Worth a stop in if you're hungry and in the Old Town area. Great choice of local micro brews and really good coffee. My husband is from Louisiana where cajun is at its finest, and said that this cajun was some of the best he had ever had. We ended up eating here 2 times during our 3 days in Quito, and each time was great. Staff is attentive, helpful, and the food always fresh and delicious.

We rented the room above this restaurant for a few days, and breakfast at the restaurant is included each day. The breakfast was the best we had our entire trip. It's generous in size, the fruit is fresh and varied, the croissants are giant, and the eggs are made to order. However, the real standout is the coffee. It was the best coffee we had our entire trip. Definitely drink it with the chocolate! We regret not having gone back to buy some beans to bring home. We went here for dinner one night and it was okay. The po-boy was so-so but the chips were delicious. Also, the beer was really good. By far the best we had in Quito.

Man....I am trying to think how we could do better on our Po Boys. Thanks for the business at not only the cafe but the apartment upstairs.

This is a refreshing place in Quito. Located only a couple of blocks away from the main square and on the Junin street. The food is good and the atmorphere too. They offered a good selection of appetizers and a small selection of main dishes. The fried casabas are great and they come with a good souce.

I would recommend this place for travellers looking to grab a drink and some food.

It was ok experience, but nothing more that this, we waited for the food too long, and then I got a wrong course. The decoration is nice and the jazz music was cool. I felt they are more specialized in coffee and chocolate, then meals

Thank you for the response. Sorry you waited too long....you did not mention what you ordered but we have always felt that enjoying the great atmosphere of our 400 year old establishment is a big part of the experience......as you mention with your comment about our decoration. We are not fast food...our hamberger for instance takes 20 minutes. If you got the wrong course...you needed to mention it and we would have replaced it. We had some new workers this week so that might explain the confusion.

Nice little cafe. Great cosy atmosphere inside (it's really small but has three levels!) and a couple of outdoor tables too. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the world go by. We were there for dinner - as well as some Ecuadorian stuff they offered some Cajun specialities. The spicy rice with prawns was a welcome change from the usual bland Ecuadorian food! It also offers its own draft beer. Friendly service - it's run by an expat family (French I think!)
