Nice place to eat for us vegans/vegetarians

Very good and tasty food. Vegetarians have multiple items on the menu to choose from. The place has a nice, chilled out ambiente. We really enjoyed the chocolate brownie :-)

I went for breakfast & it took forever to get the staff to notice me, not sure maybe just not enough help working? When I got it the food was very average. I really can't recommend this place to anyone unless you want to wait a long time for so so food

When I decide to travel to Ecuador I came with the curiosity to try ecuadorian coffee and chocolate. After visiting diferent places, my favorite was here!! Every day my breakfast includes delicious organic coffee & chocolate, they serve also a variety of sandwinches, huge omellettes with toasts, all this for a reasonable prices.
