We weren't sure how to find the waffle joint, as the GPS map made it appear to be in the middle of the park. That's exactly where it is! It is a small open-air kiosk with stools and a few small places to sit nearby. The chef is European, and seems to travel from place to place around the world... More

If you like waffels, but quality fresh made in front of you in a botanical garden, this is a perfect place to go with the kids and for yourself. A nice variety of tastes. Friendly owner, and we were delighted to speak Dutch in Cuenca. There were 3 other Belgium natives and we had fun. They just arrived in CUENCA.... More

Great waffles just like at home (yes, I'm Belgian, so even more critical). Great price and a superfriendly service. It is well located in the parc at the museum of Banco Central with free entry and great to get to know about ecuadorian histry and cultures.

While wandering around Cuenca on our last day there, we visited the park attached the museum next to the central bank. At the bottom of the park sits this one eatery open Thursday-Sunday. Waffle prices varied from $1.50-$2.50 depending on if you wanted a variety of sauces or ice cream. The gentleman who owns it is from Brugges, Belgium (where... More

The waffles sounded and looked amazing, but I did not expect it to be the best waffle I've ever had. It really is...and from a cart in a museum/park! Super light and flaky and crispy...wow. I'm going back tomorrow for more. The owner is also very friendly and chatty (when he is not too busy). He keeps the prices the... More

This is a great little spot, nestled in the botanical gardens below the Inca ruins. It is next to the aviary. The waffles are great and it's nice to sit and listen to the squarking and eat waffles with ice cream :)

Fantastic Waffles, you must stop and have one or two. fresh strawberries, all types of syrup, and different ice creams. The park is free so you can afford to spend $2 on a waffle with good coffee. I want one now.....!
