“Great home cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

The home made soups were delicious and the milkshakes were amazing. We also had an excellent chocolate peanut butter cake and the biggest burger we had seen. All the staff are volunteers and the profits go towards a couple of charitable projects that have been set up to help single mothers. It is also a great place to hang out and meet other travelers.

“Good waffles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

We sought out this restaurant after reading about it in the lonely planet.
We were disappointed by the coffee, it was a watery coffee essence. The breakfasts are big and the waffles are worth a try, reasonably priced compared to the other restaurants in cusco.

“A Gem of a Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

We happened upon this cozy cafe in the San Blas area. Enjoyed wonderful waffles. Bagette sandwiches with fresh ingredients, made to order. Best of all, this is a non-profit place which uses the money made to support local low income families. We met a gal working there who coordinates an after-school program with a focus on empowering young girls/women.
So eat, enjoy and encourage others in the process!

“A Great Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

The food was delicious and their pastries were moist, but what puts this place at Excellent is that along with their good food they give 100% of their profits to support programs (ie. after school educational programs and other local community programs) to help the development of lower income families in Peru.
The owners of the restaurant are wonderful caring people.

“Amazing waffles”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

The breakfast waffles here are amazing - huge and fluffy. The service is friendly and the courtyard seating is a relaxed place you can sit for hours. We also tried their other breakfast but this wasn't nearly as good as the waffles. Would highly recommend.
