What I like best, besides the location and good service is the fact that you can get a complete American breakfast with home fries and excellent homemade grain toast. The bread can be bought for $5 a loaf. Most prices are high, no deals here....More

I've been going to Sebas for a few days now and it feels to me like the top coffee place in town. It's not only located in such a beautiful area of Cuenca with the colonial square, church, and buildings, it offers a great menu...More
