Excellent

We found this place on the way to San Blas. Lemon pie was yummy. Quinoa salad light and refreshing. They wash their greens in mineral water to avoid anyone getting gastrointestinal issues. Thank you!

Just had lunch at mama oli's. A simple menu, but large servings and reasonably priced (approx $10 aus an omelette and salad). The fruit juices were big and great tasting. Only one issue, be patient, one woman doing all the cooking and running around helped a little by her daughter(?). We'll go again.

Sandwiches, quiche, and desserts pretty much covers the menu. But....oh, my....what exquisite sandwiches, quiche, and desserts! Stumbled upon Cafe de Mama Oli on our walk down to the town of Cuszco from Saqsaywamam, along Calle Palacio. The menu is simple, but the ingredients are creatively combined (pork and pineapple) and deliciously fresh. The whole grain bread used for the sandwiches... More

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.
