As soon as I walked into Cafe Morena I knew I found a gem. Luke and Lisette (the owner) greeted us with big smiles - the food, the atmosphere, the hosts' personalities - all equally amazing.

I spent hours hanging out there - ordering coffees, deserts, fruit shakes, teas, you name it. Their menu is simple (which I like) and every item on the there is made with care and great attention to detail.

The place is classy, yet relaxed, and every bit of food is well worth the money.

The beef stirfry sandwich (Cosquenita?) is my favorite - ate it at least 3 times during my stay in Cusco.

Highly recommended!

We have been here twice in two days, and find both the food and drinks to be amazing! Would highly recommend the hot chocolate, which seems to have an endless number of marshmallows in it, the pineapple, mango and coconut juice, and the tasty pork sandwich! Luke and Lissete provide you with such a lovely welcome in such a lovely atmosphere, they have customers returning multiple times.

My boyfriend and I have now been to Café Morena more than four times in the past three days. At Café Morena they serve great food with international as well as local flavours for an affordable price. We will especially recommend their Quinoa salad and delicious sandwiches, who are big enough for lunch as well as diner - but try to keep some of your apetite, so that you can try their cakes. The service is the best we have experienced in Peru so far, and they make you feel at home in their cosy and trends café.

I visited this place several times when in Cusco. The pumpkin soup and sandwiches were excellent, as was the peach and mint ice-tea! Yum!
The owners, Luke and Lissete, are very friendly and welcoming. They gave us several useful tips and bits of advice for Cusco. I highly recommend this place.
