Great coffee at good price. Very smooth and yummy. Served in house or to go. They give a piece of chocolate and two sugars to add. I had a double shot latte.

It was a rainy day in Banos so i decided to go to this little gem. The place is beautiful decorated, there are hammocks to relax and read a book. The staff is friendly. A nice place to hang out in a rainy day !

We enjoyed a great double espresso. After a short chat with the owner about his famous Ponche Suizo, we got a small try. The Ponche Suizo tasted great. Definitly coming back!
