Panesa is a nice bakery (with cafe) here in Cuenca. We like to stop by for a coffee break or a quick meal.
We recently went there for breakfast and it cost under $16 for the three of us. That included a bag of fresh buns and a few cookies for the road. The servings were not big, but with the fresh juice and bread it was enough.
We have enjoyed stopping into Panesa almost since we arrived in Cuenca. Once we found it we just keep going back.
When we first started going it was just a bakery, but they have expanded and now we enjoy dropping in for breakfast or dessert. Sometimes we still just drop by to get some treats to go.
I like the tables by the windows because they are really good for people watching. The tables in the back are also good because sometimes the doors are open and it can feel chilly sitting out front.
The menu is in English and the prices are reasonable.
I love this picture they have up, it’s so sweet. It says “wherever you go, Cuenca goes with you.”
