“Scrumptious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

A party of 6 of us went to Caskaffesu for a celebratory dinner and were not disappointed! The service was great and the food was excellent. We returned a couple of additional times during our stay in Mindo for fabulous, locally grown coffee.

“Best Espresso Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

We are espresso addicts and were so pleased to see a professional espresso machine at this lovely inn and restaurant. They owners grow their own coffee and roast the beans to a robust and flavorful result. The macchiatos were perfect. Ecuador grows great coffee but it's not easy to find the highest quality preparations. Their coffees are as good as you would find in the specialty cafes in US cities.

“Nice Atmosphere and Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2013

Mindo is already a nice town to visit and Caskaffesu adds to the wonderful atmosphere with a clean, comfortable cafe and B&B. The food was good, we really enjoyed the outdoor seating in a garden setting and the fireplace in the evening.

“Coffee heaven!”

Sat amid the plants in the quietness enjoying a coffee and ice cream. Always the best place to go for coffee in Mindo.

“Overpriced food and drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

The food is bland and overpriced, as are the drinks. When a member of our party sent his soup back, he was told it was fine and there was nothing wrong. Three others at our table also had the soup and only ate it because we were REALLY hungry, but it was very bland.

My friend ordered empanadas. They were the smallest flattest empanadas I have ever seen.

This place is also a hostel - The rooms are musty and poorly laid out. There is no place to put your clothes. If you like living out of your suitcase and don't mind roughing it, this is the place for you. Otherwise I found several other places I will try next time I'm in town.

The room was cheap, but still not a good value.

The owner helped us with reservations to several attractions. The lobby is quaint.
