Cajamarca's dining scene pretty fairly matches its roster of hotels: a laid-back selection of excellent-value restaurants, all within easy walking distance of the Plaza de Armas. The city is famous for its desserts and ice cream, and bakeries and cafes stuffed with cakes line the streets. In addition to the restaurants below, Cascanuez Café-Bar, Amalia Puga 554 (tel. 076/366-089) is terrific for either dessert or a full, quick meal. For ice cream, the two best spots are La Cremería, Comercio 964 and Amazonas 741 (tel. 076/362-235), and Heladería Holanda, Amalia Puga 657 (tel. 076/340-113).
