Having spent a week in Ecuador and had no luck finding a decent cup of coffee and an Western style breakfast..this place was a god send:) The owner is passionate about her coffee and all her food is freshly baked in house. The cappuccino was perfect and the sandwiches and Danish were very tasty. The owner is a bit quirky,... More

I was here way back in early April. I went in for a coffee and liked the atmosphere so much I ordered breakfast. I also got a sandwich here later in the afternoon. I really liked the coffee and the food was excellent. I am a big fan of the western style breakfast with good bread. I was in this... More

We stopped by for brunch and were very impressed. We ordered the combo breakfast and were warned that we would not need to eat for the rest of the day, which was true. The owner was very passionate about her food and justifiably so, her homemade bread was delish. Coffee was excellent.

The food was very good. Vibeke was to busy being by herself and service was extremely slow. She had a lot of good stories. I hope she will be able to improve the service since the food and atmosphere are great.

Cozy little place on the corner that has great coffee and possibly the best sandwich I've had in months. Definitely worth a stop in for lunch. There is also a book exchange (most are for sale) with some actually decent english books. The owner is a character, but we enjoyed her company.

- very,very good coffee, hot Chocolate, brownie, carroy pie, sandwiches,... But it also has a price. - The lady (origin of Denmark) is very talkative and kind of weird. Try to ignore her, cause you can't get rid of her. Although she really recommend her homemade chai, it wasn't that good. The waiting time is very long, and she forgot... More

This cafe has a lot of potential, but the owner made us feel so incredibly uncomfortable during a simple breakfast that we wanted to leave. Some people should not be in the food industry if they don't handle multitasking, having more than one party in the shop, or keeping orders straight! This woman practically shouted at us explaining about her... More

We only got the coffee, which we are passionate about, as we roast and grind our own. This delivered! The owner is talkative....be prepared to visit if you engage her.

Nice to have a coffee, chockolate or so and a sandwich. Just go and try. The place is nice and of course Baños is good for a visit.
