Recommendation for Taita Panadería Cafetería, bakery and café

I've been looking for a good, French-style croissant in Cuenca without any luck (full disclosure: I've been here only 3 months). But today, I stumbled upon Taita, on Calle Larga, near Todos Santos church. My butter croissant was quite good (would have been better earlier in the day), and I sampled their sourdough rye bread (masa madre, de centeno). It was very good, with a sturdy crumb, not sweet, and a substantial crust with oats and flax seeds (no caraway; seems rare in Ecuador. SuperMaxi doesn't have it). Plus, my croissant and espresso cost $1.20. Can't beat that.

Proprietors José and Mario were great, enthusiastic, and they know what they're doing. Hurry down and get some bread.

Address: Calle Larga 2-48, between Tomas Ordoñez and Manuel Vega
