Tintorera is a popular restaurant with a fresh, eco-friendly spin. Produce is organic and locally-grown; cheeses are made locally; jams are produced by the Orgnization of Artisan Women in Isabela; and re-usable glass soda bottles-not plastic throw-aways-are used. Ice cream, cakes, and bread products, including the bagels, are homemade and delectably moutwatering.
Breakfast is the best meal here, not only because of the fresh baked goods, but also because you get a bottomless cup of tea or organic Galapagos coffee. Lunches, however, are not far behind: sandwiches on homemade bread, bagel sandwiches, veggie burgers, salads, soups, and middle-eastern food provide delicious vegetarian options. Be sure to check out the executive lunch menu on the chalkboard if you're coming at lunchtime: it's a good deal.
