“Great Coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2014

What a Gem this place is! It's on a side road but if you find it, take the time to sit and visit and enjoy a great cup of coffee and sweets. The decor is fabulous! It's such a great place for a break and great coffee made in different parts of Ecuador. They also have tea!

“Excellent gourmet cafe , cool atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

Juan is a master of coffee. The place is simply fantastic with choice of coffee from various regions of Ecuador and colombia. It was so good, I bought some great intag coffee to take home.
cool atmosphere and lovely deserts make this place the best chill out place in banos. A must visit.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

The crepes were so good we went multiple times while in banos. The $6 combo is massive, so I would recommend starting with one crepe and if still hungry order a second one after. My favourite meal I had was the vegetarian crepe. The coconut hot chocolate and the peanut butter hot chocolate are absolutely delicious. It's a really cute cafe, and the hammock chairs outside are really comfortable.

“Best coffee in Ecuador!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

We went here for a brunch on our last day in Baños and went back later that same afternoon. The coffee was fantastic, both hot and cold varieties. We had both savoury and sweet crepes, both of which were delicious. Service was very friendly and it felt very relaxed.
I can't recommend this place enough, I loved it. It's a must if you're in Baños.

“Best place for a snack”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

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.
