I came here for breakfast with friends and was surprised that we were the only ones in the cafe because the breakfast selection was actually very good! I recommend the pancakes. There are many options and they are fluffy and warm and very well-made! The omelets were good but a little plain. The atmosphere is calm and quiet. It's nice... More

Menu both in Spanish and English. Variety of fruit juices and sandwiches, or breakfast combos. "Surtido" juice on orange was great and it came with the "Desayuno Americano" combo. Toasts were awesome and the milk was fresh. Definitely a place to frequent.

This is a typical restaurant you would expect to find in Cusco and is within walking distance from Plaza de Armas. The food is good, but the decoration not so new, to say the least. It is good to dine on a budget.

We had coffee and cappuccino. It was perhaps the best coffee that we have had in Peru so far. We didn't have any food, but I'd recommend this place for a caffeine fix.

Great pancakes, great hot chocolate. Go upstairs to rest a bit and to silently enjoy your meal while watching the trouble outside.

Great place to have a hot chocolate and some snacks, especially pancakes! If I ever come back, I will go there again.

We went here for breakfast because it has such good reviews, but it was horrible. My cappuccino was way too sweet and my breakfast sandwich was bland - no flavor. The quality of the food was not good. My boyfriend had an omelet, and he had to ask for all the condiments to give it just the smallest bit of... More

A well known cafe by the locals. They have two places. Runs by Peruvian Gentelmen and opens early in the morning.

This little shop is in competition with big bad Starbucks, so show some love! The beans are local from Cusco, and it is an amazing cup of coffee. It is located very centrally as well. Unfortunately, there is no wifi, and it closes early. So use Internet before, and go early to relax and have some real interpersonal interaction. I... More
