I like this restaurant. i am an early riser so this is the place I would always have breakfast. The waitress was very nice. I didn't like the flies. they should give the costumers a fly swatter.

Best Bagets in Baños for Sure, I recommend to buy and make your own sandwiches, they also have other types of bread. i would recommend also to try the black German bread, which i liked a lot.

Not sure that all the good reviews here are deserved! Bread is very nice, coffee is terrible (bitter and lumpy milk), and it was quite pricey! $6.5 for the Ecuadorian breakfast, & my boyfriend wanted some bacon with his simple breakfast & this cost $2extra for the smallest strip of bacon. Waitress did not give a damn either. Loads better... More

The breakfast had good coffee (difficult to find in Baños) and good portion sizes for coffee and food. The staff were friendly which is not always the case in Baños. We paid less elsewhere for breakfast and were very disappointed. We will be coming back here. Free WiFi.

A good place to eat breakfast in the morning. My wife and I have breakfast here each time we visit Banos. There is a good selection of food and the bread is fresh. They give out large portions of coffee so that you leave the restaurant satisfied. Lastly, the workers always provide a small cup of coffee and some bread... More

Stop by here for breakfast - but come early while the bread is pipping hot from the oven. This is a popular breakfast spot for locals and tourists alike. Make sure to order the homemade delicious hot chocolate - you can get coffee or tea anywhere - but only here can you get some of the best hot chocolate. All... More
