This is a typical restaurant you would expect to find in Cusco and is within walking distance from Plaza de Armas. The food is good, but the decoration not so new, to say the least. It is good to dine on a budget.

We had coffee and cappuccino. It was perhaps the best coffee that we have had in Peru so far. We didn't have any food, but I'd recommend this place for a caffeine fix.

Great pancakes, great hot chocolate. Go upstairs to rest a bit and to silently enjoy your meal while watching the trouble outside.

Great place to have a hot chocolate and some snacks, especially pancakes! If I ever come back, I will go there again.

We went here for breakfast because it has such good reviews, but it was horrible. My cappuccino was way too sweet and my breakfast sandwich was bland - no flavor. The quality of the food was not good. My boyfriend had an omelet, and he had to ask for all the condiments to give it just the smallest bit of... More

This little shop is in competition with big bad Starbucks, so show some love! The beans are local from Cusco, and it is an amazing cup of coffee. It is located very centrally as well. Unfortunately, there is no wifi, and it closes early. So use Internet before, and go early to relax and have some real interpersonal interaction. I... More

Went there for late breakfast last week and had a very good experience. You can tell some of the locals go there to get a bite and that is a good feeling. The "Café con Leche" is great, good coffee...ask them to go light on the milk...also had a bowl of rustic granola with yogurt and fresh seasonal fruit and... More
