Nice view and good wifi. Great way to while away a rainy afternoon. Food looked good, but didn't get to... read more

We had lunch when arriving in Puerto Varas and returned several times for a capuccino (excellent) or sandwiches and salad. It was always busy and we liked spending time there.

This place does the best coffee in the south of Chile but HORRID grumpy waitresses in the morning.

Always busy, this restaurant is comfortable and welcoming. The service is remarkably efficient for Chile and the food very good. Had one of the best veggie burgers I have ever eaten.

Recommend this cafe for a small bite to eat, coffee or drink. It is centrally located in puerto varas. The staff was very friendly, the food was good and the prices were reasonable.

Also has wonderful pastries and delightful outside seating. True Barista style expresso and the benefit of coffee beans to take away, something that can be tough to find in this Nescafe drinking part of the world.
