Plaza San Francisco, Cusco, Peru

Its 2nd restaurant, opened 2015 formerly as Green Point 2. Menu is similar to its 1st restaurant but more concise and prices are lower here. Everything is vegan, from breakfast to spaghetti, burger, cake, waffles, smoothies and fresh baked bread. Open Mon-Sat 9:00am-4:00pm.

First Review by maynard7

expensive, salty and slow - Edit

Staff are friendly when you get their attention, but I found that very hard, I was virtually ignored consistently and it took 45 minutes before I could place my order. It was 1:30 and they'd run out of the set menu so was forced to order from the very expensive options on the main menu. My sandwich was extremely expensive, a very small portion and extremely salty. Lovely location though.

Pros: pretty patio, all vegan

Cons: expensive , run out of set menu, salty

Really tasty most of the times - Edit

All vegan menu. Some dishes are expensive for the size. They have a lunch menu which is supposedly to be a better value for what you get. Staff was nice and they also have empanadas and other snack options. Nice patio.

Pros: Mostly tasty, Nice patio, Friendly staff

Cons: Some portions are small for their price, A bit pricey

Our favourite eating spot in Cusco - Edit

We were living 1.5 months in Cusco and this was definitely our favourite place to eat. The menu del dia is really cheap, has a drink of the day, salad buffet, soup(!), main, and small dessert. The bread and sauces at the buffet are fantastic! I met the staff and owners on multiple occasions and discussed the food with them and I can assure that all the food is always made with the best ingredients, cleaned well with filtered water, and they strive that every meal is the kind of experience that they want you to think of when you think of the best vegan food; and it is.

Don't forget that they have a fantastic breakfast (best beans on toast I've ever had, but don't think it was cheap or simple). They bake all their breads, cookies, and cakes fresh the night before at their private bakery just off site, and the chocolate cake is in the top 3 of my life, vegan or not! And the quinoa cookies are fantastic as well! They offer a full juice bar, will make custom orders, and have a large selection of medicinal teas with a guide to their medicinal properties.

Free wifi, a great vibe, friendly staff, top quality food. 5 out of 5 stars. Remember to tip, they deserve it!

The only other thing to mention is that Peruvians tend to use a LOT of salt, so if you order a savory dish and don't like heavily salted food ask for "gringo salt" ;)

Top dish: Creole Spagetti, Arroz Chaufa, Menu del dia

**I forgot to mention the first time around, if you love their food as much as I did then check out their cooking school. I took 4-5 classes and even volunteered with them. It was a great experience and I have been better in the kitchen ever since!

Pros: Best food in Cusco all around, Large portions and cheap, Free filtered water

Cons: Sometimes too salty, May get very busy at lunch time, It's not near me.

Beautiful Presentation, Food, Hit or Miss - Edit

This place is adorable and friendly, but we really didn't care for 3 of the four things we had. The set lunch menu is the way to go. The ceviche, bean burger, soup and the savory breakfast were all just ok. I love that it's all vegan. Unfortunate it isn't as tasty as places that are half the price in town.

Pro tip. The baked goods right inside are delish and very cheap.

Pros: desserts are yum!, all vegan , lunch menu

Cons: expensive , food is just soso.

good food but not consistent - Edit

We had the savoury breakfast there and it was delicious. You get a drink and i asked for a mocha no worries. I took my friends there with me next time and we all ordered the savoury breakfast when we asked for drinks this time they said yeah thats okay but then said oh it'll be 2 soles extra and we said okay thats fine (the first time i wasnt charged) then after they came back out saying that its too much trouble making those drinks having to melt the chocolate so they are going to charge us full price for 2 and we can get one included. They said we could get coffee cause its easier to make included in the price but had to pay extra for anything with chocolate. The coffees and chocolate drinks are the same price on the menu. We were first there that day and it wasnt busy and the first time i went it was late morning more busy but straight forward ording. I asked why last time it was alright and this time it wasnt. They said it was just too hard to melt the chocolate. So we said cancel the drinks we will get teas and when they came back out they said well we already started making those drinks so instead of charging you full price for 2 we will charge you each 2 extra soles for the drinks. At least the chocolate truffles are 3 soles everytime because they are delicious and not too hard for them to sell us lol

Pros: all vegan had chocolate desserts

Overall I would recommend going here if you are in cusco!

Pros: outdoor seating , Gluten Free , raw and cooked , small shop

Cons: No espresso ( filter coffee)

Absolutely love this place - Edit

Everything is superb - food, service, atmosphere. I would give 5 stars if it wasn't for the fact that processed sugar is used in the sweets (which seems counterintuitive for a place like this). Why not panela and / or stevia or coconut sugar?

Tasty and healthy - Edit

I was there twice and loved it. The lunch menu is great value with a drink, a salad a main course and a desert for 15soles (December 2016). The salad buffet was different every time with many delicious options apart from the basic lettuce and tomatoes. Three different salsas, one is from pumpkin!
I also had a burger and fries there, which was tasty and huge. Everything was obviously homemade (quinoa burger, fries and sauces).
Since I missed lunch they ordered me to help myself by the remaining salad budget for free which was really nice!
Everything here is fresh, prepared with care and on the healthy side (even the fries had hardly any fat, if at all).

Pros: Tasty , Huge portions, Healthy

Cons: Except for lunch, prices are a tiny winy in the up

best breakfast in Peru - Edit

After a 16 hour bus ride I was really hoping for some good food. A boy did we get some. The savoury breakfast was great value for money, very healthy and will destroy your hunger for the day. I'll be back. A must stop for all vegans and non-vegans alike. Food for everybody.

