Environment is cozy, has a little patio. Service was good, only 1 person working, this is not a fast food place. I enjoyed the pace very much, and... More

So, launching my handy dandy Trip Advisor app, I clicked on "Near Me Now" and found a small cafe just a few hundred yards from the hotel. It sounded ideal: quaint and a good menu, and most of all, some light eating choices. We walked down beautifully lit alley ways and within 5 minutes had arrived and entered a very... More

So you've just hiked a bunch of kilometers and don't remember what kilometers are? And you don't want to just chill out at Plaza De Armas because there's only so many times you can tell strangers no?

This little place has a huge menu. My friend loved her Cortado and I enjoy my tea. We each had a sandwich as well. The patio is a great spot with a peaceful atmosphere. The staff was very friendly.

Inexpensive delicious pasta and potatoes! Friendly staff in a small cozy place! Would have enjoyed eating outside but unfortunately there were some people smoking!

We have come back here repeatedly to relax and get some work done. We like the random but low key music they play here and the mulled wine is perfect for those cold, rainy days.

Cafe Punchay is a very special place for me. I have been coming here almost every day for the past year, ever since I moved to Cusco. Friendly staff, delicious food, amazing coffee, great location and good WiFi, and and a beautiful terrace in in a flowery garden with hummingbirds coming here to drink nectar, that all forms a unique...

We had a waffle the first time and a big breakfast the second time. The Café punchay is is well located (10min walking from the Plaza de las Armas). You can enjoy the nice terrasse under the shadow of the threes. The food and juices are really good. Perfect place to relax and enjoy Cusco.
