“Yummy food & coffee, expat hangout”
Review of Coo Coo's Nest

Coo Coo's Nest
Ranked #2 of 2 Dessert in Cotacachi
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 January 2018

Fabulous carrot cake muffin and hot chocolate (not overly sweet). Lots of other home made goodies to tantalize you but one person can only eat so much. Next time I'll try the coffee and home made quiche, or maybe a sandwich on homemade sourdough bread.

It's not right on the street, just a little bit tucked away. But a sign out front makes it easy to find. I really like the location since you feel more private and can still sit outside and people watch as you relax.

Owned by expats Deb and Dan, this place is also an expat hangout and good place to meet people. Their coffee/lunch spot is back in the corner. Right next door, Dan has a used book store. So if you'd like a nice book in English, for that long bus or airplane ride, come here.

The staff here is so friendly and the food is so delicious that I rarely go elsewhere. Ice cream will never be the same for you after you have eaten it here! Hagen Daz will taste like mud! I highly recommend. $1 for a bowl.

This small place is only open Wednesday through Friday. Their baked goods are terrific and the homemade ice cream is heavenly. Highly recommended falvors are coffee (or coffee with brownies), strawberry, mango and coconut. This place offers breakfast and sandwiches at reasonable prices. Anita is such a friendly hostess/cook/server.

Nice American run place. Not sure what they specialize in but I saw that they had homemade ice cream. I enjoyed a plate of chicken salad that was quite delicious. The owner was there and attentive to the customers.
