Wonderful coffee with a huge variety of beans to choose from - best in Banos. Thin and tasty crepes in a relaxed atmosphere with interesting handicrafts and decor.

I liked it here. Service wasn't amazing but ok. Food was really good. Coffee was a slight let down considering the cafe's pride in the offerings, but it was still ok.

Varied menu of coffees, teas, and mostly sweet snacks. These people know their coffee! They roast their beans on-site, and have a good variety of Ecuadorian beans. I'll be back everyday I'm in Banos, and may even buy some beans to bring back with me.

We had a good look for the arte cafe, but it doesn't appear to be at the same address anymore, we wondered around for some time on the promise of tasty pancakes, but no one could point us in the right direction. Please update the address on Tripadvisor.

Are you really the kind of person that trashes publicly a nice place like this on the sole basis of your own selfishness? You are not "fond' of places like that because they ask wi-fi trolls to move along so that real customers will be able to make the small business survive? Really??? What a shame, lady, what a shame!
