I enjoyed the cake and the coffee. Would have loved to have a full meal there but did not have time. The owner is welcoming and friendly. This is a nice place to visit.

Wonderful wholesome food, with a good menu with lots of selection; we came back twice and there was still more to order. The owner is lovely and it's a great relaxing cafe to come to for a cheap bite to eat. All round one of the best places in Mindo.

This is a unique and relaxing little restaurant, a Mindo gem, owned by a well-traveled, passionate chef from the U.S. Relax in the seating outside and enjoy watching Mindoans go about their daily activities. The service is friendly, efficient, and you will enjoy meeting Tim (owner), who is a very personable guy and fun to talk with. But most of all, you will enjoy great coffee (hard to come by in Mindo restaurants), and delicious dinners and deserts. If you're health conscious, the creamy vegetable soup is outstanding and served with home baked bread. Don't miss it. In Ecuador, all good meals begin with the soup! The menu offers something for everyone, and all the food I've tried was prepared with loving care. I'm waiting for him to do a California Hamburger...I know it would be a huge success, because a good one is hard to come by in Mindo. I've learned that Tim travels to Quito regularly in order to buy the best ingredients. Like the parmesan cheese and Italian sausage. Unique in Mindo! I visited with a friend this weekend and tried the pizza for the first time. It was out of this world, with a good crust and so much flavor because of the real Italian salami used. And I might add that the prices are more reasonable than similar restaurants in Mindo. For example, a cup of rich and fragrant french pressed coffee is still only $1.00, and the soup I mentioned $1.50! Also, there is a free book exchange, so if you're traveling solo, there's something to read! Enjoy your stay in Mindo, one of the most beautiful places in Ecuador.
