This restaurant is right outside the Charles Darwin Center area. The restaurant has some glitzy mannequins and unusual outdoor décor and I was a bit hesitant to eat there. However, we ate there anyways because we were waiting for the Charles Darwin Center to open...More

Stopped in for breakfast one day and loved the ambiance! Breakfast was fresh and affordable and the decor is charming and fun. Great coffee. Stop in if only for that. They also have full bar service and a pool table for an evening cocktail.

Funky little place on the way to Darwin. Came here just for drinks at night, good music, fun vibe. Can't comment on the food, but a very eclectic place for drinks. Cheers

Discovered by coincidence. We were not really expecting to find such nice place with well designed garden and chill atmosphere. Good food plus a few vegetarian options. The best place in Santa Cruz :)

If you want a real espresso in a funky and fabulous setting, head to this charmer. Plants & eclectic art surround. Great breakfast. Great bar! And the whole family provides wonderful warm service.

After a walk through Estacion Charles Darwin and a stop at the beach there, I stopped at Buganvilla for an iced coffee....excellent and refreshing. Honestly, I did not eat there, so I can't comment on the food. The service was very friendly.

Being a vegetarian and based on previous reviews about vegi burger, decided to try the cafe. But turned out to be a terrible idea, veggie burger was just an ordinary one, not worth $10. Also Paid $10 for the vegi sandwich which doesn't even have...More

Happy hour here is always a great time for drinks with friends. The menu has a few vegetarian options like a veggie burger and a yummy veggie burrito. Vegetarian options in Puerto Ayora restaurants are scarce, so this was a happy find.
