This is clearly a "Gringo" place in Cuenca. Opens at 8.30am and you definitely should go there to have your breakfast! Wide range of offering, different coffees, pancakes, integral bread and so on. Size of portions - outstanding! Price is absolutely fair. Well known among...More

The smell when you walk in during breakfast or lunch hours reminds me of a diner back in the States. Breakfast is awesome. Coffee is good. The variety of sandwiches is A+. Definitely fills the hole in my stomach when I want American food.

Great breakfast place. Various menu options to please many different palettes. Pancakes should definitely be on your list! Lots of regulars it seems hang out there -- whether Cuencanos or Gringos. Thumbs up.

I hate to say, I am a coffee addict, and coffee has to be prepared according to the arts. Not too long, with nice foam. Forget this place if you're looking for the perfect cup of coffee. They have no cleu.
