Great food and price

Food was excellent and in massive portions could easily share an entree between two people. Prices are very reasonable and the staff were great.

A friend of mine arranged a weeks stay in a hostel during my time in Cusco. Jake's was a short walk away. Oh boy, what a great little place. Killer coffee and if you are not careful you will walk away with a few of the pastries as well. Yum!!! Visited in July 2011

Loved this place. The most eclectic group of people gather in this small restaurant. Be aware that the food is served in humongous sizes. I visited for breakfast and lunch. Every time I left half of the portions. Good food, coffee and service is super friendly.

Boring and unimaginative menu - basically exactly what you would find at home, in any Western country - and mass tourism clientele. The only Peruvians in the place are the staff. Stay away if you want to have an unrushed meal. This is a place where they want to turn around tables asap so that they can place the next... More

*Great place, not to far from the old town centre. *Reasonable prices. *More a place for that meal when your missing home. *Sometimes there is a wait to get in, so be prepared, this is not a negative just a good sign of what's to come once you get a table, you can normally order from the line so your...

Jack's is like that warm, cozy breakfast nook that everyone wants in their house. It's a community gathering place, a cozy spot to read a book, and an awesome restaurant, all in one! Let me start off by saying that Jack's makes possibly the BEST cappuccino in Peru. That, in itself, would be enough for me to love this place,... More

Best cafe ever. After being in South America for a few months I just craved a decent latte and a massive breakfast. Jack's more than delivered. Spectacular coffee, great service, cute cafe. The menu is something to behold- from pancakes to a full English, from nachos to vegetarian toasties; there is something for any mood. If this cafe was in... More

A group of five of us had an absolutely amazing breakfast at Jack's. Be sure to show up hungry, because the plates of food are huge! We each ordered a plate of food and then ordered a yogurt and pancake to share. We had no idea how much food was coming our way; so much that we had to pull... More

The food is amazing here! While it is a tab bit expensive it is delicious and worth it. I got a fresh lemonade which is ok I've had better. But their tuna melt is to die for!!!! I highly recommend it
