Alex makes everything you'd want with your coffee.. He makes his own desserts, cheeses, pies, and of course brews a great coffee. The Coffee House is a cozy establishment and Alex is a delight. Go and taste for yourself.

This place is a real gem, with great coffee, good deserts, and best of all, Alex, the proprietor! He's bilingual (Spanish/English), and a great guy. He knows a lot about Cuenca, and shares his knowledge freely. I also learned a lot of Spanish from him in conversation. It's an important place for my wife and me, and a great comfort to know of its exisitence.

Wonderful ambiance. Delicious desserts like passion fruit and Oreo cheesecake, key lime pie, carrot cake, chocolate caramel cake, rice pudding cake and many more.

Exceptional service. The owner goes above and beyond to customize your order the way you like it it.

Highly recommend.

Excellent coffee shop in Cuenca! The coffee is delicious, as is the hot chocolate. The pastries are excellent - in our time there we tried the Oreo cheesecake, Passion fruit cheesecake, chocolate caramel cake, apple cake, banana cake, carrot cake, quiche, chocolate cupcakes and more. Everything was delicious.

Jaime (who goes by Alex, his middle name), is welcoming and friendly, not to mention helpful in asking for destination recommendations around Cuenca. He is extremely personable and sweet and greets everyone like a new friend. In fact, when we left Cuenca, we had to go say goodbye, because we felt like Alex had become a friend that we would truly miss.

The Coffee shop itself is located in a colonial-style building, but the interior is fairly modern. It has natural materials in the stairs, loft, etc., giving the shop a very clean, warm, cozy ambience. There is downstairs seating and also an upstairs loft. There is also good wi-fi if you are looking for internet. Colombian Coffee House is popular with tourists and travelers.

I HIGHLY recommend stopping in for a coffee and a pastry. I wish I could transport myself there every morning! Such great coffee and ambience, I can't say enough positive things about it!

This location has been a restaurant before but now as a coffee shop the location seems to have found its right tennant. Jaime is starting out small and for now runs the shop alone but I am sure that is soon to change. With a small oven he is making excellent pastries, quiche and Colombian style stuffed baked potato.
If you are one of those gourmet coffee drinkers who thinks the only good coffee is expensive coffee then perhaps Jaime's 75 cent cup is not up to your standards but for an Americano coffee, it is a hit with me. i tried the quiche lorraine and found it full of flavor, a good price at 2.50 a slice and a very nice portion for that price.
For the physically challenged the 3 steps down might be difficult and the tight narrow stairs going up to the loft seating very difficult. i can see jaime growing out of this little niche quickly but I would recommend to him to keep it just as he is doing, eventually hire a person or two to help as he grows and to keep everything simple.
My advice to potential customers is to go and experience the friendly duo language personality of Jaime and do it quickly before you end up waiting in line for a seat or coffee to go.
