The Moca Cafe Bar is a very nice place to have breakfast, lunch, a drink, or a dessert. They run a different special every week. This week was a piece of cake free when you order a cappachino. I love their breakfast panini. The coffee is excellent. They have wi-fi, indoor and outdoor seating. The prices are very reasonable.

Moca's is a very easy place to get hooked on. The desserts are great - especially the chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting - best chocolate cake in Cuenca. And Courtney will make you a real American milkshake - but you have to try the Frozen Bailey's yum. Some good sandwiches, too. They don't care how long you sit and... More

Great cafe bar to enjoy relaxing with friends. The coffee and food is quite good. The staff is warm and friendly. They offer free WiFi. With a large screen TV it provides good fellowship to watch the futbol (soccer) matches.

Steven and Susan, owners and daughter Courtney always greet you with a smile and make you feel at home right away. They host a soccer club and it is fun going there and watching it on TV with empanadas and sandwiches that... More

With the construction going on down at the corner of Las Americas, this has to be a restaurant you really have to want to go to. Many of the local residents and business employees make this their neighborhood coffee shop. Steve and Susan run the shop and have done a lot of good things to make it comfortable, modern and...

I've been spending a lot of time here in the last couple of weeks. I typically come with a computer to get some work done, but accomplish little of that as I end up meeting so many new people and socializing with the other regulars. Lots of good conversation, fresh American-style coffee, and delicious pastries make this a find place... More

We loved Moca Cafe Bar... its decor and ambiance make you feel right at home; the managers are friendly and welcoming, and the breakfast goodies are wonderful. I had a huge apple and nut muffin that was just perfection while my hubby had the panini which he loved. We'll be back! :-)
