We had breakfast here after staying a night in El Albergue (breakfast was included). The pancakes are absolutely delicious. They have a good variety of food and everything is made fresh. There were also fresh fruits and juices.

This place was really good. All of the andean hits with quinoa and potato and avocado. etc. Great coffee. Right on the tracks. Usually train stations are not known for a cozy courtyard with some tasty bites, but its Peru so throw all preconceptions out...More

Cafe Mayu is the most charming train station café in the route from Cusco to Macchu Picchu. If you are in Ollantaytambo and have not stayed at El Albergue, have a coffee there before your train.

Great hot chocolate, coffee, and juice drinks while waiting on the train. Great options for breakfast with everything from yogurts to eggs. Service was fast but we were never hurried.

While traveling in Peru I have been very selective in choosing where to eat because of fear of catching a stomach bug. After looking the place over I decided to give it a shot and eat there while waiting for our rail to Aguas Calientes....More

We went here twice, once while meandering around for food and the second time while waiting for the train. They have a restaurant too, but it wasn't open for lunch so we just sat in the front in the cafe section. We tried the quiche,...More

Absolutely delicious pre-train breakfast! You must try the hot chocolate, it's mind blowing:) Food was fresh, well presented and 2 people ate a breakfast for 57Sôl which is about 18usd. The great service, back garden and resident cat made the experience!!

Coffee and treats are delicious and watching the trains come and go from Machu Picchu was great. They also serve the full menue from the restaurant.
