Great coffee, solid dinner menu - we stopped by here a couple of times while in banos. The trout was tasty, as was the steak (although it was over cooked). Nice family that runs it, and they have a happy hour too!

We passed by this cafe-restaurant and its beautiful decoration invited us to enter. They serve cappuccinos and desserts very well prepared, in addition the service is very pleasant and the owner speaks English very well.

Best steak I've had in 5 years in Ecuador. So good, went back the next night for a second one. All meals arrived at the same time done to perfection.
