Great value vegetarian café style establishment, frequented by both locals and tourists. Ideal for a quick lunch stop. Decent menu, efficient service and our food was great. Would certainly go again if in Cusco.

Perfect meal for vegetarians on a budget! We spent $15 for everything pictured. Would highly recommend the vegetable soup- the produce was so fresh and especially nice after a day at the sacred valley :)

Service is great. It’s a small nice restaurant specifically for vegetarians. Towards the end of the menu, they have about 4 real meat options for your carnivore spouse. Near the plaza. The coffee is instant but it’s nescafe so it’s all good
