Delivery: real sourdough, bagels, and authentic Southern biscuits

Hi, Sunday Brunch Cuenca family.

New product alert:
Homemade Southern Biscuit Mix, 2 lbs. for $10

You can make biscuits yourself whenever you need. Just add milk. You can also use as a topping for casseroles, cobblers, and more. Keep in the freezer and just take out what you need.

We now also have ravioli. Our 3-cheese ravioli comes frozen in a pack of 32 for $10. The pasta is homemade. Take out however many you need, boil, and then toss in your own sauce of choice. We recommend 8 per person. So delicious. You can’t beat homemade pasta. We’ve been eating them ourselves with slices of our sourdough.

sreat price on 2200 sq. ft. Yunguilla home with 1400 sq. ft of terrace

This 2,200 sq. ft Yunguilla Sanctuary Has 400 sq. feet of terraces, never-ending views, and a hot tub to soothe your soul.

Situated on nearly an acre of land and at an elevation of 3,500 feet, this 2,200 sq ft Yunguilla sanctuary on a hill exudes charm and calm, with ever-changing panoramic vistas from all directions.

Located five minutes from the quaint town of Santa Isabel in Yunguilla, this private and peaceful 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is also only 5 minutes to the Autopista and about an hour and a half to Cuenca. And, thanks to its lower elevation, Yunguilla has a much warmer climate than the colonial city and tons of sunshine year-round.

The home is a gardener’s paradise where every type of fruit and vegetable imaginable can grow. Already on the property, there are avocado, orange and lemon trees, and a vegetable garden. Picturesque stone walking paths allow for easy walking through the terraced land. On the lower level, there is room for additional orchards, gardens or a casita, mother-in-law apartment, studio, or workshop. There is also a gorgeous hot tub with a fieldstone rock surround.

The single-story home — designed by the owner to North American standards — has an open concept plan with the living room, dining area and kitchen flowing seamlessly together. There are also 400 square feet of terraces that can be accessed from the living room and all three bedrooms with spectacular panoramic views of the mountains and valley below.

The house is angled so that the sun never directly floods the home, there are irrigation ditches surrounding the property to keep away rain and water, and little extras like screens on all of the windows illustrate the great attention to detail the owner put into the property. This light, bright home was also built with cross ventilation in mind so there’s always a nice breeze, even on the hottest days.

The large kitchen includes a spacious island, perfect for entertaining and cooking for a crowd. The kitchen comes with a refrigerator, stove, oven, range hood, and a washer and dryer that is housed in a separate laundry room with a washing sink. There is also a hook-up and space for a dishwasher should the new owner want to add one.

Down a long and lovely hallway, you’ll find the master suite, with a walk-in closet, a large master bathroom with double sinks, and a bathtub surrounded by windows so you can soak in the natural beauty around you — literally!

At the other end of the hallway are the two additional bedrooms and the second bath, which also serves as the social, guest bath. One bedroom is currently being used as an office. All three bedrooms have spectacular views and their own private sliding doors leading out to the patios.

There is a front and side lawn, a garden area, and manicured flowers and bushes surrounding the property and there is also a lovely iron gate at the entrance to the parking area.

The property gets its water from the city and there is a separate source for irrigation.

High-speed Internet and Direct TV are both available. Utilities are about $30 per month and property taxes are approximately $82 annually.

This very special house comes with all the appliances. Select furnishings may be negotiated. The asking price is $195,000.

Semi furnished. Negotiable. Pets are allowed.

Gold and silver coins

I have a variety of coins to sell. Everywhere from Indian Head pennies, 3 Krugerrands, 3 $10 gold pieces and a number of other gold pieces. Also some solid silver antique Bedouin jewelry and a bunch of silver coins. I also have some ancient Roman coins and 2 Atlas of Rhodes coins that are over 2 thousand years old. The numismatic coins I am willing to take a beating on them if they go to a true collector that can own and enjoy them. I realized the other day I hadn’t had any of this stuff out for over 2 years. The silver and gold coins we can do at spot or something close. I’m very much a win/win person and don’t need to sell any of this. If you are a pushy person wheeler and dealer type save your and my time because I won’t work well with you. However, if you are sincerely interested especially in the rare coins contact me.

Recommendation for Red Tag Moving Company, local moving company

We found ourselves needing to move quickly from our home from Capulispamba to Cuenca and called Debra Lynn at Red Tag Moving Company. Debra fit us into her already busy schedule, met with us and gave us a what turned out to be a spot-on quote for the amount of time it would take her and her crew to pack and move us. 11 hours to load, unload and transport 6 truckloads and 6 hours to pack our 3 bed, 2 bath home.

We did not lift a finger during the entire move and she and her crew worked tirelessly and with much cheer during the very long day. They expertly loaded the contents of our home with precision and the utmost care; fitting it all into their truck like a jigsaw puzzle. Debra had come out the day before and packed every single thing in our house with extreme efficiency and expediency having it all in place for her movers the next day.

The crew disassembled all of our appliances and beds and reassembled them at our new home. After the – again – long day, Debra made sure everything was connected correctly ensuring that we had hot water for our showers that night and she even unpacked everything we needed in the morning to have coffee and toast. With gratitude and praise we wholeheartedly recommend Debra and her crew.

