Excellent coffee and baked goods, right on the main plaza. Good choice after climbing the ruins or exploring the village.

I nearly gave up drinking coffee in Peru. There is no doubt that Peru knows how to grow great coffee but roasting and brewing it seems to be one this countries greatest weak spots (in my opinion), until you come to this place. In La Esquina, you do not just receive a great coffee for Peruvian standards but this place... More

Great food. I especially like that they serve breakfast all day. Very comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. A must place if you're in Ollantaytambo.

Nice place to sit outside in the main square and have a cup of coca tea. Seemed to be busy all the time. Good baked goods.

We came here based on reviews and were not disappointed. We would have gone back another time but it was closed. The sandwiches were tasty and while the desserts looked good, we didn't try them. I would definitely recommend !

With such a healthy menu, we would expect the food to be excellent. It was ok, but not excellent. The owner was very nice and attentive.

We ate here due to the good recommendations and as it's very hard to find good food in this village. The sandwiches and fresh lemonade were tasty, no doubt at all. It's definately worth the eat there. Well, on the other side, it seems that the cafe needs more staff. There was one waiter who had to manage everything. That's... More

In an attempt to find WiFi (which, for someone who is used to having WiFi and has been in the area for a bit, understands the difficulty with finding dependable WiFi), I ventured here. I heard great things about the quality of food, and had had a coffee here once before, and expected no problems. However, in checking to see... More

My partner and I stopped into this cheerful cafe for lunch one afternoon. I had a mixed salad bowl which I really enjoyed, but his quinoa soup was a bit too salty (common in Peru). The service was a bit slow and not super friendly, but the only waiter was stretched a bit thin. A good choice in Ollanta, but... More

Best place to have lunch before boarding an afternoon train to Aguas Caliente! They have awesome sandwiches on home made bread...and a bakery too! A must in Ollantaytambo!
