Overly overrated place, especially by the female owner herself. She is really pushy and unfriendly. The sandiwhes they serve are not bad, but takes a long time to serve and is defenitely too expensive for what they offer. The vegetables in the sandwich are cut...More

Loved every minute of talking to the owner and they have really good breakfast! We tried the Chai Tea the day before and had a great conversation with the owner.

The decor is nice, as many others have said. The food is incredibly average. We saw the owner buying a tonne of bread from a bakery a few blocks away - so much for 'home made'!. The female owner - we didn't see the guy...More

I went to this restaurant for brunch and it was a very nice experience. The food was delicious and large quantities. The smoothies were easily the best I've ever had in Ecuador. There are games to play and it's a nice place to have a...More
