A great place for a quick drop in for tea or coffee, with a wide range of snacks and cakes, and good coffee. Being in San Blas, this is not what you would call a 'locals' place, but it is fine if you want a bit of 'western' or European comfort. The ethos to the cafe is commendable, providing a... More

The sign outside this cafe draws you in! It says (this isn't the entire sign) "Huge waffles. Thick milkshakes. Juicy burgers." How could you not walk in? When I went there I had a grasshopper milkshake and a plain waffle. They were as described! The service was average. I like their menu but it isn't extremely diverse. It guess that... More

Great spot overall and some cool people doing good things. The food and drinks were great. Also check out motomissionperu for a unique adventure. Cheers Scott.

Just came back from this small cafe near Iglesias San Blas. Cute place. I really appreciated the menu had vegetarian items but also a local flair. The waiters are all really friendly and mostly young, western people volunteering or teaching English. My favorite part of this cafe and what made it worth the altitude sickness-inducing climb up the street: profits... More

Probably one of the best cafe in Cuzco at San Blas Plaza. Very friendly staff and amazing food, snacks, juices and burgers!!! Unfortunately it closes early in the afternoon, so you have to visit it before 4 o'clock. They also have library where you can read whatever book you want, as long as you put it back exactly at the... More

I've been coming here for years. It is located in an area known for its artists. The staff wants to be there - many of them are volunteers who are extremely friendly. The food looks good, tastes good and makes you feel good about your selection. I love all the breakfast dishes and the coffee is by far the best... More

This place should be number 1! My boyfriend and I have been here twice in the last two days. If you are craving some western food such as burgers or waffles this is the spot. Massive portions and about a quarter of the price of any other western joint in Cusco and ALL proceeds go back to the community, all... More

A really different cafe and one which takes coffee very seriously! Staff are very friendly and helpful and their work for local projects is commendable. The food and drink is luxurious, tasty and indulgent. Better for snacks and treats rather than meals.

We stopped by The Meeting Place on our last day in the city. I am so disappointed that we didn't go earlier in our trip or else I would have stopped by every day we were in Cusco. There is a cool coffee shop vibe with free wifi and a little library of books. The volunteers are so sweet. All... More
