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 on-site 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 2-month courses, and often sending free bread to impoverished rural communities in the region. Note: It’s cash only here.
