Quick, delicious, and versatile

Really enjoyed our lunch here. The menu has an extensive amount of crepes, but lots of other options too. I had the waffles with chocolate sauce which was delicious and only 10 soles. The service was lightening fast compared to the rest of South America. We were sorry to be leaving the next day so... read more

This nook is a nice find. Upstairs there is casual-style seating. They menu, while not expansive, has a nice variety of crepes and sandwiches. I like their sandwiches and their crepes, while not large, never disappoint in flavor. It's a nice place to grab lunch or a drink with a friend and usually has space when other tourist joints are...

We had a great brunch in this highly rated cafe. They have a great range of crepes from savoury one with alpaca steak and sauce, to sweet ones with banana, chocolate, ect. We stayed in the lounging area up the stairs which is a great place to just chill out, however the unfortunate thing is it is you have to... More

Wherever we travel we always like to find somewhere who will make us a banana and chocolate crepe. Some of the best ones we have eaten have been in India. We asked for one here and it was very good. They have an enormous selection of crepes, in fact a whole menus worth of them. We sat outside in a... More

I had breakfast here after an overnight bus trip to Arequipa. I was feeling like I needed some vitamins so ordered their fruit salad. It was really good, just what I needed. Their coffee is the best I've had in peru so far and the service was excellent. I was still hungry so ordered an almond crepe - also brilliant.... More

This was our go-to restaurant during our visit in Arequipa. Cozy atmosphere. Great cappuccinos. We tried several kinds of crepes (they have hundreds) as well as sandwiches and breakfast. We just kept ending up back here for the good food and reasonable prices. Don't miss the view of Santa Catalina from the roof, volcano in the background.

Crepes are very good. So good we came back twice. Close to Plaza and hotels. They give you the opportunity to try to make your crepe yourself - it's harder than it looks. Decent selection of craft beer, mostly imported.
