Looking for the perfect Quito Bed and Breakfast? Tambocajas GuestHouse is a home where you will find the gracious atmosphere with the comforts and amenities today’s travelers need, all ideally situated.




Breakfasts can be small and quick, for example some bread with cheese or dulce (jam) and coffee. We have an amazing variety of fresh fruit and its very common to have fresh juices or fruit salads, and other times are simply served on the side.



Ecuadorians are well-known for taking lesser cuts of meat and making them delicious which is a great score for budget travelers, especially when served with the chimichurri sauce and Ecuadorian aji.

Bolon de verde is one of the dishes we featured in Tambocajas, there it is usually eating late afternoon with a cup of coffee. You can choose the cheese only version, or our favorite – a bolon de verde with cheese AND pork.

Even if you’re not staying at Tambocajas you may want to pop by for an afternoon coffee, or as we like to call it, “cafecito” usually falls between 5 to 6 p.m. During “cafecito” time we serve coffee with our typical “bolon de verde”.

Wood Fired Pizza

Wood Fired Pizza

is faithfully crafted the way authentic pizza was originally made; in a blisteringly hot wood fired oven for about 90 seconds, natural leavened dough, with a long room temperature fermentation to bring out the full flavor and aroma of the crust.

Beer & Spirits

Beer & Spirits

The usual suspects of brown colored liquor, whiskey, bourbon and scotch, can generally be found. Nothing exotic required or available. Simple drinks…for simple folks. The local Ecuadorian beer, Pilsener, everyone drinks it. It’s just what you do!
