Quirky cafe, visited for a cup cake and a drink. The cupcakes quite possibly are the best in the world........

Went with four people...everyone ordered something different...everyone raved about their food/drinks! Desserts are always fabulous, but the empanadas were amazing. Great presentation, beautiful dishes, glasses...great experience!

We were intrigued by the bold statement on the sidewalk chalkboard claiming to have the most delicious chocolate cupcake in the world. Well we certainly have not tried every chocolate cupcake in the world, this was indeed the best cupcake we have ever had! If you are craving an intensely rich chocolate experience, don't miss this! Also, the space is... More

I had several of their famous chocolate cupcakes during my time in Cusco and they are absolutely divine! Served warm and the perfect size, they are rich and delicious and just melt in your mouth. I also very highly rate their Peruvian chicken empanada - I loved this! The chicken filling is beautiful and the sauce that comes with it... More

I almost don't want to tell you about this place -- there might not be a seat for me the next time I go there! This is a small - quiet (unusual for Cuzco) place with a lovely menu and great tasting food. Not just good--great. I had a lovely leek quiche with salad - a pot of cocoa tea... More

Cool coffee shop. Very small and quaint. Heard about cupcakes and took a stroll to go. They look like any other cupcake so we were doubtful but they were excellent. Also the fruit juices were out of this world. The staff was very helpful and answered many questions about the area. We will go back for homemade yogurt.

Certainly different from any other cafe in cusco, a bit more than the average place but worth the money as the empanadas were delicious and the drinks a good size.

It is definitely a very good option where you can enjoy a good sandwich, salad, empanadas, and desserts at very reasonable prices. I highly recommend anyone to try the delicious chocolate cup cakes of this place, amazing!!

If only we'd been hungry when we stumbled on this magical gem in San Blas. It smelled amazing (baked goods). Alas we'd just eaten and we don't really do pastry. BUT we still went in and took photos. The walls and ceiling are muralled with fairies and magical trees of paper mache, LED starry night sky, and flowers. Little girls... More

Wow thank you so much for taking the time to write this comment even though you didn't get to eat at Encantasq'a. We are glad you appreciate the decorations, it took over 3 months to complete! Maybe next time your in Cusco you can come in and try some of the food. More

Description
Encantasq´a bakery is a place of fantasy, inhabited by fairies, elfs and nymphs, angels, unicorns and mythical creatures, under the guard of the custodian of the garden, The Faun. In this garden of dreams lives an elf, who from her magical kitchen and with the help of gnomes and dwarfs enjoys making happy culinary treats for the mortals that visit this eden of sensations. The earthlings who dare to enter this world of illusion are enchanted with the vivid experience, in the realm of the tree of charms and under a starry night where planets, nebulas and constelations make them feel in the sweetest and most pleasant of dreams, from where they will not want to wake up.
