First as Kokopelmana and then as Ananda, this was a beautiful place to enjoy nature and healthful food. It was open for the last months to sell produce, but the restaurant is now officially closed and no more veggies are for sale. A loss for Cotacachi.

A gorgeous setting just on the edge of town. Gardens are lovely. They sell fresh fruits and vegetables on Saturdays. They grow their vegetables. The breakfast selections are a bit different and delicious, and made from fresh ingredients. Don't miss it!

Beautiful grounds for exploring plus great place for brunch with focus on serenity. Easy walking distance from town. Fresh produce for sale but limited so you need to arrive early. I live in Cotacachi.

This place is kind of new to Cotacachi, but it was started out of a love for growing good and healthy food, which is always a great start for any restaurant. While their main joy is true organic gardening, they tool that passion and used it to start making healthy breads (gluten free), as well as offering bkfst and lunch on Th's and Saturdays. When you walk in through the deceptive gates, you find an oasis of gardens and landscaping. They could charge just to let you see their gardens and hear about their projects, but they don't. Put this on your list of places to see/eat at while you are in Cotacachi.

We really enjoyed a relaxing visit to Kokopelmana, first to pick up fresh-baked sour dough bread by a wonderful German baker, later to enjoy a vegan lunch and walk around the impressive gardens. we were sorry to miss the baby llamas, but find this a relaxing place. Can't wait to go back for the reiki massage.
