Cafe Cafe – Beware of the Upselling Servers

I went to Cafe Cafe for breakfast because they have a big patio, which I figured I would be able to eat with my dog. I was right.

I ordered an orange juice to start while I perused the menu, and saw that the Machu Picchu breakfast (24 soles) includes a coffee and juice.

This is just too much.
The Machu Picchu breakfast – dry and boring

 

I told the waitress I wanted that, and she asked which juice I wanted with my breakfast. I pointed to the orange juice that she had just brought to my table, and she said I couldn’t because it was already at my table – even though I hadn’t touched it.

The Machu Picchu breakfast came and was a tamale that looked to be made from a sweet potato with a chicken filling, some baked sweet potato slices, and a half of a turkey sandwich. There was no salsa to dip the tamale or potato slices, and in the end the breakfast left me unsatisfied.

When the bill came the juice (15 soles) was almost as much as the breakfast. I don’t think I will return to Cafe Cafe. In my opinion it’s just another tourist trap and not worth visiting.
