We spotted this lunch venue while on the 'Hop On Hop Off' bus service and we were not disappointed. Try their Bacon. Lettuce and Tomato sandwich, delicious. Very friendly welcoming staff too.

This is run by a Peruvian family and they take a lot of pride in the food and service. The freshly squeezed juice was perfect as was the coffee. They also make great crepes as well as the usual cooked breakfast.

This was our choice for lunch in Gastown with all the offerings there. Was nothing to complain about but certainly not outstanding. Pretty standard fare for a sandwich place: fresh bread and fresh fillings that tasted like they should. I guess I expected something more out of the ordinary for a deli named "Gusto Latino" but, just the same, this was a good lunch spot. Service was very good with an attentive server. Coffee (regular) was rather without the gusto too; maybe I should have chosen one of the pricier drinks?
I am giving the 'VG' rating for the gelato which was outstanding. After tasting a couple flavors, I selected one of the fruity presentations but all were delicious. The others in our party seemed to agree with these comments so make this one times 4. I would come back if I had a longer stay and try some of the other dishes without hesitation.

this is a small business trying to find a place in a crowded market. Gelato, crepes, coffee, but it is the
Peruvian traditional food that is the find here. Cilantro and chicken soup is excellent, the fish sandwich perfectly cooked, wonderful pepper sauces. A find!
