“Delicious pies on plaza de ponchos”

Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Great place to stop for pies n ice cream. Is located directly on the sw side of plaza de ponchos about half way down the block. There is no signage on street level and no visible pies in the window so it can be hard to find. The place does not look like a pie shop, just another random diner. There is a large sign above it, but its impossible to see from the sidewalk on Saturdays. Once you find it you can choose from 10 or so different pies, including chocolate, blueberry, mulberry, orange and many others. It's $2 for the pie alone, or $4 for pie with ice cream(not cheap but good). They also serve sandwiches and a limited food menu but is way overpriced ($4.50/sandwich), chicken sandwich looked pretty good though. Good place to meet fellow travelers as it is popular with the gringos.

Good pie, light pastry fruity fillings, coffee was a good match for the pie.
The ladies there looked like they worked very long hours, so maybe not the most cheery personalities , but you come to eat pie not be entertained .

Listed in Lonely Planet, doesn't look anything special but never had such amazing pie!! About 10 different choices, we had over both visits Blueberry, Banana, Chocolate and Pinapple with ice cream!! Portions are big so make sure you have an appetite!!
Cost for two portions with ice cream and two bottles of water was about US $5

way overpriced, not even that good in my opinion. But the real downer was how rude the owner was to us. I was there with my husband and two children and we gave them a lot of business. We were so friendly, but she was just very sarcastic. Pie is decent, but nothing to write home about.

We read about this place in LP and stopped in. The woman behind the counter was very friendly and explained all the flavours to us. We asked for the price and were told $2 - more than LP ($1.30) but no big deal, then asked are they served warm and she said yes with ice-cream so we ordered a blackberry and sat down. The pie was very nice - dont see too many desserts of this style in these parts. When we went to pay we were told it was $4 - "what happened to $2?" - "you had it with ice-cream!" - "you didnt inform us that was a different order and would cost more". At this point the woman turned around and walked into the kitchen and tried to wait us out - we followed her in to ask why the doubling in price and she refused to speak to us. I guess you can be rude to the tourists as they arent coming back.
People might think $4 is not a lot of money but here it is two lunches of 3 courses and it is also the price of a return ticket from Quito (thats over 4 hours of travelling). Doesnt surprise me to see problems with pricing in reviews below - a real shame as most of our experiences in Ecuador have been really honest with little discrepancy b/w tourists and locals.
