Great place to have breakfast or lunch with friends and family. The service and food are consistently good. Lindsey and Adam have trained their staff well. If you want a little taste of back home in the EEUU you won’t be disappointed.

We have been there twice and both times were very happy with the food and service. Yes, the food is American oriented, but it’s good. The waiter we had both times was great. Nice location on San Sebastián Plaza.

They have a cool lunch menu which includes a small soup of the day and a medium salad of your choice for $6.75. The soup of the day was broccoli for me (cream soup with whole peaces of broccoli, really savory) and I chose the...More

This is clearly a "Gringo" place in Cuenca. Opens at 8.30am and you definitely should go there to have your breakfast! Wide range of offering, different coffees, pancakes, integral bread and so on. Size of portions - outstanding! Price is absolutely fair. Well known among...More
