Arte cafe & tea is probably the most delicate cafe and best service I've got so far. The workers and co workers are spectacular. This is a husband and wife cafe their name is                           Juan & Marie-lys Gonzalez this cafe is fantastic for adults and children the category for this cafe is on the French side the serve the best crepe. Crepe is a good little meal its like thin pancakes with your choice of filling but the best is the sugary crepes. THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Go and try there crepes and I'll guarantee you will love them and you will come back.                                                
They were so kind that they even got out of their way and helped us get back to Quito,Ecuador. They helped us arrange a taxi to drive us back they also had handicrafts at decent prices. We did not know the buses had no stops, it is a nonstop trip. They also helped us understand the pros and cons about buses here in baños,Ecuador. I am sure i will come back. There cafe is in baños ,Ecudor.

I ate there 4 times in my 5 days in baños. You can really see that the chef cares about the food that he is serving people.

Truly is French quality at Ecuadorian prices. :)

In fact, this could be some of the best coffee you'll be able to find anywhere in the world. They stock a very select variety of organic coffee from small plantations with unique characteristics. It's very rare indeed to find coffee from the Santa Marta region in Colombia (almost impossible to find it inside Colombia) and although the coffee from the Pichincha volcano is well-known it's the first time I've seen it on sale in Ecuador.
The place is run by a Colombian coffee sommelier who worked in Paris and his French wife who bakes the tastiest tarts and muffins that I've had in years!
You can also buy coffee grains.
