La Cosecha Coffee Shop

Top choice cafe in Otavalo

This contemporary cafe with Santa Fe–like adobe walls and minimalist design wouldn't look out of place in a cool outer-borough NYC neighborhood (it even serves bagels!). Sandwiches on homemade focaccia bread are made with local ingredients, and the cappuccinos and hot chocolate are fine, indeed.

Easily the Otavalo spot to catch up on work (if you've brought your laptop) or reading, or just for respite from shopping on Plaza de Ponchos.
