The locals come here for great coffee

My friends from Quito brought me here to taste the best coffee in Quito. It was wonderful. But you must also try their bakery items. The corn and cheese tamale was so moist and very cheesy. And the cake with dulce de leche glaze had the most wonderful orange flavor. After all, isn't coffee why you... read more

Delicious desserts and perfect cappuccinos is what we found here at Sweet & Coffee in the Mariscal district. Service is fast and they bring the order at your table, no need to wait at the counter. There is free wi-fi inside and an outdoor seating area. A soft music background and confortable chairs add to the already good experience. The... More

We were told to try this as it was like Starbucks. Close, but not quite. The Grande coffee is just in a larger cup. It also leaves a little to be desired in the taste department. The desserts, though, are excellent. Price wise, it is less than Starbucks. We had a grande latte, a grande Americano, a slice of spinach... More

We love to go here to chill out and enjoy hot drinks and the newest sweetie. Although the older recipes don´t lose their charm either! usually a very comfortable corner away from the rest of a food court and less noise.

In this land I love that is so accustomed to drinking instant coffee this place is an OASIS! I also buy their coffees in the market. The coffees are properly roasted, handled and prepared to satisfy the most discriminating coffee palate. Desserts like there coconut flan (queso de coco) are excellent. They even make nice savory quiches.

they have probably the BEST coffee in Quito, but one disadvantage is that they are located mainly in malls (food courts) and there is no cosy coffee (Café) atmosphere as you have to sit with all the patrons at the tables of the food court ... besides it is self service ....

We have been to Sweet and Coffee once so far and our first impression was that they had transported a coffee shop from the US. Whether that is a good thing depends on what you like. We bought a red velvet cupcake, a savory filled pastry, a mocachino and a milk shake. The cupcake was a good basic cupcake but... More

Good coffee with a wide Ecuadorian selection along with cakes and sandwiches. Open from breakfast to late night, this place was extremely convenient and almost always open.
