Malecon Julio Izurieta without number, Puerto Lopez, Ecuador
Cafe Bambu Puerto Lopez Reviews
Multitask Cafe, Internet & Bar - Cafe Bambu Sep 13, 2009
When we arrived to Puerto Lopez, it was a bit cool and rainy. So the original idea of having a cocktail on the beach was replaced for having a warm cup of coffee.
This place is small, but you can't miss the bright green and orange of the sign at the entrance. Yes, this is a cafe, but also internet and bar, hahaha.
There are a couple of tables outdoors, a small bar on the first floor and the 2nd is about 2 other tables and some computers for Internet. Actually the kitchen is next to them and you can see while they are preparing the coffee.
Their specialty is the coffee, which they toast by themselves. The grains are from another town nearby, Jipijapa. They have different coffee drinks including alcoholic ones.
They use small cups and really lovely shot glasses. If you don't want a coffee, they also have hot chocolate, tea and milk. It was a surprise for me to see they also have foreign beers, not very common in small towns. Also offer spirits.
We were here in the early evening, so we didn't eat, but saw they serve breakfast too.
The staff is very kind and helpful. Actually one of them came to our table just to tell us the story of the coffee and cacao, hahaha.
Here I got a coffee with a dash of milk and Shawn got a coffee with a liquor. Coffee was good and strong. I love how they brought his liquor on flames ;)
If you are in town and want a good cup of Ecuadorian coffee, this is a great choice :)
Part of the Yes, Ecuador again: beach, sun, a birthday, food and so much fun :) travel blog
