My favorite store in Cuenca!!

After spending a few weeks in Ecuador and feeling a little out of place, I found this tiny little shop! I loved it here! The owner and his family were amazing people and very helpful (especially with my spanglish!) The smoothies and the yogurt here are amazing and the fruits are to die for! I tried... read more

My friends and I had been mountaineering for a month in Ecuador, heartily missing greens and veggies. It took us several failed attempts to identify the tiny doorway of this place but once we did we went back every day! Delicious and healthy smoothies can totally be a meal replacement and there are also artisan soaps and nutrition supplements that... More

Great smoothie place with other very healthy options for sale too. We had smoothies, plus were able to purchase fresh local goat milk greek yogurt. The chocolate bars are local and very good.

It has a handy range for sure but the price and service (from the lady who was there when I was anyway) was shocking. The prices are high and the storage poor but the thing that got my goat was that after ordering 500g of dates that were a crazy price per kilo the lady then weighed out 436g and... More

It's not easy traveling in Ecuador as a vegan. I was so thrilled to find this gem one block from my hotel in Cuenca. Clean, organic, fresh & delicious

We were craving greens during our time in Cuenca, missing our usual fix (and finding it hard to find good, raw greens/veggies at meals in Ecuador)... so we were mighty glad to find this place and their delicious (and very green) juices and smoothies. Some days, a green juice or smoothie can make all the difference in feeling balanced. They... More

We were looking for a healthy alternative and we came across this awesome place. They have a long list of healthy juices and smoothies. We had a delicious (unsweetened) berry smoothie. Very nutritious and fulfilling. Welcoming server.

The selection is awesome, and as far as nutrition goes this is definitely up there. I love the organic feel of the place, and the seating area- though small- is really cozy. They exert an effort to offer the freshest options and definitely don't disappoint. A suggestion though for those who expect rather sweet, "normal" smoothies: make sure you ask... More

If you are looking for a juice in Cuenca this is the spot. I tried one of the berry smoothies which was pretty good. I would probably rate this 4 stars based on price/value but considering that there are not many other options like this I have found I give it 5. Will go here again if I can keep... More

I've been here for about 3 weeks in Cuenca, and I've been to Live Foods at least once every week. This morning I'm headed out again to get a delicious green, protein-filled smoothie. As a vegetarian it's been challenging to find vegetarian options here. These green smoothies are a major, nutritious boost while traveling. You can also buy hibiscus, almonds,... More
