I was delighted to find this cafe while exploring C Street. The price mildly exceeded the portions, but the food was delicious. Mom and I had the anticuchos pobres and guacamole frito with a pisco punch. The pisco punch brought me right back to Lima, and I was so happy to see anticuchos on the menu that I almost squealed. On this July day, the outdoor seating was a little warm, but reasonably comfortable. Whether you’re unfamiliar with Peruvian cuisine or a born and raised Peruvian, I would recommend checking this place out. A delightful cultural surprise in the heart of Missouri.

I have been to this restaurant MULTIPLE times and I am never disappointed! The food is just as described in the menu and served well. I have taken MANY visitors here as it is unlike any other restaurant in town and I know the chef will not disappoint.

1st time here and loved it. Started with a sangria, it was good except I would prefer it without the cinnamon. The spicy shrimp caprese salad is soooo good, but be forewarned, it does have a kick! Also tried chicken on a stick and it had a ton of flavor and cooked perfectly. For the main course I choose the Chicken Para Rayos which was really good, sort of a curry type sauce with lots of flavor. I was also able to try the lemon-basil mojito which was awesome but the ginger peach mojito had an odd aftertaste. Great atmosphere, we were seated upstairs, which was loud and a little tough to hear everyone at our table. Great service, highly recommend.

Cafe Cusco is a jewel in Springfield - it would be a jewel in Manhattan for that matter. The food is exceptional and you get a lot for your money. The service is great. Good Peruvian food is difficult to find so we were both glad to find this restaurant for our overnight stop here.
