We stopped by Jack's on the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint. Coming from Melbourne, Australia, we have pretty high standards for a cup of coffee and these were well truly met here. Jack's Cafe also excelled in the food department. a good mix of local and "western" menu items. I love to eat local and national... More

Racism and disrespect. As a black woman living in the US, I am well aware of racism and have been subject to it numerous times in the US. But I can definitely say it was my first time in Cusco - at a restaurant I really enjoyed eating at in the past. Let me explain: my two black friends and... More

Jack's Cafe Restaurant is something of an institution in Cusco. It is so popular with both peruvians and travelers that sometimes you have to wait for a table. The food is delicious and the portions are huge. I have particularly enjoyed the wonderful salads that they make but they have a huge range of Peruvian and European food.The food is... More

Really delicious and high quality food, fresh orange juice and freshly ground coffee. Around 80soles for lunch and drinks for 3 people, very lovely and very full by the end. Also told us where they get their coffee beans from so that we could purchase some because we enjoyed it so much! Thanks Jack's!

Amazing little cafe tucked away from the main square. During my stay in Cusco I ate in Jack's about 7 times. The food is always to a high standard, the portions are huge and it is very accommodating for vegetarians and vegans. The avocado toast was amazing!! Be aware the portions are huge! So if you only want something light... More

A friendly home-away-from-home for travelers. It seems like every time I'm in Cusco, Jack's Cafe beckons me when I'm tired or the weather is bad or I just want to feel at home . . . along with plenty of other travelers who feel just like I do. Friendly service, hearty food, and a place and time to relax. Go... More

We shared a couple of burgers, falafel and beef. They were both really tasty and reasonably priced. The cafe had a great atmosphere and the service was flawless. Highly recommended!

Great food, fast service! For a bunch of Aussies in Cusco for a month, Jack's became a regular stop for us whenever we were craving a taste of home. Between everyone in our group, we managed to try everything on the menu... no complaints!

This cafe is tucked away not far from the main square and worth going to. The menu is vast and all meals were good. I had banana pancakes and was not disappointed - they were huge and delicious. Coffee was the best I'd had in South America. However the cafe is filled with tourists so if you want to meet... More

Was craving a Thai curry which is very difficult to find in Peru and South America in general. Finally found it at Jack's Cafe last night and was impressed - huge portion, full of great flavour and well presented. Friendly staff also.
