If you are interested in giving a typical Guayaquil breakfast a try and don't mind standing in line for 20 minutes to order plus driving around 10 minutes for a parking spot, go ahead. You are not seated, you have to find a plastic table and hang on to it while someone else in your party lines up to order,... More

A little bit more expensive the expected and the Bolón de Verde could be better in my opinion but it's good. If you are on the run, or just arrived in Guayaquil then this is the place to go. It's very nearby the airport and you can get full easily. The ají and yucas were different to what I'm used... More

In Guayaquil, Café de Tere is perhaps the best place to enjoy a good breakfast of the typical style of the Ecuadorian Coast, with confidence because its 7 premises are safe, clean, its delicious products, the work area is well organized. I find it very good to enjoy with family or friends.

The best platain with cheese (bolon con queso) or plantain with "chicharrón" (pork) or "mixto" (bolon with cheese and chicharrón) for breakfast. Or pick the "tigrillo" (plantain and eggs scrambled with some milk amd cheese). You may add chicharrones as well. Very good "empanadas" also.

I dont know but I have traveled around Ecuador before. I have visited a place called Piñas where I first tried the "tigrillo" is a mixture of egg, plantain, cheese and some kind of bacon. I still remember it to be a great experience. Even tough, the place I went to didn't have a credit card reader, it was a... More

The food, coffee, juice and staff are excellent. We had there the best coffee in Guayaquil and the plantain lunch was amazing too. The prices however are higher than anywhere else in Guyaquil

The Café de Tere is an icon for breakfast in Guayaquil, if you want to eat a good traditional breakfast this is a good option. They have all the mixtures of green bananas, Manabi´s breakfasts, meat and rice (for breakfast) and the famous green banana balls stuffed with cheese and fried pork. The place has no charm, you will surely... More

I have been going to Cafe de Tere for breakfast every time we visit family in Guayaquil, some times straight from the airport if flight arrives early AM. It is always busy and you will be in line a few times before you get to eat, but all lines are very organized. Be patient food is worth waiting for. Tigrillo... More

The CAFE DE TERE is an excellent option for breakfast, because it offers a wide menu from something nutritious to a bolon with fried egg and a delicious orange.
