“Great People-Watching - Decent Peru-Diner Food”
Reviewed January 4, 2010

Great location on the Plaza de Armas, with three balconies for 2-3 people at a time.

All the menus off the Plaza de Armas will start to look the same, and the Yuka Mama is no exception. However, we very much enjoyed camping out on the balcony and watching the people go by and around the Plaza de Armas.

Yuka Mama is a nice spot for coffee, snacks, lunch or even dinner if you're not into a large gourmet-style dinner. If you like diner-fare, then the Aji de Gallina will not disappoint. I wouldn't personally try anything all that adventurous here, but the basic are reliable and tasty.

“Great breakfast spot”
Reviewed December 26, 2008

We ate breakfast at Yaku Mama Grill on the Plaza de Armas in Cusco, Peru three times. They are open early, when most of the other restaurants are not open yet, so you can get a hearty breakfast before the tours start. The prices are very reasonable, and the food is excellent. We loved the pancake breakfast special. The pancake is not an American pancake, but really a crepe. Try the chocolate ones -- they are yummy! You also get a nice fruit salad, juice, tea/coffee and bread -- they are all safe to eat, so chow down! The banos are also very clean. Two thumbs up!
