Restaurant details
Dining options: After-hours
Description: 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.

“Finally real coffee!!!”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

After traveling for a few months abstaining from drinking crappy coffee I was delighted when I stumbled upon this place. A really nice little coffee place to perch while you have a coffee and people watch across from the main square. Although the coffee was a bit milky it was definitely refreshing from the other rubbish that has been served up elsewhere.

“great coffee”
Reviewed 29 December 2013

Not a coffee snob by any stretch but having a fresh ground cup of coffee after the instant stuff around the country made my nose & taste buds cry for joy! Good prices, cool staff. This is really just a coffee /tea stand, not a restaurant. A few stools at the counter.

A great place to recharge after shopping at the market. Ecuador coffee is excellent- you can buy beans and chocolate here.

“Good coffee on Parque Bolivar”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

This attractive little stall has excellent upscale coffees, snacks and even bagels, right on Parque Bolivar, near the church, plus very friendly servers. A welcome addition to Otavalo, it is indigenous owned and run, and caters to both locals and foreigners.
