The coffee here is very good and it’s a nice place really close to the park. It’s not as cheap as the other places in Otavalo, but the coffee is several times better. The first time I came here there was a very friendly woman...More

This is cute coffee shop located in the corner of the main square in Otavalo. Great coffee, juices, treats and more with a good view of the beautiful historic town center. It only has outside bar type seating, so it's perfect on a sunny day....More

After spending a few months away from home, I was missing the comforts of a good, classic PB&J. I was so happy to find this little store front. Their coffee was delightful and their peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were obviously the highlight.

This is a wonderful little coffee shop with just a few seats at the counter, but great for watching people and taking in the atmosphere of Otavalo. Good coffee is not as easy to find in Ecuador, but if you like good coffee go here!

Just off Bolivar Plaza this place is a little gem. We had a cold coffee as it was such a hot day and it was lovely. If you like good coffee come here!

We stumbled upon the Daily Grind accidentally and were delighted in the coffee and service. The location is great, pull up a red stool and say hi to your neighbor. The pastries looked delicious. The Daily Grind also serves beer and cocktails.

Description
This terrific little espresso bar is right in the middle of Otavalo on Parque Bolivar. It serves the best coffee in Ecuador and fresh baked cupcakes and pastries every day. If you're lucky you'll be there when the zucchini nut bread comes out of the oven. It is served warm with whipped cream. The rum cake is like heaven on earth and worth savoring. There is a private garden behind Daily Grind where you can sit at tables and enjoy the flowers.
