I've no idea why this place has such a high rating. I decided to check it out based on existing reviews and I was pretty disappointed when I got there. It's not really a 1 star (3 star is more fair) but I felt I...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...More
