If you are dying after a night out this is the cure the all day breakfast is unreal, get it with a nice juice and you will be ready to go again. The steak sandwich also comes highly recommended.

We had to wait outside to be seated as the place was packed. The service was very fast once we got seated. This place makes great coffee and the gordo breakfast was huge. Definitely worth a try if your in Cusco

Fast service for having to wait in queue outside for a table! Food was excellent and proportions quite large. Definitely worth a try.

We stopped in here for lunch at the recommendation of our tour guide. He ended up eating at the table next to us, so we really knew that the food was good. I ordered the chicken sandwich and fries. It came with avocado, cheese, and mushrooms. It was basically 1.5 sandwiches, so A LOT of food. The sandwich was freaking... More

I ordered the breakfast, which was certainly tasty, but some of the items were reheated as they we just about warm. Good atmosphere and nice staff. There is always a queue outside which is handled well by the staff. If you have a hangover then a brekkie here might be the cure.

This was a good place to go when you need a break from Peruvian food. Good coffee and tons of choices, breakfast and lunch/dinner, and large portions for reasonable prices. We went mid afternoon and there was no wait for a table. Meal for 2 ranges from 25-50 soles depending on orders.

So, we read in lonely planet that this restaurant is so busy that people queue outside to get a table. It's true! But 20 minutes later we were in and ordering a huge breakfast with huge coffee and freshly squeezed juice. The portions are large so go hungry, but definitely go there!!! A must visit venue in cusco.

If you have been on the road awhile and you are missing modern day flavors, take a pause here. We went her for a breakfast (great coffee), lunch and then dinner 2 days later. Service was excellent and staff friendly. Good food, a bit expensive but the quantity was more than enough. Try the Postales Malbec wine.

I had a mixed vanilla and chocolate milkshake and it was good. Made with real ice cream. Costs 8 soles I think.
