I have been to this place several times and I'm so glad I can finally leave a review for it!!! The place has the best sandwiches, my favorite one: vegetarian #3, omelette, cucumbers, tomatoes, cheese and about 30 cm long!!!! The soups are awesome and the other favorite of the menu. If you are craving veggies get the veggie soup!!!! If you have/are lactose intolerance tell them not to put cream in it. The pancakes are like little cakes and they can come with different fruits like apples and bananas!!!!! Those are my favorite things here but there are a lot more in the menu!!! The owners are from Baños so you will be hanging out with people from the town and costumers with good taste ;)
This is a family owned business, not that big so you have to be patience if there are a lot of people. Something we do sometimes is ordering and going do something else and then come back to sit down and enjoy. Of course when it is too busy. Enjoy for me when you eat there!!!

I've been in Banos for 5 weeks now. Walked by this place many a time, paused to take a look at the menu posted in the window, but never pulled the trigger.

Finally went this week (three times) and just love it. I've been carefully monitoring the cappuccino situation in town, as prices and quality are all over the place. The cappuccino here is, in my opinion, among the best in town. Not only that, but at $1.50, it is close to being the least expensive. And I love the ceramic cups they serve it in.

This is the first review for the Coffee Lounge. I know, because I contacted TA and asked them to list it. Save yourself some time and money. The Coffee Lounge serves the best sandwiches in town, hands down, no question about it. At VERY reasonable prices, typically in the three buck range. I've had sandwiches in town at double the price that were...to be generous...uninspired. They also have a breakfast, lunch and dinner menu and everything is really good. Friendly people, fast service.

One way I know I'm in a restaurant that I really like is if I find myself putting down the Kindle and/or book, and perusing the menu instead, keeping a rolling commentary running in my head..."oh, that looks good"..."have to try that one"..."definitely have to come back for dinner and try the mac 'n cheese..." It's that kind of place.

As a general rule, I shy away from talking about other restaurants in a review, but just have to say that the sandwiches here simply crush the competition from one of the nearby, highly reviewed sandwich shops. The one with the two word name, both words being the same
