Canut Café (2 X 1 Canelazo) - Bar Quito - Ecuador

Better known as 2 x 1 Canelazo, thanks to the sign above the door, Canut Café doesn't actually have 2-for-1 drinks. What it does offer is a one-dollar glass of hot, sweet canelazo–an Ecuadorian favorite, made from aguardiente, sugar, and naranjilla or mora (blackberry) juice. A few other typical, cheap cocktails are listed on the dry-erase menu board, and the friendly older man who runs the bar is quick to serve another round. You'll hear everything from Latin music to Radiohead in this cozy shack, a great place to pile in with your friends on a chilly night. You can also get your canelazo to go, if you feel like brown bagging it. Monday-Saturday 4-12 p.m.


Café Canut is easy to miss; head to Calama, near Reina Victoria, and look for the faded teal shack next to Adam's Rib.
