Food was good but missing small plates to share on the menu. Service was slow. Disappointed only taking cash. Internet was not working well. Find this place expensive compared to others

We came in here several times while in Huaraz. The breakfast are huge, they have loads of fresh juices, and they’ll package your food up as a packed lunch if you’re going trekking. Good wi-fi.

We came in for a light meal in early evening, hardly any people. We ordered a quinoa salad (25 sol, not cheap) and a vegetables and noodles soup (18 sol) and waited for a very long time to get what we ordered. We had time, but..... What we ordered was good and we ordered a yogurt (very good).... Again a long wait. No wonder they have a corner with a library, so you can read a book while you wait... ;-)

Excellent waffles, fruit, cappuccino and cookies. The best book selection I’ve seen since coming to South America four months ago. Delicious, cozy, and welcoming! Definitely worth a visit.

California Cafe is like the perfect neighborhood cafe just down the street from your house, but it’s located more than 10,000 feet above sea level and filled with people from all over world. My wife and I tried California Cafe because the highly rated coffee. We quickly realized the place, people and food all combined to create a little home away from home.

On our second time visiting the cafe, we asked about their sign announcing a regular Friday afternoon ultimate frisbee pickup game, and were welcomed to play. We had a blast running around for a few hours, meeting and talking with people, and generally having a good time.

We came California Cafe for the coffee, and left with friends and fun memories of our honeymoon stay in Huaraz.
