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.

Went to this place as close to the hotel and open to 10pm. Lovely soups , pasta and bruschetta. Good prices. Went back a second time on late evening arrival in Cusco and just as good.

We were looking for an outside patio to sit, drink, eat and relax at for some time in Cusco that had cheap prices. This place was excellent for all of that. The food was amazing and had a good vegetarian menu and the drinks were fresh and delicious. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The flowers and patio atmosphere... More

Great options for vegetarians, I had a baguette which was so fresh and delicious with a homemade garlic aioli. My boyfriend got the waffles which were also delicious! But it was really the soy cappuccino that made my heart sing - as they are very few and far between when traveling - it was a nice little luxury for me!... More
