“coffee masterpieces”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

coffee drinks were like art- carefully prepared, swirled, decorated, adorned with a little chocolate heart to savor while sipping the most suave cups of coffee in ecuador- a welcome change from the usual instant coffee junk everyone drinks. they have hammock chairs and play nice music... free wifi. cant go wrong.

oh wait- and they have food...crepes with meat or veggies or sweet chocolate. just as tasty as the coffee!

“Best coffee in Ecuador”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I travelled 11 weeks through Ecuador and in every town I visited I searched for places serving good (ecuadorian) coffee. I was very happy to find Arte Cafe & Te. It is a very nice place to sit and relax and in my opinion they serve the best coffee in Ecuador (espresso and cappuccino). I also like the dedication of the owner to coffee.
Besides the coffee you can eat good crepes at this place and you find there nice souvernirs (e.g. necklaces, earrings) of good quality.

Nothing to much to add really. Best place for a light dinner or lunch in my opinion in Banos.
Great WiFi, very charming.

“Fantastic place to relax and enjoy a coffee!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

On our trip to Banos we stayed at this beautiful cafe every single day. It was the best we found in whole Banos! The atmosphere is very relaxing, the food is excellent as well as coffee and tea.

When in Banos please pay this cafe a visit, you won't regret it. :)

“Best coffee and hot chocolate in south america!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

I have to agree with everyone else, this place was fantastic. Only wish we had known before that they rented rooms as it would have been great to have based yourself here and work through the menu. They also sell interesting gifts.
