If you don't eat meat, you'll enjoy Good Affinity Vegetarian Restaurant. The food here is so inexpensive that the place is filled with Cuencanos all afternoon.
Loosely based on Chinese food, the menu offers an excellent meal of the day, usually consisting of soup and a large plate of food.
Or you can order from the menu of tempting vegetarian dishes.
The decor of Good Affinity is nothing to be thrilled about.
Tables for four and comfortable tables line the window side of the front room, with a few more past the front counter on the left.
The back room is filled with the same tables and chairs.
The building receives lots of light, something that many Cuenca restaurants lack.
Outside you'll find several plastic patio sets (table, umbrella, chairs) where you can eat if you want.
The view of the traffic on Gran Colombia (almost nothing with the nearby road construction) is screened by tall bamboo plants.
There's also a beautifully designed waterfall and pond near the front entrance.
As we mentioned earlier, Good Affinity's prices are cheap enough that Cuencanos fill the place all afternoon.
We've eaten there a few times, and we're hard-pressed to spend more than $5.00 for the two of us, with a water or juice. The last time, we had the menu of the day for $2.30 each, which included soup, main course, and a drink.
We splurged and split a fruit salad for another $1.50, which took the total bill to $6.10, which included the IVA tax.
There's no service charge added, so tip if you feel inclined and the service was good (it usually is).
Good Affinity Vegetarian Restaurant is located on Capulies, at the corner of Gran Colombia. Capulies is one block east of the construction at Av. de las Américas and Gran Colombia.
Hours are from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. (lunch only) Monday to Saturday.
Cash is the only payment method they accept.

I just want to thank you both soooo much for creating this web site. I am originally from Cuenca but moved to New York 11 years ago and have not being back since. My husband and I are planning on visiting Cuenca over the Summer and this web site has helped me a lot.
When I came to the US we still had the "sucre," the bus ride cost 1,000 sucres and a pack of trident gum would cost 3,000 sucres. I am very nervous to go back, but thanks to your web site I now know what to expect.
My husband is American and Captivating Cuenca has taught him a lot about what my great city has to offer, things that I had forgotten about myself! :)
Thank You both so much! I cannot wait to visit Cuenca!!
