I stopped here for a drink whilst trying to decide where to have dinner. The barman was very helpful with my mediocre Spanish but I ended up with an expensive dark Belgian beer, which wasn't to my taste. They have sandwiches, tortillas and salads. Good wifi.

I've read on TA they have great beer and coffee. None of them turned out to be true. While the decor and ambience may be ok, the rest was NOT ok. The happy hour is only monday to wednesday. So we start with famous beer. Bartender dressed in sleek attire suggested we try samples first. Good idea, since they also... More

Very cozy place right in the heard of the town. We tried beer, cafe and also some coctails during happy hours and everything was excelent. The only place in the town where they know what really is an espresso. The brew their own beer that really tastes like back home. Coctail were strong and tasty. Definitely recomendable!

Nothing wrong with the place but I'm not paying central London prices in equador, sorry, latacunga which is hardly a massive tourist hot spot. Actually I am being a bit harsher than normal because we ordered two white Russian cocktails which were the most expensive we have paid in south America and also the worst.

This bar is nice to have a drink. A nice place to chill and hang out. Although the prices are out of range compare to the other bars. The coffee is good and the beer was ok. The cocktails are two for one before 7pm and they have wifi available. All in all a nice place but expensive compare to... More

This is a lovely cafe/ bar which serves snacks and Scrumptious chocolate cake. Great comfortable seating amongst wall paintings of the history of the Knights Templar. It is an oasis of calm to relax and enjoy. The food is great, coffee wonderful and they brew their own delicious beer.
