“Friendliest place in Cusco!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Get here soon while this place rocks!
Chris and Conny found me on CouchSurfing before I got to Cusco. They gave me good tips and advice and inexpensive quality breakfasts, soups, jugos and snacks! For a while they were my first and only friends in Cusco but because they are VERY active stewards on CouchSurfing, it's super easy to meet other travelers in the jugueria and the hostel next door that they manage. It's amazing how friendly and helpful Chris and Conny are. They never seem too busy or tired to talk to you or serve you a tasty meal.
So X-Mas in Cusco was awesome, because of Go Bananas! and Chris and Conny's (free) holiday party at the jugueria. We had Gluvein, truffles, Christmas Reggae and dance music, cakes and pasta and salad and the place was packed with cool friendly travelers! Later we had live music until the morning and at 8am the place was clean and open for business.
Seriously these guys can cook and serve. They're travelers just like you and me, driving around South America. So my advice is to get here soon to experience their hospitality before they've made a huge success out of the jugueria and decide to move on to the next adventure.
Thank you, Go Bananas!!!

“The best juguería in town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

This was my favorite spot while I was on vacation in Cusco. They have great juices and the best breakfast. If you're lucky, Chris will make you an awesome pisco sour too!

As it's also a meeting point for the local CouchSurfing community, so a great place to make some new friends.
