Arrived in Ollantaytambo, hadn't had a good coffee for a couple of weeks, and was pleasantly surprised by how good the coffee tasted, looking forward to more great coffee tomorrow.

While staying in Ollantaytambo, my husband and I had an unpleasant go around of altitude sickness. We didn't want to stay in the hotel but we couldn't do too much. We just sat at the cafe drinking the different teas they made. Must try: honey ginger and lime tea. I swear it eased my stomach pains!

We had lunch here after arriving from Cusco. We sat out on the balcony and enjoyed the views. I had Alpaca, which was excellent. My wife had a pasta (spaghetti?) dish that was a little dry, but palatable. Cold beer was nice, and service was excellent.

I was meeting a tour here and popped in to grab something for breakfast to go. Ordered the PB&J sandwich. It was excellent, although it took longer to make than I would have expected. Packed in a brown paper bag for me to take away. Had I not been pressed for time I wouldn't have minded to hang out here... More

This was such a warm lovely spot to grab a meal. We had the soup and mixed salads, both were delicious and very healthy. It was so good we came back for lunch the next day and enjoyed one of the delicious local brews and a sandwich. The owner was very charming and helped us with our Spanish. We tried... More

As soon as I stepped in I knew i was in for a treat. Nicely decorated with many good choices on the menu. Hummus sandwich and soups were my favorite.

Had the vegetarian lunch and a much needed cappuccino. Soup, veggie burger and brownie. Good value, right in the middle of town.

We came for a late dinner. The guy working came quickly and stayed attentive throughout our visit. The food was generous and tasted fine. The thing that struck me was after more than a week listening to Peruvian flutes this place was playing American rock.

Only had a cafe con leche (very nicely done) here but we were struck by the friendliness of the owner and the nice vibe of the cafe. Will be going back there for more of a meal soon.
