Excellent breads

We also ate breakfast here one day, but it was only average. Their breads, however, were quite excellent, and we ended up coming here to buy our bread instead of some of the other panaderias.

Higly recommend for breakfast! It is not very cheap, but anyway that's Baños which is very touristic and the breakfast is worth it.

Didn't even get to eat breakfast here. Sat down at a dirty table for 10 minutes no one came to clean it, offer a menu or allow us to place an order. The breakfast menu looks good but a tad $$$. Noticed that there were three other tables also waiting for there table to be cleaned and place an order.... More

We went here because we were going on an excursion that left early and it was the only place open. It was just okay for breakfast, but the coffee is just awful.

While the breakfast were a tad expensive, the 25 cent integral rolls made up for it.

Food was OK, service was awful. Took 15 minutes to get my check after I asked for it. That was a bit awkward as they had asked me to sit with someone I didn´t know.

I came to Cafe Rico Pan for breakfast twice, and wished that I was staying in Banos longer so that I could keep coming back! The interior is bright, spacious, and welcoming, and a nice place to spend a bit of time alone or chatting with a friend at the beginning of the day. They have several types of breakfasts... More
