Description: Let's Go Bananas became famous with it's delicious all-day breakfast menu, offering not only classics like eggs & omelets, but also healthy alternatives, mediterranean-style plates, fresh fruit salads and of course their amazing crepes, either sweet or savory. By now, the juice bar offers also lunch options, sandwiches, coffee, herbal infusions and much more. The place is run by the Austrians Chris & Conny, who besides preparing their tasty dishes can help you out with travel information in & around Cusco, the cheapest ways to get to Machu Picchu and much more insider tips that you would never find at a travel agency.

“Lovely place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

After being in Cusco for about 10 weeks i finally found this place and is great after missing for so long being to a cafe where i can seat down and just enjoy the friendly atmosphere and talk to the people running it. Plus i gett o practice a bit of my german and spanish with all the international travelers you usually find here, and Chris and Conti have always great info of the places they have seen in Cusco and around. Did i mention the prices are pretty cheap? I might see you around there if you go any time before the end of March!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

lets go bananas offer a lovely range of fresh juices, crepes & sandwiches.

they also have combo options which include a choice of drink which is brill value for money.

i had hearty corn soup, a cheese & tomato toastie and a mint tea for 10 soles - loco!

there's a lovely vibe & the couple who run the place are chatty & helpful.

not to be missed.

“100% pure AWESOME!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

Recommended by a friend met on the road, "Lets Go Bananas" was our first stop following a 12 hour bus journey from Arequipa. Comfort of warm, tasty vegetarian food is nothing to be taken lightly after a long bus ride! I had the "mediterraneano" off their new lunch menu and the hummus was OFF THE CHARTS yummy! Returned the following morning for breakfast and enjoyed more tastiness. Much as gracias to Chris and Conny for the hospitality and warm food, great value for money this place does not disappoint!

“Welcoming!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to stay here by a couple we ran into in a hostel in Arequipa, told us to just come on by with out a reservation. As we arrived early
In the morning we found out that so far the hostel was full (at least a good sign of popularity) but they were to be more than happy to try accommodate us. They offered to keep our bags safe for the day and also offered to let us use their showers as well. We sat and had a delicious breakfast and used the wifi. The menu is healthy and reasonable and they serve breakfast all day! We came back the next day for lunch and here is where I right this review! We love Conny and Chris! Thank you both!
