“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

Wanted something different than eggs for breakfast. Their standard desayuno is a crepe, juice, toast, and coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Crepe was unremarkable and small. Hot chocolate was expensive though.

The biggest plus for me was that I felt safe drinking their juice, which I don't tpically do in Ecuador.

“Good for breakfast on the main drag”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

This is an interesting place to have a good cup of coffee with a decent choice for breakfast. The service was a bit slow though, and they didn't have what I had asked for (which is always annoying, considering that it was on offer in the menu.)
I don't consider it to be cheap, but you do get to sit on the terrace in the main street. It's a pity they close at noon.

“Great Desayuno”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Their coffee is wonderful and the breakfasts are good value at $3.50. This is a little oasis just off the main street where you can sit in the sun or inside.

“simple food simple coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I used to go there almost everyday till they stopped serving some things, then I had a close look (by accident ) to the small kitchen and how they prepare things, haven´t been there since, is good atmosphere though you can grave a coffe while sitting in Riobamba´s main boulevard
