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.

Really nice cafe on the main plaza. I came in for a mid-morning snack and had a coffee and a cinnamon bun, both of which were great. Other times I came in for chocolate croissants and an empanada I think. Really nice relaxed place with good wifi. Nice to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by. The... More

There are a lot of restaurants / cafes around Plaza de Armas but we found this one to be the one of the best. We had a three course combo lunch which was perfectly adequate although ideally we would have had a few extra potatoes on the main course.. 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

I came here for lunch and ordered a large salad. You get to pick three, and I chose quinoa tabbouleh, potato salad, and rainbow (beet and carrot with avocado). It was so fresh and delicious! They wash their fresh vegetables in clean water, so no worries there. Fun, friendly service too!

This cafe is great. The owner speaks English and is very friendly. I ate lunch here 2 days in a row as so good. They wash all their salads etc in filtered water so if your hanging out for SALAD this is the place to come. They also do excellent coffee and I liked their quinoa soup. Located in the... More
