Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Generous but not ridiculous portions on the breakfast plates we ordered. Fresh, tasty, sweet stuff (blueberry compote, orange-quinoa marmalade), spot-on coffee, and the savory everything else was just right, too. 10/10 would recommend for breakfast.

Had a great little breakfast here before leaving Cusco. The coffee was amazing and had the avocado toast with tomatoes. So fresh and delicious. Wish I went sooner, would’ve have breakfast there each day!

We stumbled on to a great little restaurant here. It was only a short walk from the Plaza De Armas. We felt welcomed immediately. Food was outstanding as was the service. Many different varieties of food from Peruvian to burgers and Italian. The fries were...home made and outstanding.More

I don’t understand the rave reviews. Food was mediocre at best. We ordered JC’s Special and huevos rancheros. Menu very limited, poor service. I had to request jam for the dry toast three times. At least the eggs were cooked as requested, but we won’t...return.More

I stumbled across this little gem yesterday and returned there again today. The food is outstanding, they have an excellent range of smoothies and hot drinks, including herbal teas, the service is friendly and quick, the prices are very reasonable. I can't recommend JC's highly...enough...give it a go!More

We were tired and didn’t want to walk all the way to the square as recommended by our hotel. This cafe had excellent food! My husband had the LomoSaltado. I had the chicken breast (pounded thin) over a bed of mashed potatoes with a creamy...mushroom sauce. The veges on the side (broccoli, green beans, and carrots). Were also delicious:).More

TAKEAWAY BASED REVIEW. I was staying 5 minutes away from JCs and used them as a place to grab my evening meals on days I wanted to chill and eat at my accommodation. I usually walked in around 8PM and was met with friendly, kind...staff who spoke good English. After you order you can wait inside and they have music playing with a television on as well. I had ordered the ham and cheese toastie, steak sandwich and chicken tortilla on different occasions. On every occasion the food was prepared in good time and packaged in perfect takeaway form - a white box for the main food, pots/sachets for any sources that would usually go with the meal, napkins and plastic cutlery all in a carrier bag. The food was still hot every time I sat down to eat after a 5 minute walk back in the cold Cusco evening climate. The portions are generous which is ideal if you’ve been out exploring around town or out on an excursion during the day. All meals I tried were well cooked and very tasty. The ham and cheese was my favourite of the lot. I would recommend any travellers who want good food to takeaway JCs. I am sure the food is just as good if you eat in also (although as I say I have not experienced that myself).More

We stopped in for dinner with our teens. There’s a lot of variety to choose from. Good prices. High points: smoothies and cocktails. Tacos were just okay.

Best vegetarian breakfast I’ve had in Peru so far! (They also have non-veg options). Delicious food, fresh orange juice and coca tea. Definitely recommend this place👌 Walking distance from the center.

My girlfriend and I shared the Huevos Rancheros (refried beans, tortilla, spicy salsa, fried egg) and a yoghurt and honey fruit salad for breakfast. Exceptional. I am a real foodie and this was just so well made and so delicious that we wanted to come...back again for lunch and dinner. Please ignore this review and don't come because we want to always be able to get a table!!!!!More
