With my last meal and S/30 left, there was no question I would spend my last meal dining at Jack's. They have a great selection, prepared by an Australian chef, and the hospitality is great. Their portions are great, and even though you may be full by the time dessert rolls around, their brownies are amazing. With an almond atop... More

I stopped in here my family while staying in the area. We were having a light lunch and I had the bruschetta and a mocha shake, both were very good. The rest of the menu looked great too, I definitely want to come back and try a quesadilla!

I've had a lot of fantastic food in Cusco, but Jack's Cafe is definitely one of the best. It was my second favorite, second-most frequented during my two-month stay in the city (first was Green Point...you MUST go). You can't really go wrong with anything on their menu, however if you ask me, the spicy chicken/tofu curry is their best.... More

Great place for breakfast (all day). Gourmet menu. Service was excellent. There are not many seats during peak hour in the morning so be sure to get there early. Very well priced. If your hotel serves shabby food, go to jacks cafe!

Amazing North American food if you're really craving it. After being in the jungle for 4 months there was nothing I was craving more than some bacon and chicken and Jack's Cafe was amazing, highly recommend it.

We had large western breakfasts here with great coffee. Portions were large and food was very good. Each time we walk past there is a line out front, so best to come early..

My boyfriend and I ate there several times during our visit in Cusco, and I must say that they serves the best breakfast in town! We ordered probably every dish on the menu and you always get a h-u-g-e portion which is delicious as well. I highly recommend the mushrooms and the pancakes, but in this place- you can't go... More
