“Best in town”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Im torn between being happy that we didn't find Jacks earlier. Had we found it on day one I don't think we would have gne anywhere else, which would have been a shame. But at the same time I feel I missed out on a few extra days of great food.
Do yourself a favor and get the mixed lassie, and split the Gordo and either the carmalized banana pancakes or French toast with a friend. Great way to start the day!

“Excellent food - american sytle breakies and pancakes”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

We were dying for some 'home food' after alot of rice and beans on our trip, and had Jacks recommended to us. We went along and it was SOOO nice. Really good food, typical american style which was what we wanted, good prices, nice vibe. Recommend if any backpackers are feeling home sick! :-)

“Oh the chocolate muffins...”
Reviewed 13 March 2012

If like us you are craving a really good chocolate muffin and coffee don´t look anywhere else. On our 7 day stay here we went to Jacks around 5 of them to get our coffee fix and the chocolate muffins are to DIE FOR!! The price is good and service was always with a smile. Also a good range of English Magazine´s on offer.

“Bring your appetite, Jack's will satisfy anyone”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

We have been staying in the San Blas area of Cusco for the past week and have frequented Jack's enough to have our own table set aside. Our kids (VERY picky eaters, ages 11, 9 and 5) love the food, I have enjoyed the veggie burger several times (I would rank Jack's veggie burger as one of the best in the world) and te French toast as well. The portions are very generous, the service is timely and courteous, the entire establishment is clean, we have never had to wait very long to be seated and when we did wait they took our order ahead so the food arrived at our table as we sat down. E desserts are equally large and muy delicioso, not to be missed. Only drawback to Jack's is the room can become somewhat cacophonous when full, if you have an altitude headache perhaps come back after you feel better. Great location, outstanding value (cash only) and memorable repast, Jack's is a must-do on the Cusco itinerary for anyone.

“Excellent cafe food - fantastic coffee”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

After a long inca trail trek, you'll want a good coffee and this is the place. Had two meals here over a week or so and got to try the all day breakfast options (try the yummy grilled and herbed mushrooms) as well as a great burger.

Highly recommended - western grade food served up with a smile.
