We fell in love with this place, the owner and his staff. The waffles were as one woman in our group said "Best Ever"! Owner was funny and a great conversationist. His assistant was sweet and attentive. Well worth the trip!

Friendly service and wonderful waffles with ice cream and fruit for a great value. The setting is at the base of the indigenous ruins in the heart of Cuenca. The atmosphere is outdoors so your experience is subject to the weather.
