El Macario Café, a spectacular place to taste quality coffee, have a drink or have a few more with friends. El Macario Café is part of AlterNative Hostel, so here you can meet people from different parts of the world and enjoy a new experience.

The idea to open El Macario was born of our taste for coffee and, we recognize it, we are a beverage enthusiasts. We would like you to try the best artisan coffees in the area and the world, along with a menu of light snacks and delicious fruit juices.


  • We specialize in quality coffee. Come to El Macario Café and taste one of the best coffee in the city of Cuenca - Ecuador.

  • We have salads, sandwiches and snacks. We carefully select our menu and products. In addition, we take into account the journey of food: from coffee beans to drinks; from fruits to tea or rich desserts.

  • Our kitchen is designed for all audiences. We have vegetarian and vegan menus. 

  • Do not worry if you have a pet. They are also very welcome.

  • We have a variety of drinks. We offer national and artisan beer, wine and spirits.

Let yourself be seduced by this new initiative of AlterNative Hostel and by the passion of Xavier and Kris.
