Food was good but missing small plates to share on the menu. Service was slow. Disappointed only taking cash. Internet was not working well. Find this place expensive compared to others

We came in here several times while in Huaraz. The breakfast are huge, they have loads of fresh juices, and they’ll package your food up as a packed lunch if you’re going trekking. Good wi-fi.

Went here for breakfast, shocked at the prices considering we were in Huaraz. The breakfast did not live up to its price tag. The 'English breakfast' tea was not English breakfast. Could have made better at the hostel for around a fifth of the price.

We ate lunch here and had the falafel sandwich and chips. We enjoyed the food and took some chocolate chip cookies away for our next day hike - would definitely recommend!

Great spot and easy to get to! Plus they have good coffee, which is hard to find in Peru; good WiFi; and an English-speaking staff who can help with everything from maps to directions. The bookstore/swap is the best I saw in Peru, too. Try...More
