“Best coffee in Ecuador!”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

I recommend the Beehive in Mindo for everyone visiting Ecuador. I enjoyed a relaxed afternoon at the café after a day of discovering Mindo. Great coffee, beautiful view and very nice staff! I will definitely visit The Beehive again when I return to visit Ecuador.

“The Natural View and Honey”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I am glad to find you guys in TA and thought i should write you a review for the superb honey.

The honey is just amazing and I regret for having bought only a little now. I highly recommend this place for all travelers to Mindo for the best coffee and a great place to relax.

Hope to be there again soon. Love from India.

Thanks for the nice words. I told the bees this morning their honey made it all the way to India - and all they did was smile at me :-)

“More than just great local honey”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This is a new place is on the Main Street just a couple blocks before the bus station on the right side. It is owned and operated by a hardworking lovely family. They speak English, Spanish, French and German plus warm and friendly. Their place is small but cozy and they produce their own honey as well as make bread. We had a very nice pasta pesto there for lunch and enjoyed the close up view of the many hummingbirds just out back. We understand that they will be serving dinners soon and we are sure that they will be very nice as well. Overall just a nice place to pop in and have a chat with interesting people or have a cup of coffee and a nice snack or meal at the same time. We wish them success with their new business.

“Beehive is a MUST stop on your itinerary!”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

If you are in Mindo - or even around Mindo - try the Beehive. We came across it purely by accident and now it will be on our list of "musts". It's like sitting in your own living room, relaxing, family, hot coffee, and the smell of baked goods. You couldn't ask for nicer owners. They will go that extra step in helping you make your visit (and trip) the best. Highly, highly recommend!
