes. So excited to be able to have one when I was pregnant! I give the place 4 stars because its small and the tables seem crowded together when the place is full. Nice people, good service, great food. Will be back!
