Vegetarian friendly menu. It is a great little cafe to have breakfast or lunch. It reminded me of little Melbourne cafés when I was homesick. So good we went back 4 times whilst in Cuzco.

Queued on basis of reviews and was not disappointed. Good selection of reasonably priced lunch meals. Good Service and good sized portions. Only slight negative cash only for payment.

One of my top favorites in Cusco for breakfast, lunch or dinner. All the food is great but the brownie is a must-taste, BEST BROWNIE EVER!

This restaurant will become an institution in Cusco...It took us a little while to visit, but once we did we couldn't bring ourselves to eat anywhere else. We kicked off with a fantastic breakfast, which kept us going all day. After the altitude had destroyed my appetite I couldn't face much at all...so the fresh squeezed mango juice was the... More

Went for a late lunch. We picked Jacks because it looked busy. Great service. Big delicious meals. Best expresso in Cuzco so far.

Fast service, large meals, amazing caramel sauce on the pancakes, very comforting after the inca trail! Also, the original inca trail to macchu Picchu started here!

After many recommendations, we visited Jack's Cafe one day for lunch while in Cusco. We had to queue for about 10 minutes to get a table, which wasn't too bad. I had the tuna melt with chips and salad and my boyfriend had the burger and chips. Both meals were amazing and filled us up all day! I can highly... More

My wife and I liked this place so much we ate here twice. That's saying something because I almost never do that when on vacation. I had these fantastic banana pancakes for breakfast the first time. The 2nd time we went for dinner and their dinner items were equally fantastic. Wait staff were quick and efficient. Prices very reasonable.

Although in an unassuming and camoflaged as another simple local restaraunt/cafe - it offers more "modern" fare. Fresh food, excellent breakfast options, good coffee, nice staff. After 3 weeks in Peru it was nice to have a great meal that was a bit less traditional.
