Cascanuez Café Bar

Top choice cafe in Cajamarca

Every city needs a Cascanuez, a place where you can go at 4pm for your tea or merienda (afternoon snack) and have a bow-tied waiter serve you a hot drink and a sweet treat. In Cajamarca this means cafe pasado (coffee made by mixing thick coffee essence with boiling water) and a choice of nine varieties of tres leches cake.

Decor is British tearoom meets- French bistro, music is (yawn) Kenny G, and service is slightly over formal.
