We just wanted some coffee and cake and decided to go here because we had read a bit about it. Upon arrival the lady who was working there was very nice and attentive and answered all our questions. They produce all their own organic coffee...More

Very cozy atmosphere with beautiful wood tables and items for sale such as chocolate, natural seed jewelery and natural soaps. We had traditional Amozonian breakfast. The fruit juices were lovely and the hot chocolate was amazing!

I had high hopes after reading so many great reviews about this place. In almost every way it failed to live up to the hype. The atmosphere of the cafe was utterly lacking and looked like a rushed renovation that was more of afterthought to...More

I go to the Kallari Cafe because it is one of the few restaurants in Quito I can afford on a Peace Corps salary. Everything on the menu, with the occasional exception of a lunch sandwich, is vegetarian friendly. The hot chocolate is FANTASTIC, and...More

We visited this restaurant a few different times for dinner. Every night we would have a juice, soup, dinner and dessert! Great food, great atmosphere, I'd recommend it again! We did a chocolate tasting with a woman named Judy and she was very knowledgeable.

Kallari Association has demonstrated that the revolutionary concept of local food applies to chocolate. Kallari cacao beans spend only three months between harvest and destination. This comparative freshness of the beans guarantees higher quality flavor to the consumer. Chocolate that is four times as fair as 'Fair Trade': Kallari's story is a giant leap ahead of standard Fair Trade practices, as it achieves higher levels of solidarity and income for all the families involved. The world at large benefits through participation; while perhaps paying a bit more for a little taste of heaven, end consumers of Kallari chocolate play a small role in increasing the standard of living in a developing nation, and in are in return rewarded with a higher quality product.
