The Best Cafes in Guayaquil, Ecuador

Cafe culture fuels the city of Guayaquil and new, European-style coffee shops are cropping up in numerous trendy locations. French-style pastries have become a foundation for many bakeries in the city, but the traditional pastelería remains popular, especially in the heart of Guayaquil. Local coffee shops are popular on Thursday and Sunday evenings, when Guayaquileños head out for a traditional café y empanada with friends and family. Here’s our pick of the best.
Lúdica Coffee House
Cafe, Dessert Shop, Vegetarian, Dessert, $$$
