This cafe is nothing to look at from either inside or outside, but don't let that fool you. The coffee was really good and the cake was delicious. It was much cheaper than many other places we tried and the service was good. When lots of locals go there it must be good.

My husband and I ducked into this cafe while it was raining in Cusco looking for a snack. I had yogurt, granola, and fruit and he had a grilled ham and cheese. The food wasn't anything fancy, but the service was wonderful and the food was good, fast, and cheap.

This cafe is a real coffee place, running by the owner himself. small and simple. Best coffee I´ve tasted in town and very reasonable prices. Near the main square so you could also take it away and seat in the sun.

I quickly ordered a "café americano para llevar" - which was amazing! The place looks cozy, and was full with local people (which for me is a good sign). Will probably come back to try their cake sometime soon.

Awesome coffee and pastries in a relaxed atmosphere. This was the only cup of espresso that my husband deemed up to his standard of all the places we tried in Cusco!

If you want an idea of where Cusco locals go for "lonche" after work for some coffee, dessert, and some bread for conversation with friends, this is a great hole in the wall to visit.

We stopped there two times, to have a mate de coca and a desert : the tres leches and the passion fruit pie were simply excellent.

Great desserts, ice cream, and coffee. The shop is small and unassuming, but it’s friendly with hand-made desserts and exceptional coffee. We enjoyed the carrot cake and apple pie (with ice cream). Perfect place to catch your breath and recharge.
