Wonderful ambiance for English speakers. Delicious smooithies coffees and teas-including one that cured my indigestion. Owner Ray Hood makes you feel at home, and manages to turn out good curry dishes felafel and Mexican food. The 3.25 lunch special is reliably good. A great social gathering place also.

A great little backpackers cafe. Every night they played a different recent movie on their big screen tv, the decor is well done, the prices are decent and while just like most places we tried, the menu didn't have a ton of depth, the trout and potatoes was one of the best meals I had the whole trip. We also ate at the Casa Hood, (the place Lonely Planet says this place is trying to knock off) but liked Cafe Good better. The relaxing nightly movie was the deciding factor.

I went twice to Cafe Good. The first one was for breakfast and I found that everything was average. Since it was really close to my hostel and the book exchange was pretty good, both my girlfriend and me decided to have dinner there.

It was an error: the food was poor and the service wasn't very dedicated. We ordered nachos with guacamole as a starter but we got it after the main courses! Likewise, the main courses were small and not really tasty. Finally, I asked for an expresso...and simply got a black coffee.

With the wide range of excellent places to have breakfast and dinner in Banos...you can simply skip this one!