Pros: nice courtyard, friendly staff, delicious food

Cons: wobbly tables, but easily forgiven

Great food, nice atmposphere, more tables - Edit

Having eaten several times at the original Green Point location, i had high expectations for their second location, the Green Patio (a.k.a Green Point 2, a.k.a. Green Point San Francisco), and i was not disappointed. In fact, I slightly prefer the menu at this location, as it has a few appealing items not found at the original Green Point (try the burritos and tequeños).

Also, it's nice to be able to walk in and go straight to a table, without the wait often experienced at the ever-popular original location during peak hours. There is an indoor dining room as well as a spacious patio.

Enjoy!

Updated from previous review on 2016-09-13

Pros: Great food, with some unique menu items, greater seating capacity than original location

Cons: Not open for dinner

Paradise - Edit

Feb. 2016 - Discovering Green Point 2 after our enthusiasm with GP 1 was another lovely surprise - the menu was really exquisite, the place was cosy and lively and had a great atmosphere. Absolutely loved everything about it.

Pros: wonderful meals: delicious and beautiful, cosy atmosphere, lovely

As good as the other GP (or better?) - Edit

This Green Point is a bit different than the other one. Although the menu is not as impressive, the food was also great (or even better?). However this one closes much earlier, so this might be a good option for lunch, leaving the other one for the evening. Again, all vegan, all great.

Pros: great food

Cons: closes early

Green Point 2 - Edit

I ate here twice and BOTH TIMES I got terrible stomach cramps several hours after. I got the lunch menu both times, I'm guessing it must have been something not clean in the salad bar. It sits out all day. And Peruvians aren't always good about cleanliness of food. I've lived in Peru 6 months, and gotten sick at least 4 times. If you steer clear of the lettuce you might be ok. Maybe order something off the menu. [edit by staff - see ToS].

Pros: You can sit outside

Cons: Food took FOREVER , Got really sick after, Not as good as the other location

great! - Edit

We had the vegan empanada, which my meat eater friend said was the BEST he's ever had- and we've been travelling SA for 2 months and he's eaten a lot of empanada. Yes it was more expensive at 4soles, but worth it. We had a choc cake for 7sole which was very rich and delicious. I had mango kombucha, which was good.

Pros: huge menu, good service, all vegan menu

Cons: a little pricey for some items

Fantastic Vegan Food - Edit

A must in Cusco! As of Dec 2015, the lunch special is 12 soles - juice, plate of yummy salad, soup, choice of a Peruvian or international main, and a little dessert. We loaded up the salad and bread two days in a row - so were able to have the mains for dinner!! The food is great quality, all homemade and using innovative techniques. Plus there's vegan dessert. Winner.

Pros: Delicious, Homemade, Innovative

Just great - Edit

I went here twice during my stay in Cusco, and if lived there I'd probably be a regular. The first time I had the spaghetti with seitan that was plain marvelous. The second time I had the quinoa burger which wasn't as good, a bit tasteless with undercooked fries. The savory empanada was good. All in all I loved the place and miss it while travelling other parts of Peru.

Pros: Taste, Good variety of food selections

Super Impresed - Edit

This may be one of the best vegan restaurants I've ever been to. The food is super super good and tasty, largely due to how amazing their sauces are - we tasted 6 completely different, unique and incredible sauces. They brought free bread to our table with this amazing yellow mustard type sauce to dip it in. We ordered an orange juice, and a banana and coconut juice. For food we ordered the mushroom burger and the vegetable sandwich. I'm not sure of the exact names, but there were 3 burger options and we didn't order the quinoa burger. Both mind blowing. The service was also great. And we got 10% off because we're staying at Kokopelli hostel! Oh and we ordered a loaf of the tomato/onion bread, which was amazing.

Definitely going there again tomorrow.

Pros: 100% vegan, Amazing food, Good prices

INCREDIBLE PLACE - Edit

I kid you not, my friends and I ate here everyday whilst in cusco. The food is incredible and there are so many options. The portions are huge and the pricing is incredible value for the quality and the quantity that you get. I tried almost everything on the menu and was never disappointed. If you are in cusco you definitely have to try this place. The chocolate cake is good, curry, the pineapple juices and the avocado toast were all favourites. Also try out the other green point as both have slightly different menus and are incredible.

Excellent Food - Edit

My husband and I really enjoyed the food. He ordered the mushroom lasagna and hot chocolate. I ordered the quinoa soup and mushroom risotto. Everything was so yummy but the mushroom lasagna was the best we ever had. Highly recommend Green Point to everything visiting Cusco. Great customer service. Great prices. Good foods.

Incredible - Edit

Green Point is not only Cusco-good, or Peru-good, or travel-good, it's one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at. With wonderful variety for the daily menu and awesome desserts, we went basically every day we were in Cusco. I'm going to miss it!

Pros: Cheap, Outdoors seating area, Variety

Cons: It's in Cusco

Good Vegan Food - Edit

I went at Green Point 2 after Green Point 1, the food is good but I prefer Green Point 1 (food and restaurant) the best vegan restaurant ever!

Great vegan food - Edit

This seems to be the second location of Green Point... the first one being at Carmen Bajo 235. I went to the one on Carmen Bajo three times and this one only once. I thought the food was a little better at Carmen Bajo, but since owned by the same person, it's probably just as good. As of May 2015, the lunch is only 10 soles here, compared with 12 soles at Carmen Bajo, and this location is closer to the main square. When you walk in, there are 6 tables in the dining room, and perhaps 20 out back in the open air; some with umbrellas.

You get the salad bar (extra trips to the salad bar are 2 soles each), soup, and the main plate + dessert and drink. Good food, and if all vegan food were as good as at Green Point, more people would be vegans! I just got back to Lima yesterday after being in Cusco for a week, and I already miss the food from Green Point.

Pros: The food is so good, Price reasonable, Nice atmosphere
