Great Breakfast

Ate there twice for breakfast last week, second time with another couple who are not "breakfast people" but went because there was biscuits and gravy on the menu and cleared their plates. Very pleased with the portions, the price, the service and the location. Always busy, which is a good sign.

We have been to San Sebas Cafe many times and never been disappointed with our meals! The burgers are very big and delicious. The restaurant is clean. The service is good and would recommend for breakfast or lunch.

Great place in center of city, best cafe/tavern food I have had in region. Burgers are big and delicious, salad was the same. I would highly recommend going here for lunch and a few beers, worth the trip and very comfortable setting on the park.

Disclosure; I am a friend of the owners, but maybe because I have been eating at Cafe San Sebas multiple times per week for 2 1/2 years. San Sebas is a popular breakfast and lunch choice for both expats and local Ecuadorans. Service is always reliable and friendly, food is tasty and it is obvious it is done with care.The... More

This cafe is a favorite with the local gringo community. The owners brought the tastes of home here for us. Great burgers and fries. Lots if choices. The chewy cookies are to die for! Wonderful breakfasts, too.

Had a soup and salad combo, with southern salad (excellent) and chili, which was slow in coming and good, but not the best chili I had. Then I had a very good brownie and coffee, also very good. When my bill arrived it seemed less than it should have been. I asked the server to make sure that the cash... More

How can a once in a lifetime experience be described in a "review"? The only thing topping the excellent food, decadent deserts and wonderful drinks, would be the owner (Lindsey), and her wonderful staff of Ecuadorians and Norte de Americanos. The magnetic atmosphere and decor attracts locals and travelers from afar. This will will be my first stop when I... More

I've enjoyed San Sebas Cafe on multiple occasions. The breakfast options are fresh, hot, and very tasty. The potato hash options are excellent. If craving a burger with a kick, I highly suggest the Jalapeno Popper Burger. The ooey, gooey cheese and the crisp jalapenos work well together on top of the thick and juicy burger. It's a must-visit while... More
