It is a great place to get a taste of the finest French pastry in Quito, it actually qualifies as a pastry place than an actual restaurant., so, don't expect main dishes or complete meals here. It is always innovative having new delightful sweet creations every time.

Cyril Prudhomme is a talented pastry and chocolate maker. This café is incredible. The pastries, breads, and cakes are not only delicious, they are works of art. So much so, that photography inside the café is not permitted. His selection of chocolates range from small pieces to sculptures! The service is excellent, coffee superb, and one of my favorites are... More

What keeps me coming back is the ice cream. I think it's some of the finest you'll ever have—each flavor is an exquisite composition. I've yet to be disappointed by one, and there's always something new to try. Today, I went for "Queen's Secret Garden", an impossible concentration of fragrances delivered in a frozen texture that is both rich and... More

The pastry and bread are superb. Even to seat there and see people cross by with a great cup of chocolate is an awasome experience. Not recommended for haters of sweets.

A 'must' for foodies! French style deserts and good herbal tea. It is usually crowded at tea time, and you have to wait to get a table.

Even if you are not a chocolate buff, at Cyril there are great breads and always something new and tempting in the world of pastry and special gifts. If you are a fan of chocolate, this is heaven....!!

Try any of the specialties and accompany them with coffee or chocolate, you will not want to leave the site. It is well located in a sector suitable for walking. Close to the commercial and financial areas, as well as good restaurants.

Cyril is world-class and at mid to high Ecuadorian prices. The breads are as good as I have had anywhere and the chocolates are delicious. The pastries are just like in France and while I don't go in much for the very creative deserts and biscuits they look awesome. The place has a great vibe between music, artistic expression and...
