They definitely know their coffee and also serve delicious cakes and tarts. The maracuya&mora tart was fantastic! Also serve breakfast (haven't tried).

Wonderful coffee with a huge variety of beans to choose from - best in Banos. Thin and tasty crepes in a relaxed atmosphere with interesting handicrafts and decor.
