The app will also allow you to:

  • Make one-click phone calls (on phones).

Cafés, Bars & Drinks

In Peru you’ll find a lot of places that call themselves “restobars.” This is partly a result of the pandemic, when bars were closed and only restaurants allowed to reopen with social distancing requirements. Some bars converted to “restobars” and some closed all together.

Peru grows some extraordinarily delicious coffee but not all cafés serve Peruvian coffee. If you’re a coffee person, ask what kind of coffee a place serves before you order, especially if you prefer tostado mediano (medium roast). The majority of Peruvians prefer tostado oscuro, (dark roast) so that’s what you’re more likely to find, except in places that cater to foreign tourists.
