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 came across this cafe on our first day in Cusco and were delighted with its welcoming and spotless interior, friendly staff and great food. 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!

A small but lovely café on the peaceful Plazoleta Nazarenas very close to the Pre Columbian art museum. 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. Does great quiches, salads and sandwiches for lunch and has great freshly... More

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.

I would highly recommend this cafe in Cusco, Peru due to the friendliness of the owner and also the freshness of the food. Unfortunately I could not taste their desserts since they were finished which means that there were a lot of people coming to taste them. The teas we had were nice and the owner has lived in France... More

Wonderful meal. All ingredients freshly prepared and quantity excellent too. Value for money is 10 out of 10. And the equipment used was spotless.

Best coffee during our 20 days in Peru, it was hot hot hot!!! Great homemade lemon pie too... it was so good that we returned a few days later. Great place to chill away from the hectic Plaza de Armas.

This is one of my favorite lunch places in Cusco as they make great quiches (broccoli, spinach, aubergine), which with a salade is for me an ideal healthy lunch. I do love Peruvian food, but it can be a bit too much carbohydrates at times, especially for lunch when you have things to do in the afternoon. The juices are... More
