Kawaq Yaku is a must visit while in Yungay or anywhere in the Callejon de Huaylas. It's one of the few places that has real coffee (no Nescafé around here!) and many different food options which are great.

Delicious American food in Peruvian atmosphere with wifi. Can't beat the prices for what you get. Right on the road to Huascaron.
