The Magic Bean feels like a quaint small-town café. It's located on the ground floor and patio of the hostel of the same name, and it serves as a home away from home for many expats and travelers in Quito. Breakfast is the meal of the day here, with a full menu of American comfort foods that rarely miss their target, like humongous pancakes, French toast, bagels, omelets, and fresh fruit juices. You'll likely see more than one person hanging around with their laptop or iPad, drinking coffee and  making use of the free Wi-Fi. Lunch and dinner menus include dishes like grilled trout and kabobs.
