A cosy place with friendly staff plus a lovely, tasty, simple menu; a jaw-dropping view of Banos (particularly at night). I had banana pancakes with chocolate ice-cream. YUM!

It was worth the visit for the view and the strawberry crepes were pretty good. My husband had the tortilla potato with fried egg and bacon sauce and he really enjoyed it. We added a couple of specialty coffees and the bill came to $22.50, so it's not cheap, but worth the "been there, done that" effort. Vale la pena... More

This place is part of LUNA RUNTUN comple and is really worth the trip on its own ! A unique view over Baños and a very good coffe as well as a large choice of light plates for a late lunch or an early dinner. Most recomended !

We came just for a cup of coffee. The menu had many options. The coffee was great but the best part was the view from our table overlooking the city.

This is the nicest and cool cafe in the Baños town. It seats below the pool of the hotel which is located strategically within the mountains. The view at night is great, it is like when you are in a plane landing at night and see the city lights - there is a terrace outside as well. Many items in... More

Views were unbeatable. Food was good. A little more pricey than other local options but worth the splurge for one meal to enjoy the view.

So this place is about 6 km outside of Banos but oh so worth the drive to visit. The setting is beautiful. The restaurant itself is spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The huge windows allow one a view of Banos that is spectacular. I was able to find vegan options on the menu that were quite good. My friend is... More

Amazing views of Baños! The café has large windows which allow you to enjoy the great views. We got a milkshake and a juice. $6.40 for the two. Both very tasty. It does food also and has a good menu.
