Tiny mellow and cosy cafe at plaza Nazarenas in Cusco. Very tranquile to relax or research your websites... Very kind service lady Try the piscos which are about one third of what you pay somewhere else, delicious... Only gets four points because I didn't have any food... The cakes and quiches look amazing though... Go!

The coffee is great! The banana cake is fabulous and so is the decadent chocolate cake. The natural juices are phenomenal! Make sure you take a break and stop by.

Needed a cheap lunch and found this place in a lovely square. Sandwiches all excellent and freshly made. Juices ditto. Staff were charming and it was spotlessly clean!

I love omelettes! I've struggled to find a place in Cusco who serves one that I like, since my trip is several months long- I've tried quite a few. Finally, Mama Oli has satisfied me. I ordered the omelette campesino. It came very quickly-fresh and hot! It was also a good size portion. I added a lemonade and a slice... More

Had a wonderful salad (stock up on fresh greens instead of all the soup and rice in Peru) wirh carrot and sweet potatoe. Afterwards the six of us shared 4 types of cake: lemon merengue, chocolate, maracuja cheesecake and chocolate banana. Absolutely amazing! Great french vice, loved it

Just stopped here for a quick smoothie, service was kinda slow and the table and chairs were extremely rickety but the smoothie was delicious!

Nice spot just out of the way of the main square but was a little disappointed with the food. I had the orange and lemon pie and the pastry tasted like it had been left out for a few days and had gone very soft. The coffee also tasted burnt.

My friend and I have been here various times to enjoy their banana chocolate cake which is amazing. They are always so friendly and have great cafe con leche, too!
