I don't drink coffee so I can't tell you how the coffee is(though friends say it is excellent) , but there hot chocolate and juices are the best. The furniture is homey and the atmosphere very friendly. Expats and Ecuadorians mingle in a comfortable atmosphere. There are three levels to the cafe so there is lots of room for socializing....

This cafe is an act of love. Promoting locally grown Intag Coffee and simple breakfasts. They also have arts and crafts from women's coop. It's a good meet up place for people from the Intag. I do wish they'd have a greater variety of food.

Being so called "aussie coffee snobs" we have been struggling to find anywhere in South America that serves good coffee. Intag was recommended and lived up to its reputation. Great coffee and great service!
