Really friendly but place with excellent coffee and big cake selection. What was even nicer was to see the cakes being made in house. Don't bother with Starbucks, the coffee is far better here

There are a series of these across Quito, During a mid morning shower, I was looking for a place to get out of the rain and sip a cup of decent coffee. (Most of the restaurants here serve instant coffee). The coffee was tasty, the brownie was delicious! The people watching was fair, and I stayed dry! All in one... More

I came across this place when looking to get out of the rain and also looking for a coffee shop to do my Spanish homework in. It fit the bill. I had a yummy hot chocolate and a piece of cheesecake and the total was $5.20. This is pricey for Ecuador but not a bad price compared to Australia or... More

Good bakery and pleasant place to meet for a coffee and enjoy a sweet or a light meal. A little pricey for what you get.

On a cool and rainy afternoon, this was a wonderful spot to stop for a cup of coffee and pastry. The staff was great - even adjusting the coffee drink we ordered to please us. It's roomy and is great for people watching on the street outside. Great location.

This place has the worst service at all of their locations. Perhaps they don't train their staff. Getting a cup o'joe takes forever, and God forbid you ask for something like a decaf, they can't handle an order that is different. One of the employees was on their phone the whole time while another worked the cashier and made the... More

This place is a franchise so don't expect much, you will find them all around malls and such. The coffee is not exciting, the desserts are too expensive. I seriously don't understand all the amazing reviews. I guess if there isn't anything else in the neighbourhood and you are craving for coffee, otherwise don't go.

This is basically a coffee house that sells some pastries on the side. The coffee is extremely good (coffee in Quito generally is too) and they sell tasty Ecuadorian snacks. Remarkable: the "humitas" which were warm and slightly salty, very comforting. The staff is very professional and polite.Wifi fast and reliable. Soft, well chose music. The chairs are divine...so very... More
