Stylish cafe in Mindo

This stylish cafe is on the main road as you enter downtown Mindo. The interior is nice and inviting. When we visited the power was out in the entire town, but we were still able to get a glass of pineapple juice here. We didn't try anything else, but would be happy to go back.

I visited with friends and enjoyed coffee on their terrace. The owner is friendly and easy to talk to (he is German and speaks English, Spanish, and German, at least). I would recommend it as a place to relax either before or after other activities in Mindo.

The owner would be raking it in. Paid $9 USD for two coffees. They were possibly the most terrible coffees I've ever had in my life. I'd definitely recommend getting a coffee from one of the locally owned places, so much nicer, and only a tenth of the cost.

2 double shot espresso lattes with a extra shot of vanilla taste out of a italian espresso machine are 11$ - looks like we did not charge you enough. Nevertheless: i would like to see you ask for that someone else in town.... Coffee-machine? Instant it is! Latte?? Double Hot?? Vanilla taste?? Enjoy your coffee..... More

The best thing about The Beehive is the cozy terrace, with the soothing murmur of the river and the humming of Colibris. You are bound to have a long lazy meal. The food is excellent too and oh! the portions are really big! The choice of food is good too. The coffee is excellent. I loved the fact that they... More

Humming birds humming next to you while you are having lunch - yes that's 'The Beehive' for you. Don't miss the trout served with calamari and prawns. The ice-cream is made with local berries right there. I highly appreciate the fact that the owners take extra effort to source their ingredients locally. And yes, if you have any question about...

I had four days in Mindo. So far I've eaten here twice with two different breakfasts and both times they have been spectacular. The staff are friendly and the prices are very good.

The balcony is nice and the coffee is wonderful. The service isn't that great and nor is the price. They have good WiFi and a good view, as well as couches and a lounging area. Give it a try, but don't expect to be impressed.

Don't let the review below deter you from coming here. The owner is great, he's actually quite funny! I suppose don't come here if you have no sense of humor, he's German some people don't get it?
