You'll find this on the top side of the Plaza de los Ponchos which is the main square for the handicraft market, it's sign posted. Don't let the appearance from the outside put you off. The decor and furniture are basic but they do the job.
Basically, it a shop run by a group of women making and selling delicious traditional home made pie. The menu consists of pie and cold drinks from the fridge, come to think of it I don't think they even have a menu, it's just the pies they cook on the day.
The pies are at the back of the shop in what can be only described as a glass cabinet/cupboard which has seen better days, it also acts as the serving counter.
You won't find any of your delicate fancy patisserie creations here. All the pies look the same until cut open. You'll have to ask what flavour each one is and don't be surprised if the staff don't speak English but with a smile they will make themselves understood.
The pies ranged from apple, blackberry, lemon meringue, chocolate, strawberry, blueberry and so on. Think i counted 10 in total. Each baked in a large deeply filled tin and cut into large door stop wedges, warmed when ordered and served with ice cream.
The service was good and helpful and don't be surprised if they are wearing aprons covered in flour remember they are doing the baking as well!
If your in Otavalo, take a break from shopping in the markets and go along and support these women, have a slice of traditional pie. Don't expect your usual traditional tourist restaurant here, locals also use this, if you want that go next door. You are coming here to have pie!
They also do take away pie as well mmmmmmm........
