Returned from Cusco just twelve hours prior it was after a lengthy run along the coast that Breakfast was sought at Homemade, the cutesy Miraflores Café largely empty thirty minutes after opening as TLC’s No Scrubs played from overhead speakers mounted along the sizable back dining room’s ceiling.

Toqued by Chef Gina Bernuy and officially titled “Homemade …hecho en casa,” the bright pink gate outside difficult to miss at calle Henry Revett 259, those entering Homemade will immediately notice a case of Pastries just after crossing a shaded patio, the selections diverse and tempting while the décor itself sports a very feminine feel created by flowers, plants and prints plus a pile of Children’s toys set alongside low-slung couches.

Not a typical Peruvian Restaurant by any stretch, the menu dipping and diving into various genres with the only real ‘focus’ that of scratch-made plates created from good ingredients, it was at a leisurely pace that servers went about doing daily routines before taking orders, two frozen Coffees soon to arrive that were unfortunately loaded with Sugar while both a Cinnamon Roll and oversized Alfajor were exceptional, the former wound tight but fluffy and the Cookie with Manjar Blanco so delicate that it fractured in an attempt to pick it up, the slightly runny center and warmth leading one to assume it had not been out of the oven very long.

Dining with the sort of person who cannot just subsist on sweets to start the day, Homemade’s “Mexican Chicken Club Sandwich” filling a need for “something with Avocado” while also offering great housemade Bread and a pile of crispy fried Potatoes, it was by a coin-flip that Carrot Cake Pancakes were selected instead of Churro French Toast, the single Vegan Cake dense and moist with bold spicing and plenty of natural sweetness from Fruit and Honey while Chef Bernuy’s Tres Leches Cake proved an improbable stunner, the base almost more liquid than solid yet still maintaining its form while decorative Cream on top was not too sweet, but instead an ethereal landing place for freshly ground Cinnamon.

Cafe with a beautiful patio garden, very friendly helpful staff, and delicious food! Best gluten free bread I have had in South America. Great options for every diet; gluten free, vegan, vegetarian, and meat eaters.

Warm and inviting atmosphere, diverse menu and very tasty food. The sandwiches, salads, jugos, and deserts are all consistently good.

First time in this café/ restaurant. Healthy options and tasty food. Vegetarian food and for different likes. Variety of drinks and nice creamy soups. Will definitely come again but you may have to wait a little as it is a very popular place. Nice colors and interesting information of different events in the district. The right place to relax and enjoy friends and food. Parking can be a problem.
