Restaurant “Salinerito” is delicious because it offers different things like: chocolates, candies, cereals, yogurt, wine and more. In this place you can eat delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner. The service is great because the waiters are very kind and polite. You can wait thirty minutes or less because all the dishes are prepared at the moment that you pay the... More

Great if you have a craving for a sandwich. The juices are also good and its worth the visit for some gringo food.

Best coffee in town. Good food too. My husbands favorite is there Family pizza, its stuffed crust. They have selections that are Gluten free too. Great chocolate too.

We spent $12, got 2 pizzas (personal sized but we had to take some home because we couldn't finish it), and 2 fruit smoothies. The pizzas were nothing short of amazing! Definitely recommended.

You don't find a better place in Otavalo. I just wanted a cup of coffee, but I fell in love and I have been there multiple times since. Highly recommended!

These people do a really nice breakfast. On our recent visit to Otavalo we found ourselves in Salinerito 2 every day except for monday when they were closed. On that day we went to the original Salinerito where the food is nice but the atmosphere not quite as nice. The breakfast is massive. The restaurant clean and the staff very... More

Great pizza! Great coffee! I love the "cappuccino con crema" it's delicious. Plus the prices are reasonable. They also sell specialty food items you're not likely to find anywhere else. Cheap breakfast here too. Try the "Escolar" it comes with coffee, juice, scrambled eggs with ham, and a sandwich. I usually can't eat it all and end up eating the... More
