Very friendly staff, great coffee and food. If it is busy order a 'cafe para llevar' and walk up to the square in San Blas to drink it. Visited this cafe many times while living in Cusco for 2 months.

Excellent value and quality. Very popular, you may need to wait for a while but it is worth it. The menu offers a good range of delicious fresh food and the price is very reasonable. Decor and atmosphere is relaxed and pleasant; service fast and friendly. What more do you want?

Thank you fellow travellers for the good reviews about this place, it is a gem. Four of us went there every morning whilst in beautiful Cusco based on the reviews, and we were never disappointed. Quality food, large serves, friendly staff & quick service but in a relaxed atmosphere, no pressure to leave once eaten. Great location to walk too.... More

Massive portions and spot on menu when you want some food from home! We ate here twice and everything we ordered was delicious and was served with a smile. Great veggie options too.

Okay so you could basically be having brunch in the West Village or in Shoreditch given the clientele and the food but if you have been travelling for a while like us the cracking coffee and really, really good food (breakfast and sandwiches in particular) really hit the spot. Loved the collection of magazines as well. No wi-if but doesn't... More

The pricing is good, but you can only pay in cash. The food comes in good quantity, but the dish I bought was lacking of salt -the quantity was very good, though. And the personnel is very polite.

This is definitely a gringo hangout but they do have great food. The huevos rancheros are great, coming with a bean spread, and cilantro. It's a huge meal that will leave you satisfied. It's a little pricier than most places - approximately 20 - 25 soles if you order a drink as well - and the juices are great! Definitely... More

Jack's is a great place. Always busy and friendly and good. Somehow amidst the mayhem there is still space to relax and hide away or cosmically meet up with people you just met or haven't seen in years, eat mango pancakes and drink a mocha or cappuccino, buy crystals while waiting for a table, read magazines or write unsociably in...

I visited Jack's twice while in Cusco and loved it. On my first visit I had scrambled eggs with smoked trout. Healthy portions and everything was cooked perfectly. It was great comfort food. The latte was perfect, too. On a separate note, there is a rack of English-language magazines so you can sit back, sip your latte and read about... More

My sister and I were in Cusco for 5 days and ate here 3 times. It was close and convenient to our hotel, but the food was out of the this world. Vege breakfast was incredible and huge! Best BLT I've ever had, with homemade mayo. Another more Peruvian dish was chicken in a mushroom sauce. Awesome. Small, and had... More
