Cozy coffee. Delicious banana cake and fresh fruit juice. El Caafe is a nice break in the middle of a sunny day. Perfect to recharge your batteries.

I didn't expect about the food quality from outside, but the smoothie and hot sandwich that I've taken was so great. Thus I am writing this review for the first time in tripadvisor.

We LOVED this place and went there for lunch every day we were in Cusco. They make really delicious sandwiches from crunchy bread rolls - I had the vegetarian one with avocado and my husband had one with fried egg I think - anyhow everything we ate was absolutely fantastic, freshly made and YUM. They make a wide selection of... More

Warmly greeted in by someone who seemed like the owner. Guacamole was delicious and special tea blends a must try. Location is nice in front of a quiet courtyard about 2 short blocks from the plaza.

We stumbled upon this place for lunch. There sandwiches were delicious and their deserts are amazing. The cafe was quiet when we entered, and has quite a pleasant atmosphere and friendly service.

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
