I came to Fabiolita three times over 2 days. Enjoyed their lattes while I watched the goings on in the Plaza de la Independencia . Their lamb stew is delicious. I also tried one of the cold sandwiches which was fresh and fabulous.

For over 50 years at "Fabiolita" we have been preparing the most renowned Seco de Chivo (Lamb Stew) and Sanduches de Pernil (Ham Sandwiches) in Quito. Each morning we prepare all of our products with love and patience and we only use high quality and fresh products which we get in person at the local markets.
