It´s a cafe-pastery which offers some pastas and other dishes too. They have two places in town, one with a walking distance and other that you´ll have to take a taxi from city center

Wonderful vibe, very close to where I live here in Cusco, and delicious food. (Wifi didn't work when I went, which stinks, but I hear it usually works, so maybe it was a goof.)

We could not believe the price in here for a set lunch - especially for the quality. This is a European style place serving Peruvian classics. The set lunch portions are enormous and include mini sandwiches to start, a portion of a classic peruvian or european dish for main and a massive cake. We had pasta in Huacchina sauce, and... More

Walked down here for lunch from Plaza de Armas. The aji de gallena empanada was delicious, and everything in here looked yummy! A nice place to wander into for a drink and snack after going to Koricancha.

Nice looking deserts, great coca de mate tea, free wi-fi, and good atmosphere. I went to this establishment twice and had the chicken diet soup which was perfect while being altitude sick and cold. The service wasn't great but the food and free wi-fi made up for it. Also, the juices were fresh and excellent.

We stumbled into this place by accident during lunch time. It didn't look like much outside but the inside was renovated into European chic. They also offer free WiFi which was quite fast. It was 18 soles (~USD$7) for a three course lunch with a starter, entree and dessert. The menu had about 15 different starters and maybe 10 different... More

Food is good. Atmosphere is nice. We were offered a glass of Pisco Sour. Service not included. Cheap for European standards
