We took the (tips based) free walking tour at 10 am from the cathedral and ended up in the gardens at Pumapungo. On exiting near the bird area & the lake we discovered this waffle place, open air and quaint. Yummy lunch of waffles with fresh fruit and a choice of ice cream and toppings. Friendly owner. After leaving we... More

Little open air place with a cool concept! Jan the owner is a very personable guy and his waffles are the best. Different fruit toppings, sauces and ice cream. Great treat after you tour the bird sanctuary.

Waffles de Belgica (Belgium) is located in the far corner of the gardens below the ruins, by the aviary. After you have taken in the museum and ruins and gardens (admission is free) , you really need to stop at Waffles de Belgica. They are the best waffles in town, crispy on the outside tender on the inside, with ice... More

** Waffles by the Wiver ** We had passed by the Belgium Waffle Outlet several times during our visits to Pumapungo Ruins.  Today we had decided to make it our reason to visit that section of the Rio Tomebomba.  I am not a person who cares much for sweet foods but I have to say here I 'went overboard' on seeing the...

We came here for good waffles and Jan delivered some of the best waffles I have ever had! My wife is Belgian and we know our waffles, and these were damn good! Jan is a really nice guy from Bruges and we enjoyed chatting with him. We also enjoyed the outdoor setting, next to an aviary. If in Cuenca definitely... More

These Belgian Waffles are sooo good, your choice of sauces, then your choice of fruit or ice cream! Freshly sqeezed orange juice, fresh coffee...it doesn't get better than that! You eat outdoors, in a small area of the park, with the aviary right behind you! Great for families, singles, couples alike!

We went with another couple for breakfast/brunch because we'd heard so many good things about the waffles. We weren't disappointed in the least. The ambience is amazing with the beautiful grounds and numerous toucans nearby. We had waffles for brunch but in all honesty it felt more like dessert as they came topped with fruit and ice cream. Excellent food,... More

Great waffles! The setting is the thing. Stroll around these amazing gardens in the city center! The tucans and parakeets are nearby as well. The owner is a perfectionist when it comes to creating the real Belgian waffle. A must try in Cuenca!!!!

We went for a late breakfast on Sunday and it was a great way to get the day going. The waffles are amazingly light and so tasty, the ice cream, fruit and syrup worked perfectly, the whole thing was just brilliant. The owner was very friendly and we had a good chat. Not too expensive, worth every penny.
