I dined here twice last March while on a day trip from Otavalo.The coffee was reasonably good and there was a fair selection of pastries to choose from...Service,however could have been better and was rather slow...Overall I can give this place 6 out of 10.

The cafe itself is just adorable!
The coffee (Colombian, like the owner) is outstanding and the pastries are delicious!

I loved this cafe. I frequently went there to do work, totally felt safe with my laptop and the food was so good! Especially the desserts... their brownie is easily the best i've had in Ecuador. The owners were always so nice and welcoming, I felt very comfortable here. Great location as well since it's right in the center!

Best coffeeshop in Ibarra, hands down! Wonderful people, welcoming atmosphere and supurb menu. Lived in Ibarra for 2 months and Annie and Mauricio (the owners) quickly became dear friends. Visited dozens of coffee shops in Ibarra and can honestly say El Quinde tops them all. Try the Affagato and the Pie de Lemon. Views overlook a bustling and lush park. Extra perk: Annie teaches refugees how to create beautiful beaded jewelry and sells their jewelry in-store.
