Falafel veggie burger

Being vegetarian in Iquítos is not very easy unless you cook for yourself. Therefore I really appriciate the effort of Karma Cafe having vegetarian options and their Falafel burger is just awesome, such a big portion too... you have to starve all day in order to eat it.

I have very mixed feelings about this restaurant, but when all is said and done I just want the food to be better than it is. The atmosphere is great, kinda new-age eastern shanti vibe with nice tunes, visionary art, good library, comfy couches, great service. It's a wonderful place to meet good people or have an in-depth conversation, perhaps... More

With so many foreigners coming to visit this isolated Amazonian city to drink ayahuasca (google it,) Iquitos has a very high population of “conscious,” alternative gypsy travelers (myself included). Karma Cafe provides a classy, safe, and stimulating venue for this community to gather and meet. Their food is quite expensive for what you get, but you honestly pay for the... More

A place with great people sharing about painting, music, food and essentials oils all what you will find here with an happy peruvian team. Nice food, nice people, a place to get a rest before going to the market of Belen and getting a walk along the boulevar with the view to the rainforest and the Itaya river.

Iquitos can be a crazy place, fortunately there are is a place like karma cafe which works hard at lifting up the quality and energy... Joss the owner is awesome and it is easy to see that he puts his heart into making this venue what it is. The place is also a constant exhibition for amazing plant medicine inspired... More

I hvae come several times to this place since november 2014, everytime I am in there, I have met wonderful, interesting people. The menu is amazing, fresh local fruit juices, big salads, currys, sandwichs. Prices are resonable. Highly recommended if you are in Iquitos.

We ate here twice over the course of four days. It is a small, coy spot where you can have a drink or get some dinner. You can sit at the little bar, a table, or on a couch. The second night we were there they had live music and it was good. The food was good, atmosphere was cool,... More

The Karma Cafe is a great little place with a big diverse menu. I had a toasted tuna melt sandwich on ciabatta bread and I couldn't wait to come back for another. It is closed on Mondays but came back on Tuesday just so I could have another. The juices are made fresh and served in a big glasses. The... More

The place is warm and cozy, the owner nice, but his staff are poorly trained and the food is well below average. My friend was served her food first, than mine came about 30 minutes later. All said and done we were there for over 2 hours and each of us ate alone at the same table because she was... More

I quite love this place, it's in the relaxed style of a couple of comfy adjacent living rooms, with facing sofas and fluffy chairs, even bean bags. The menu is ample and the food is diverse, very international and mostly very good, everyone especially likes the hummus and unusual but excellent pita bread, probably particularly because they've never had anything...
