i had the cinnamon roll pancakes --3 large pancakes, which were too much for me to finish. my husband had a breakfast combo which was also quite good. while their prices are higher than other places for breakfast, their portions are quite large. the quality is high.

We are only there for Sunday brunch. It is difficult to pass up the banana nut pancakes. Mmm - delicious! Coffee is good too.

Really comfy atmosphere and lots of gringos. The service was a little slow the day we went but was still good. The food was delicious. I got the veggie omelette and my fiancé got the pancakes and we were both very happy! We'll definitely be back during our stay.

Totally organic food! Really nice sitting on the edge of a square. Plenty of space and very roomy. Would go here several times a week over six months. And the food is always excellent and consistent. I think their selection of hamburgers are the very best in all of Cuenca! But the other items on the menu are really really... More

A good little restaurant on a side street across from a small park. The restaurant is very clean and the service friendly. Had the San Sebas burger and fries, a cold Pilsner and a lemon square. How balanced can you get? The burger was good and fresh as were the fries. The lemon square was the last one avail and... More

We went here for a late afternoon snack. The place was almost empty, but all the patrons were Americans. The menu offers typical American breakfasts with eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, etc., but I just had bagel with cream cheese and coffee while my girlfriend had a salad. Both were very good. I cannot comment on the breakfasts because we didn't have... More

Excellent food for breakfast or lunch. Great service, value, clean and food is always excellent. Great location to have a quiet meal and enjoy the scenery from an outside table and view of the square. Can't miss!

Veggie and carne lovers have come together here. Komubucha tea! Many healthy choices and wine offerings also. This is a breakfast and lunch venue, closed on Sunday and Monday. This is a gringo hangout and many of the staff speak English. The owners speak English and Spanish. Great food, nice atmosphere, and perfect location.

San Sebas has delicious food, options for everyone, great desserts, great atmosphere, and friendly staff. We always know we will get a great meal with great service at San Sebas. It's a favorite choice for everyone in our family. Need a breakfast place? This is it! (But everything else on the menu is tasty too!) The upstairs space is great... More
