Good clean place...not a huge selection but was a nice place. Garden is quite pretty. We had lunch and were the only ones there. It is part of a hostel which looks quite clean and inviting.

I'm not vegetarian but it was a welcome change to the usual rice, meat, plantain and beans. That being said the food wasn't outstanding, I had a feta and tomato tart, which was good but under seasoned and lacking in a bit of flavour. The same can be said of the accompaniments.

There is a nice fireplace where we had a drink first. Then we enjoyed a very good dinner with some local, as well as some international dishes. Very friendly and attentive service.

We went for the carrot cake but didn't like it. Chicken quinoa soup was good though. We didn't eat Angeles. Building and gardens are beautiful. Restful music and great rest break.

This is a great place to get french toast for breakfast or a nice dinner by the fire. They have vegetarian options, and nice patio for lunch, and cozy dining room for cool nights.

I enjoyed the quinoa shrimp salad for lunch. The shrimp were crunchy and the salad had a great dressing that really complimented the shrimp. A winner!

We dined at Cafe Pachamama several times during our stay at La Posada de Quinde. The service is quick and friendly, and the food is beyond spectacular. We loved everything we ordered, from the quinoa pancakes with homemade blackberry jam for breakfast to heavenly artisan pizzas for lunch to quinoa-crusted shrimp for dinner. Everything was fresh and made-to-order by the... More

We found this restaurant through trip advisor and had the best meal we've in Ecuador, it was so delicious. It was a Saturday night, and they had live traditional music which was fantastic. I had the broccoli and mushroom soup, and my boyfriend had the chicken pot pie, both were so tasty and the menus was so good we are... More

Description
Cafe Pachamama is located inside hotel La Posada del Quinde, just five blocks from the Plaza de Ponchos market. Our fireplace lounge, outdoor patio and garden provide something extra for travelers, as well as our freshly-prepared, organic food with local ingredients. To top it off, we offer more vegetarian options than any other restaurant in town and many delicious meat options as well. But even if you're not a vegetarian, we have plenty of meat-based dishes and burgers to please meat-eaters as well.
