Me and my girlfriend went there looking for wifi and good food. Landed at the right place. We had to wait hours for our bus there and we ate really good.

The decorations and details is beautiful but the food is terrible! And personally I rather have an ugly but delicious restaurant. How can someone make a bad pasta....well they did, the worst pasta I’ve ever had! Dull hot chocolate, which was a real deception since...they sell food chocolate everywhere! Just avoid it!More

After spending 3 days in Puno, my boyfriend and I were overjoyed to find this little cafe nestled in a sidestreet along the main tourist strip. We had explored much of Puno but had not found the cute kind of cafe we were looking for...- where you can just sit down and relax in peace. But finding Cafe Buho was a dream come true, a beautifully decorated, peaceful little paradise in the middle of bustling and sometimes overwhelming Puno. The couple that owns the restaurant are very nice and wonderful to talk with. And the coffee might be the best cup we’ve had in all of Peru! Cheers!More

After arriving late on the train from Cusco and negotiating from the railway station to the hotel, we spent sometime wandering through the pedestrian mall looking for where to eat. We always have a policy to zip up a side street to find somewhere less...touristy and more local. We found Café Buho and ventured in. We found it to be pretty cute and cosy although we found the menu a little limiting and disappointing. We didn't find either the food or the service very good and we would suggest you try other places.More

We came for a little snack in the afternoon. The place is super cosy and the orange juice and the Crêpes were delicious!

I had what was called a "pizza" on the menu. But really it was just a pile of vegetables on a crust. It wasn't quite what I would think of as a pizza, but maybe that's the Canadian in me speaking. It's not what *I*...am used to. Peas and green beans on a veggie pizza don't make sense to me. But this is not a complaint. Because honestly, I would order it again. It was REALLY good! My partner had what was a simple ham and cheese sandwich and he loved it!More

Spent a couple of hours here this afternoon - lovely staff, excellent coffee, hot chocolate and cake. Great wifi also! Would definitely recommend.

I went here with my family based on positive reviews and hope that teens would like Pizza/Pasta options. The atmostphere and service are nice but we had pizza, lasagna, and pasta and no one liked their food.

This was our first meal in Peru. This cafe has a nice appeal from the street frontage. The food was great. Staff incredibly friendly especially Caty. Very reasonably priced.

Cafe Buho looked inviting from the street and it was a nice cozy place. We enjoyed our pizza and the German waffle was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
