in desperate need of caffeine at about 5pm, we found this place which was technically closed, but where they were happy to make us takeaway cappuccinos; we also got a takeaway choc/banana vegan slice. The cappuccino was exceptional, my partner making the big call that it was “the best cappuccino in South America!”

i wasnt sure about getting a vegan sweet, thinking it would be dry sans eggs, and lacking in flavour without butter, but it was so moist and nice. When we went bakc the next day we got another one. We also got a slice of carrot cake, and this was the most disappointing bit, quite dry (i suspect it was a bit old).

We also went for lunch for wet burritos. Doesn’t look amazing from the pic, but it was delicious and soooo big. Could definitely share 1 between 2.

Probably the best coffee in Cuenca at a good price. There are other coffee shops that have coffee as good as Nucallacta but are generally more expensive.

Also a good menu, try the fish tacos!

We generally frequent this restaurant each time we are in Cuenca. Last year, I was disappointed with the wet burrito as it was a little too vinegary for my taste.

This year, I decided to give it a go again. I was thrilled that it was perfect. Be warned though that if you order this for lunch, you will not need dinner later. The burritos are huge and delicious.

As usual, the coffee here is excellent.

We were walking on the town, visiting some museums and galleries... and when we felt hungry and we stopped at this cute and great local place...
We had a great lunch! Delicious and with natural fruits water... AMAZING!
The taste was great and they have this incredible ají sauce... loved it!!
The service was amazing, you can feel the energy around there, with people from all over the world... sharing and relaxed.
At the end of the lunch we didn't had enough room for a coffee, even when it smelled amazing!

Burgers and yummy salads--the southwest salad was ameal in itself. Great service, and quiet little private piazza, on our way to the English-language bookstore in Cuenca.
