This little place is a hostel/ restaurant however, I can only rate the restaurant. They only did breakfast when we went but that was more than ok with my boyfriend and I. We got banana crepes ( 3 crepes and a banana shake) and avocado sandwich. The menu items come with your choice of orange juice or tea, I messed... More

Well.. I booked five nights here and on the second night my entire backpack was stolen. I was extreamly concerned beforehand as for the entire 8 bed dorm we were only given one key and there is zero security. Anybody can wonder in off the street through a permenently open enterence which is clearly mapped on the main front door,... More

It's easy to get lost in the many torist traps littered around Cusco but I'm glad I chanced upon this gem. This cosy cafe offers delicious and healthy meals at an affordable price. With great music, friendly staff and pretty decent wifi, it's an easy place to hang out for hours on end.

I've stopped in a few times now, both alone and with my husband, and the staff have always made me feel right at home. Love the fresh eggs, big mugs of coffee, and smiling staff. Wifi is a rare treat here in Cusco, too. DH and I will definitely be back.

I stumbled upon Let´s Go Bananas by pure occasion, mostly because the menu has a breakfast for 6 Soles (every other restaurant in the area - for 10). The atmosphere is quite nice, there´s wifi, but my favorites are the lunch combos. For 10 Soles you can get a very tasty veggie soup and a sandwich, which will totally fill... More

Sat in Let's Go Bananas trying to shelter from the hailstones and decided to eat. I had eggs and bread then crepes to follow. The place is great, so laid back and the staff so friendly. I will, if I get back to Peru, definitely visit again. One of the nicest backpacking places I have ever been. You must try... More

If you're constantly on the road (as you often tend to be as a backpacker), it's really nice with those once-in-a-while encounters of places that really makes you feel at home. Sometimes there can be a while between them, but not if you head to the Let's Go Bananas. I had a absolutely fantastic time - eating crepes and meeting... More
