We found The Beehive on our first day in Mindo and ate here three times during our stay. We got very excited about the refillable Smorgasboard as it is the first time in over a year we have eaten proper cheese and they have good wine to!!! Ingo was very friendly, great source of local information. A fantastic culinary break... More

I loved the Beehive! The owners were very friendly and my friend and I had many great conversations with them. We found the Beehive the first day we were in Mindo and went back every day! The Beehive was one of the highlights of my trip to Mindo!

Saw this little shop on the way into Mindo on the bus from Quito. It was my first stop and last stop in my amazing Mindo adventure. The coffee is delicious (and I'm a coffee snob from Brooklyn). The meals are well made, filling and very tasty! You get to watch hummingbirds flit around at the feeders and see the... More

Before caching the bus back to Quito, we stopped here for breakfast. I think it is impossible to find a better place for breakfast! We have been traveling in Southamerica for four months now and this was simply the best breakfast we ever had while traveling. On top of that, you can watch the birds and chat with the friendly...

Having so much fun reading all the reviews and best responses from Ingo. We are visiting Mindo x'mas 2014 family of 4 and cannot wait to 'experience' the wonder of this place. I can sense the adventure already. This is exciting for I have never written a review before I visit. Keep up the good vibes & laughs Beehive. Watch... More

Oh boy! Is that a promise or a threat? Papa had a little accident - he fell and hurt his back. He is in good care, our daughter brings him some cake and fruits. He is bad on his feet though. But he is also a tough wood-man and will hopefully be back up by the time you scream !Hola!... More

This is a great place to relax, have a good beer, coffee, wine, and wide variety of lovely food. Ingo the manager is nearly a one man floor show at times. A really nicely done place and very reasonably priced.

Really good coffee and desert in this little cafe. I loved watching the hummingbirds as I sipped my coffee. They also do beekeeping tours which were unfortunately booked out when I was there so if you are interested try to book ahead.

We stopped in with a group for breakfast and were not disappointed. The coffee was delicious, the food was amazing, the ambiance was relaxing, and the view beautiful. Prices felt very reasonable for the amount of food we got. I've been out of the States for 4 months now, and this is by far the best breakfast I've had since... More
