I was thrilled by the delicious, simple, *vegetarian* menu! Especially as there generally aren’t a ton of options for vegetarians, this was a great find. The prices were very reasonable, especially considering everything in the Galapagos is bound to be price-y. The atmosphere was also...More

Our accommodation did not include breakfast, so we came and ate here most mornings we were on the island. Prices were reasonable and the cappuccinos were decent. I particularly enjoyed the eggs on sourdough bread with avocado, but the second time I ordered it I...More

We had a great vegan lunch here and a sleep in the hammocks. Unfortunately, they weren't serving lunches for the rest of our week in San Cristobal as the owner was away. Bad timing I guess

Hi and thanx for asking. 2018 has been an intense first year for us and so the whole staff is taking the rest of the month off. We will be back mid January 2019 with all of Fresco Cafe's goodness and delicious treats!

Fresco Cafe operates the cafeteria at Hostal Galapagos. It offers breakfast, lunch specials, snacks, cakes and drinks showcasing the local seasonal produce in a healthy and delicious way. Proud to serve in house made sourdough bread, fresh greek style yoghourt and other specialties like some of the best freshly brewed coffee Ecuador has to offer.
