Came here a few times and we absolutely love it. i normally get the pancakes with butter and maple - delicious. The guys normally order the Gordo. Lot of food, big servings and probably the best coffee we've had so far in Peru. Would definetly recommend this little gem

Stopped there for breakfast and we weren’t disappointed. Nice to find an American style breakfast joint and everything on the menu we had was great. It’s a far cry from the typical hotel breakfast you get in Cusco. Had “El Gordo” and it was a great. Stop by early as its not a big place and you’ll avoid a wait.

Try the Gordo breakfast if you're really hungry. The staff is friendly and helpful. There is not a ton of space, so at night you may have to wait around for a bit, but it's worth it.

We ended up going twice, the food here is brilliant especially if you're missing a good breakfast and are sick of stale bread with jam that the hotels serve. Try the huervos rancheros - its big enough you wont need lunch! The pesto/tomato eggs were also amazing. And the fruit frappes (mango!) were delish! Definately recommended!

I was introduced to Jack's Cafe by a friend who frequently travels to Peru. The cafe is small and there always seems to be a line of people waiting for a table. The reason for this is the food is that good. The menu selection is small, however every item appears worthy of trying. I ate at the cafe on... More

I was in Cusco for a month and ate a bunch of times at Jack's. The food is tasty and familiar to my American palate (I think it's run by an Australian, but still....). Try the soups and the veggie burger!

Great service and delicious Western- style food. Fresh and fast with a lovely and busy environment. We would love to return. I recommend a juice of papaya, passionfruit and ginger! Not extremely cheap but well worth the money!
