I hadn?t seen many places around the hostel for eating and didn?t want to go too far for an early dinner. In my guidebook I saw that Hotel Rodelu with the Restaurant and Cafeteria Rodelu was only a block away. The restaurant was closed when I visited, but the cafeteria was open.

I ordered a small pizza with chicken and a lemon juice. It all tasted good and I paid $3.40 (July 2011). I came back to have the same kind of pizza after a week of hiking in the Quilotoa area, and now I ordered a big one. It was too big for me, but I ate as much as I could. The big pizza with a papaya juice was $9.80.

Besides wood oven pizzas there are sandwiches, salads, , hamburgers, ice cream, different coffees and juices available at the cafeteria.
Update 2012: When visiting Latacunga in 2012 I stayed at Hotel Rosim, which is just next to Hotel Rodelu, and the cafeteria and restaurant (the exit is actually in the reception of Hotel Rodelu). So I ate breakfast at Rodelu every morning and because I got a terrible cold with temperature I also ate many of my meals here. Most times I ate in the restaurant and only once in the cafeteria.
This is what I ate in July 2012:
Breakfast (coffee, bread, butter, juice and eggs): $3.25 (without eggs it was $3.10)
Small chicken pizza: $2.80
Batido (fruit juice made with milk): $2.20
Pizza, asparagus soup, juice: $6.90
Vegetarian salad and batido: $6.70
Lunch menu (almuerzo): $3.20
Dinner (only set menu on Sunday evenings): $4.20
