We liked this place, but it's not the best. The food is good, but the guys are very slow. We took a good breakfast, but expended more than 1 hour there.

Wonderful lemonade, good ginger tea, and delicious chocolate bar. Sandwiches and quinoa soup are also very good. Simple, but tasty food.

Comfortable establishment with good, healthy food. Perfect after a long day of travelling. Great soups, sandwiches and desserts. Free WiFi is a bonus.

We really loved this small cafe/restaurant. The food was good, reasonably priced and the owner really pleasant. We really suggest trying when in Ollantaytambo.

Great small cafe with best beer. There are just a few places where beer from the Cerveceria del Valle Sagrado is sold and this is one of them. NIce people and great view to the main plaza.

The owner was very pleasant and the food quality was good.... More

This place has great food, a diverse menu, and fresh baked goods. It is right in the plaza. You can sit inside or out. The service is good and friendly. The menu caters to Western tastes but includes local fare. The vibe is similar to what you might find near a college campus. The carrot ginger soup is really good.... More
