“Great coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012 via mobile

We were in Cusco for 4 days and had 5 meals at jacks! It was refreshing to get great coffee and fresh food at the same place. We skipped the free hotel breakfast for this place every morning.

“Would choose jacks every time!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

We ate here five times during our stay in cusco. Amazing staff and service, excellent value for money- the dishes are BIG fresh and tasty!

Between the two of us we ate 10 different meals and they were awesome! The coffee is honestly top notch and shows off true Peruvian single origin beans:)

We wish the Australian owner would open up a Jack's in Sydney!

“Lots of good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

This place seemed like a nice version of a "burger joint" back home; lots of options, many vegetarian choices. I had a veggie burger, it was not the frozen patty you get in the states, but a freshly made delight. They serve breakfast all day. Servings were quite large, too much for us to eat, and we had been walking all day and were quite hungry. Reasonably priced, we were quite happy with our meal here.

“Great pit stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

After touring the ruins early in the morning this was a great place to recharge with a hearty breakfast. While waiting for our meal we saw locals stopping in to sell produce fresh from their baskets. The nicest, friendliest service of any of the restaurants we visited in Cusco. The French toast, fresh squeezed orange juice, and cappuccino were excellent. Great family atmosphere.

“Nice comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

Its a great spot for fresh fruit juices, pancakes and breakfast items in general. Its clean and quick and pretty touristy. But hits the spot for you home food craving. Graet drinks too.

Try the restaurant right next to it, which does not even have a name for it. But locals frequent this place and they have amazing value menu economico - for 2.50$ you get a nice hearty portion of the soup of the day and a choice of items for your entree and a chicha. Have to say that it wa sone of the best local food experiences we had. Dont go for the Western items go for the local ones.
