Great place to eat

Jacks Café is located just on the outskirts of the main square and has a real feel good vibe about the place. We ate here and the staff even gave us some coca leaves to go with as we was struggling with the altitude.

We ate at Jack's a few times while in Cusco. Their coffees, juices and milkshakes are very good. We have also had a sandwich and we loved their Thai green curry... Try it!

I came here for both dinner and breakfast. For dinner I had the vegetarian burger and it was colossal. It was also very tasty. The milkshake was just average and needed to be thicker. The value for the money is great. I came here for breakfast as well and had fresh orange juice and the french toast. It was phenomenal.... More

We were in search of another recommended cafe, however due to the rain and our hunger we ventured into this establishment thinking it would be a decent place to dine (recommneded by lonely planet). Personally, the food wasn't great and overpriced. I am somewhat perplexed as to how this place was recommended by lonely planet. They do make a nice... More

Get there early if you don't want to wait in line. The coffee, however, is worth the wait. The food always very good. Its a "sure deal" which is hard to find in Cusco. We love to meet people here for breakfast because its delicious and you know that no one will leave disappointed.

Their food was amazing. First I ate their chicken soup since I was trying to acclimate and did not want to eat something too heavy. Their toast was so tasty. Later I ate dinner there and had the himalayan chicken, and my last visit there I ate a tuna melt. It was delicious and they even had live music while... More

Be early to get in here!!!! Great Food, service and atmosphere at Jack's Cafe. We were recommended by our friends daughter who had been there some years ago and it is still fantastic. Fair prices for the food.

Jacks Cafe is great although I don't know why there seems to always be a line out the door. The service was friendly and prompt and the food great. Their burger was not as thick as I prefer but everything else was great. Nothing extraordinary but great american food in Cusco.
