“Great coffee and a wonderful view ”
Review of Fresco Cafe

Fresco Cafe
Price range: US$4 - US$10
Description: Fresco Cafe has taken over the cafeteria at Hostal Galapagos. It offers breakfast, lunch specials, snacks, cakes and drinks showcasing the local seasonal produce in a healthy and delicious way. Proud to serve in house made sourdough bread, fresh greek style yoghourt and other specialties like some of the best freshly brewed coffee Ecuador has to offer.

Stopped by for an iced latte and enjoyed the lovely location and the friendly ambience. I was happy to see they use stainless straws!

We went to have dinner at Fresco Cafe last night and discovered it was closed. It is a breakfast/ lunch/lazy afternoon place...closes at 6:00. We went back for lunch today and were richly rewarded! We had spaghetti with pesto topped with Parmesan. I had ginger iced tea...yes, their water is filtered...yahoo!! Then tried their famous carrot cake and was not disappointed! It was chilled, moist, full of carrots and nuts. The butter frosting had a hint of citrus. I had a latte to go with it...fabulous! Good coffee is not easy to come by on this island. We were given biodegradable take-home boxes and not charged for it as one restaurant here did. I haven’t mentioned the lovely view of the harbor, the nice breeze, NO FLIES, and four hammocks besides shaded tables. The servings were so generous, we’ll have pesto pasta for supper with the remaining carrot cake.

If you need a break from patacones and fried local food etc this is the spot for a delicious meal with fresh veggies, home made international recipes with great flavor. Reasonable prices and high quality ingredients. Coffee is delicious too!

Hosanna grows many of the veggies herself and bakes her own bread and desserts. A must visit in San Cristobal.

Had breakfast here with family - menu is basic and limited, tried eggs over easy on sourdough bread - very tasty, bread is freshly baked on the spot. good price compared to many other, overpriced local joints.
