I love a quirky place. And Pandala is the best. It is my every Tuesday falafel fix. No matter if it is on ciabatta bread or a pretzel roll, this is the best sanduche/sandwich around. I appreciate the variety of breads and the fact that...More

I can only recommend this place. Being vegan/vegetarian myself and struggling to find restaurants with proper veggie options in Ecuador, Pandala really lightened up my experience there. Opening the door and being greeted with a hug and warm bread (and an even warmer smile from...More

No exaggeration – Best bread in Ecuador. Better even than what I found in Quito or Cuenca (and I explored during an extended stay). Being able to buy artesanal chocolate spread, amaranth flour, pure honey, and rhubarb jam in the same place was a big...More

A must-visit vegetarian, gluten-free eatery in Cotacachi.....wonderful burgers, sandwiches, breads, and sauces, with a scrumptious salad bar to round out your meal. The owner, Yanneck, is a delight, and the staff is friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!

Yanneck does a great job with his breads...they are hands down the best in Cotacachi! His sourdough (that he sells at an alternate location) is terrific, his raisin bread is wonderful and his pretzel rolls are truly artisan. He is also the supplier of breads...More
