Soothing atmosphere, Veggie Heaven!

I am pleasantly surprised at the vast array of vegetarian options. I hear Good Affinity has been open approx 10 years, so they're doing something right! Pleasant homey atmosphere with 1/3 of the seating in a bamboo zen garden. The almuerzo lunch special is $3 including brown rice, 3-4 side dishes... read more

Despite their hardships to get customers in the door because of construction of the Tranvia closing their street, this place continues to provide an excellent lunch.

I cannot believe the amount of delicious food you get for $2.50 here. I love this place. Once I had fried curry cauliflower that was one of the most delicious things to ever cross my lips. I think about it often. The hardest part is choosing just four items from the daily options!! I wish they were open for dinner.... More

We enjoy having an almuerzo with choices. The soup is always delicious for a starter and there usually eight items to choose from and a selection of juices and extra deserts. For a change there are Chaofan, Hot noodle dish and spring rolls. It's authentic Chinese home style cooking served with love.

This Chinese, vegetarian restaurant is located just off Gran Columbia, before the traffic circle with La Avenida de las Americas, on the west side of Cuenca. It's on the south side of Gran Columbia and a little hard to see because of all the tram construction in front of it. Everyone in Cuenca talks about the cheap almuerzos (lunches), with... More

Ok, honestly I've never had their almuerzo but I've tried everything else and have taken a bit of this or that from the almuerzo bar to try. The chow mein is very good for Ecuador but extremely oily. The eggrolls are the same. Drinks options are non-existent. Juice or soy milk... uhh where's my cerveza? Still with all that said,... More

Use to eat here once a week but I have moved and it's not so easy now. Great food, no meats, juices are great. Counter service only and the outside sitting is wonderful on good days. My body thanks me every time I eat here. Very reasonable prices, quantity is excellent, very friendly owner and staff. Highly recommended.

This is a great place for lunch. It has a really bright cheery atmosphere and is kept very clean. It is vegan (no meats here), but lots of beautiful food. It has a walk up counter that you go to and let the server know which 4 dishes you would like from what's offered. You then also get a bowl... More

It's hard to find really great vegetarian food in Cuenca (meaning no meat, chicken, seafood) and so we were thrilled by Good Affinity's wonderful food. It's so affordable that it's tempting to eat there everyday since it's far cheaper than cooking at home! Very nice people working there. They all seem to be so happy. Great vibe. We've become devoted... More
