Say what? A real French boulangerie in the town below Machu Picchu? Expats were particularly relieved when this actually decent bakery opened in mid-2012 near the bus stop for Machu Picchu. Fresh-baked croissants and baguettes, simple sandwiches and empanadas that can be taken to the ruins (saving mucho compared to the onsite snack bar), and pastries and sweets like coconut flan and tiramisu are available. The owners are socially conscious, too, training locals in the art of baking during two-month courses, and often sending free bread to impoverished rural communities in the region. Note that it's cash only here.
