Just by chance we entered the first time and we have been regulars since then.
Not only the coffee is great ,but the central location to the centro historico, the locro the papa and the humitas are just right.
Service prompt ,clean and music correct.
Free wifi,and great toilet,clean and original .

El Cafeto brews up fresh Ecuadorian coffee for locals and travelers alike to enjoy.

El Cafeto is perfectly located on Chile just a bit east of Plaza Grande (Plaza de Independencia).

This café attracts locals and visitors alike during the morning and mid-afternoon hours. They serve breakfast and lunch but if you want to be surrounded by locals show up for an afternoon cafecito con una humita.

The café also sells freshly roasted coffee (primarily from the Loja region of Ecuador) with the option to buy the beans whole or ground.

Really nice cup of coffee for around $1.50. Breakfast with eggs, bread, coffee, and juice for around $3.50. Fast wifi. Good overall place to take a break. Highly recommend.

We have been in Quito for several days and this has become our go to breakfast spot. The Original breakfast includes coffee, fresh baked bread, two eggs cooked to order and juice. Everything was delicious and all for the price of $4. The staff is very friendly and even though we don't speak Spanish, everything came exactly as we had ordered. The cafe is in the heart of the Old Town. The atmosphere is very pleasant. We want to go for the chocolate decadence before leaving Quito.
