What better way to start the day off right than with a healthy breakfast. These brunch spots in Ecuador’s capital, Quito will provide a delicious beginning to your day of exploring.
For breakfast or brunch in Quito, it’s hard to beat The Magic Bean. Familiar American dishes such as omelets, waffles and pancakes pair perfectly with fresh Ecuadorian juices and smoothies such as traditional Maracuya (passion fruit). The Magic Bean prides itself on organic, fresh food that can please everyone (including vegetarians) for breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are two locations—one just a block from Carolina Park and the other conveniently located in the tourist district of La Mariscal.
A short trek from the center of Quito you will find La Casa de Rafa. This tiny house captures the feel of the countryside as it is set in the valley of Tumbaco. On Saturday and Sunday the house provides a large organic buffet teaming with meats, cheeses, fruits and a variety of bread, jams, coffee and fruit juices.
