Very cozy coffee shop, yummy food but they need to improve their customer service. It takes a long time to get your order. Also no wifi.

We stumbled across this cafe just after arriving in Punta Arenas. We were v jet lagged and just wanted a light bite before crashing. Staff were lovely, food tasty and good value. Went back for lunch another time and just as good. If it's cold this is a great place to warm up. Quirky decor but homely feel.

We stopped into Cafe Tapiz and ordered banana, orange, and carrot juices that were excellent. The prices are quite high, but the atmosphere is calm and fun, and it's easy to walk from the cafe along the waterfront.

We stopped here while walking around the downtown. We wanted a coffee and this was close to the main plaza. We arrived at 14:30 on a Tuesday and it was packed. We ordered 4 cortados. Service was a little slow, but the coffee was very good. It came with button sized chocolates that were spectacular. The interior of the restaurant... More

Friendly with good honest food and drink. Mostly sandwiches but there was excellent soup on the board.

Warm, cosy and a welcome retreat from the winds of Punta Arenas. A perfect stop for tea, coffee and cake. Huge range of herbal teas, and also offers lovely light lunches. Friendly staff and slightly quirky decor. Made me feel at home (I come from Brighton in the UK). So great to find somewhere like this at the end of... More

Stopped in on a rainy days in Punta Arenas to warm up and have lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the various lunch options. We opted for the veggie burger (special of the day) and a veggie salad. The food was good, and the portions were sizable. The place had a great ambiance, especially in wet weather. Prices provide a... More
