Fodor's Expert Review Dulceria Colonial

$ Quito Café
Diagonally across Plaza Grande from Hotel Plaza Grande and below the Catedral, this pint-size café deals in delicious baked goods, sandwiches, and more than a dozen types of coffee, among them cold brew and Vietnamese. The higos (figs) and cheese sandwich, a traditional Ecuadorian dessert, is served on two fluffy buns that taste much like brioche. It's not too sweet, but for an even more savory sandwich, try the pernil (roast pork shoulder) or the vegetarian, with cheese, lettuce, tomato, and avocado. Of the desserts, you can't go wrong with a thick slice of the housemade cakes, particularly the apple and banana. Free Wi-Fi and outdoor seating make this sweet spot particularly popular.
