There's something about this cafes location with its free wifi that makes it a great place to just chill out for a bit. It has good cake and good food as well as good coffee.

We met another couple for lunch. Lots of choices these days in Pto Varas. They know the owner, so Mawen was their suggestion for a Sat. lunch. Very crowded but we had a corner table that was quite peaceful. We hung out there for an hour and a half with no pressure to hurry up. I enjoyed a delicious cream... More

A cup of coffee sat in the sun on the terrace, served by a very pleasant waiter. What could be more pleasant on a nice sunny day?

If you're running short on time, and don't have the opportunity to visit Frutillar... This place has very good options to replace those famous "kuchens" and fine bakery.

The hot chocolate was average to me. The cake was way too dry for my taste. I had to order a different one (cheesecake, which was decent).

I had a huge fresh salad here, along with an amazing hot chocolate. I came here right before closing (oops) and they didn't try to rush me. Friendly service and a good price, too!

Many of the servers speak English and they offer a menu in English if you need it. They do not serve alcohol. This cafe is a meet... More
