Great little cafe

We ate lunch here twice . The food was fresh and service was great. It was just across the square from our hotel . They served fresh juice and the coffee was good.

The natural fruit juices (or smoothie) and sandwiches they offer are prepared fresh as you wait. We ordered the Tropicallismo smoothie and it was delicious! Just what we needed - a nourishment after a long day of exploring Cusco! The staff was also very pleasant and attentive to our requests.

Nothing too complicated here - sandwiches, salads etc. But they do a fine job overall with pleasant service. The bread especially is quite good, although a bit in the salty side. If you're looking for a light lunch, this is a good choice

Popped in here in mid-afternoon after hours of sightseeing and had a very pleasant lunch of quiche and coffee. The place was cozy and clean and our lunch was brought very quickly by the pleasant staff. Very reasonable prices and would definitely recommend for lunch.

We sampled the quiche, cheesecake and coffee - all freshly made and very tasty - and, on another visit, we tried their great pisco sours.The prices are most reasonable and the location, in the charming...

We went twice to the Mama Oli cafe during our stay. The food is really tasty and fresh, the beverages very good and the place is very cozy. The staff is very friendly and took some time to chat with us about Cuzco and their life in this city. We'll definitely recommend it!

We went for a coffee before visiting the museum and thought it was so good we returned for lunch. The coffee was piping hot, and the banana/chocolate cake was delicious.

We have been twice so far since we have been in Cusco. We cannot recommend it enough. Salads, sandwiches and juices are all made fresh and taste fantastic. If you want a light bite or more, this is the place for you! very close to MAP in the same square.
