Save to wishlist

For American-style pie, check out Lucia Pie House in the La Floresta neighborhood. They have the crisp, flakey pastry down pat and fillings are delicious, if not all traditional. Favorites include Lemon Meringue (Pie de Limon) and Classic Cheesecake.

Caffeto

Restaurant with Rooms, South American, Dessert, Tea , Vegetarian, Ice Cream
Save to wishlist

Caffeto makes ice cream concoctions like banana splits and brownie sundaes that are out of this world. While they have many traditional favorite flavors such as chocolate and vanilla, be sure to try some Ecuadorian tropical fruits like guanabana and maracuya. For the non-ice cream lovers, the cakes and pastries are very tasty too.
