This little coffee stand is right next to one of my favorite bakeries, FicPan. It's easy to grab a pasty there and a cup of coffee here and then sit in the park across the street and enjoy my treats. The service here is always...More

Stopped here for a break from the busy market. Friendly and quick service and a nice little court yard out the bag with good wifi. Happy campers!

The barista was certainly friendly enough, but the experience was more like a drink up and go, with 5 bar stools virtually right on the sidewalk, I look for a place where I can maybe spend an hour or more. The coffee was fine, but...More

This terrific little espresso bar is right in the middle of Otavalo on Parque Bolivar. It serves the best coffee in Ecuador and fresh baked cupcakes and pastries every day. If you're lucky you'll be there when the zucchini nut bread comes out of the oven. It is served warm with whipped cream. The rum cake is like heaven on earth and worth savoring. There is a private garden behind Daily Grind where you can sit at tables and enjoy the flowers.
