“Best chocolate cake in 5 months”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

I chanced upon this chocolateria on my last day in Quito and I only wish I had discovered if earlier. Amazing chocolates and their cakes are to die for. Don't pass up on it if you happen to be in the area.

“all around great!”
Reviewed 9 December 2013

The coffee shop, chocolate selection and small odds and ends shop in the back are all well worth a visit while visiting La Ronda. Be sure to make this a destination you visit, for sure.

“Great Place”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

Although I did not taste their chocolate for which they are famous for, I did purchase a beautiful handmade shawl from Ecuador and a Panama Hat. The prices were very good and of better quality than the street/market prices. They gave us a sample of hot chocolate and it was very good. I would highly recommend this place. It is worth a visit to La Ronda Street.

“Coffee House: Needle in a Haystack!”
Reviewed 2 January 2012

The search is over folks! Khipus in La Ronda offers up the best if not the ONLY good coffee in Quito: Caps, Lattes, Mocha, good brew with beans from no other place than the Galapagos! I can't tell you what a relief it was to find this wonderful chocolate-coffee haunt in the historical centre. Ruth and Leo are the friendliest shopkeepers you'll meet. They understand the value of excellent coffee, exquisite chocolate and bang on service. If you're the type to suffer from altitude sickness, their selection of textiles and Ecuadorian arts and crafts can save you a trip up the mountains. Fresh hot tortillas and tamales, traditional canelazo at its finest, horchata and more: see for yourself- this place is a beacon!
