Great option for vegans in Cuenca

I had a lovely vegan breakfast here. They have many options. The price was great and the portion was very large. I paid $5.50 for potato hash, a veg scramble, juice, and a fruit salad.

Pros: Many vegan options, Great atmosphere , Good prices

Decent breakfast

We tried the vegan pancakes and vegan rancheros. Both were alright, but I was not overly impressed. They weren't bad, so still recommended as a vegan breakfast if you're in the area, but I'm sure one can find better elsewhere.

Edit: we also tried their vegan apple pie and the vegan blackberry pie. Both were quite good!

Pros: Amazing food, Friendly staff, Good prices

Cons: Cash only

Muy simpáticos

Hay opciones veganas y libres de gluten. El menú indica las opciones claramente. El joven fue muy simpático y me enseñó el menú cuando solo fui por postre.
There are vegan and gluten free options. The menu clearly marks these options. The young man was very nice and showed me the menu when I only went for dessert.

Great, friendly service

Came here to hang out and study. Had drinks and snacks. All staff are super friendly and spoke good English to counteract my poor Spanish.
They were easily able to explain what was or what could be made vegan.
Hoping to come back for a main meal soon as the menu looks amazing!
(Wish I could give 5*)

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Friendly, knowledgeable staff

Would definitely recommend

If you like Mexican style dishes and vegan sweet pies than this is the place for you. The place was very cute and cosy, staff were wonderful and spoke English and the food was awesome and so cheap! The meals we had came with a free juice, would recommend you try the guava sounding fruit (can't remember the name).

Coffee and cake!

Almond and soya milk available. Coffee was very good! The day I went they also had banana choc peanut brownie, which was rich and indulgent :)
Menu looked pretty nice - we didn't eat any savoury, but saw some customers with food that looked good and big portions. Several veggie options, and probably vegan too (sandwiches, burritos, salads)
Nice venue, with some outdoor seating too. Friendly staff

Pros: Good coffee, with choice of veg milk, Cake!!, Reasonable price
