Lived in Cuenca 10 months before having this wonderful experience. Now I have breakfast there at least once a week.Have yet to have lunch there but if it is anything like breakfast I am sure they can count on me for repeat business. The ambience is wonderful and their staff is excellent and friendly. The food is outstanding (try the... More

We have eaten here several times and have always received excellent service. One of my favorites is the bagel and fruit dish - really a lot for your money! Their wraps are always plenty to eat. You can eat inside or outside, depending on your desire. The staff has always been super friendly.! Try it out!

This was a return visit for us, the staff is always friendly and attentive. The BBQ ranch chicken salad is excellent. All ingredients were fresh and everything was well presented. We will definitely be returning.

I'm happy we found this place on Trip Advisor cause the food is really good. We got pancakes and French toast (the best we've had in Ecuador) which was a nice change and surprise from normal Ecuadorian breakfast places. The food came quickly, which was another plus. The only reason I'm not giving 5 /5 is because it wasn't incredible.... More

Our breakfast started off with a great cup of coffee and fresh squeezed juice. The food was great, the staff friendly and many expats meet there in the morning for breakfast. We met several people their and exchanged a lot of information.

This restaurant is owned by gringos, serves breakfast and lunch, and is known for its American breakfasts, though there are also soups, salads and sandwiches. My husband and I come for breakfast. He orders the pancakes which come with different toppings (cinnamon, strawberry, etc.), as well as maple syrup, while I get one of the egg dishes which has a... More

Lots of menu choices, excellent service, tasty food. We have gone to the Intercambio lunches and practice Spanish with gringos. Lots of fun. As well the location of this restaurant is on a beautiful and quiet square with outside seating. Lovely!

A great place to have breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. Please make a reservation as if you try and just drop in too often the nearby alternatives are a grave disappointment. Nice furniture & fittings, lovely cakes on offer and very good service. The breakfasts are great.