Recommendation for KOLO restaurant and bakery

It’s Frank’s own place! And it keeps getting better and better. Located in the Hotel La Vieja Mansion, in a spacious and lovely dining room, Frank’s specializes in delicious American style food (Bravo to the Chef!) and good old Southern hospitality.

All staff speak English and are friendly and helpful. The menus are in English and Spanish, easy to read. Frank adjusts his menus frequently to include new and popular items, one of which is the Texas- style chicken fried steak. It comes with mashed potatoes and veggies, but you can have double mashed potatoes if you ask. Take it from a Texan, the chicken fried steak is a 10.

Pitchers of water with mint leaves lend another touch of class to the experience, and you just feel at home at Frank’s. Daily specials and the regular menu feature very reasonable prices. So get over there and try it out. Don’t forget to leave room for a cinnamon roll or take one home. The sourdough bread is perfect to buy for a late-night snack. Frank knows how it’s done.

Closed on Tuesdays. Open from 8 AM to 3 PM every day except Tuesdays. Enjoy.

Coming soon to La Mia Mascota Vet and Pet Shops (and currently available in the Veterinary offices) is Canada cat litter. It’s from Canada. It’s formulated to avoid those awful problems just mentioned. What a great product to get for your feline friends and for your own ease and comfort.

Canada Cat Litter is a product that clumps so rapidly that it doesn’t stick to the borders or bottom of the cat box. It lasts a long time, because it is 100% clumping and has an absorption of 350%. The grains of the cat litter are irregular so that it can absorb liquids more quickly than other similar products. Therefore, it uses less litter and is more economical. It is made of pure sodium bentonite and effectively controls odors. Available in 3 sizes: 6,12, and 18 Kg bags. Ask for it today – we can deliver.

We offer the best in food and toys as well as medicines and veterinary care.

We would like to remind you that we now have 2 full service veterinary offices – one in Cuenca and another in Challuabamba – in addition to our pet store locations noted below. Call any of the numbers below to make appointments for your pet.

Main office Vet: Arrayan y Alamos; Location 1:CC Plaza Las Americas local #27; Location 2: El Vergel Centro Comercial ground floor – first shop from the entrance; Location 3 El Batan shopping in front of Multicines; and Location 4: CC Plaza Sur Shopping #4 Challuabamba

Recommendation for Nandala Cocina Vegetariana, restaurant

The newly opened Nandala Cocina Vegetariana is a delight start to finish. The cheery decor, staff and fireplace were a welcomed relief on a gloomy rainy Cuenca day. The noodles and vegetables in the Pad Thai were cooked to perfection, with slightly crisp vegetables and a wonderful mingling of flavors. Spicey sauce comes on the side. My friend had a huge bowl of Ramen which she struggled to finished. On my next trip I’m going to try the Burrito. We were offered a complimentary side dish of perfectly cooked twice fried French fries with dipping sauces. I was full but I couldn’t resist. Nandala is definitely a welcomed addition to the culinary arts in Cuenca.

Recommendation for La Chakra – Matias, organic food/specialty store

I am new to the area and Matias was the first person that I met here in Cuenca. He manages a wonderful store full of the finest organic products including nuts, flours, honey, shampoos and it’s no wonder they have a five-star rating.

Matias runs the store for his cousin and he is the most wonderful person to help you with your needs. Very kind and patient, his English is excellent and I made a new friend here.

The store also carries CBD oil and other products to help you with your personal care.

Recommendation for Elizabeth Gavilanes and Mateo Nauta, house/pet sitting

Elizabeth and Mateo are veterinary students in Cuenca. They took care of our house and 2 cats while we were in the US for 3 weeks. We came home to happy cats and a spotless house. They are very professional and have a contract that allows both parties to exchange information about the job/pets/special needs and contains all of their contact information. Elizabeth sent us photos and videos of the cats, which added to our level of comfort while we were away. We highly recommend them – also known as
M & E Pet Sitting Service.

Address: The service took place at our house in El Vergel.

Recommendation for Protemax, glass lamination

I wanted clear window film to prevent my furniture, rugs, etc. from fading. A friend recommended Protemax, which promptly sent a proposal with information about the product and cost. A few days later, three young people installed the 3M film quickly and correctly at the quoted price, which was much lower than I expected. I’m very pleased with the professional way Protemax handled the job. The glass is clear and stronger than before, thanks to the 8- micron thickness I selected. See

Recommendation for Leonardo the TechGuy

My employee’s son starts university and needed a real computer (the family has very little money and the two teenagers have been using their parents’ cellphones as computers for school). A friend donated a computer that needed some repair work. I contacted Leonardo–he got back to me immediately and came over to look at the computer. He diagnosed the problem, took the computer and told me the cost. I paid him up-front and, since I’d told him it was a rush, he brought the repaired computer back the next day! (He said he’d worked on it all night, since the computer was needed right away.)

On time, competent, very reasonably priced, prompt with repairs and advice–what more could one want? I recommend Leonard highly.
