Best hot chocolate I've ever had - anywhere

Can't beleive I'm reviewing a cup of hot chocolate, but seriously it was so delicious! Great quirky little cafe. Traveled with my adult son who also enjoyed his coffee here. We kind of just happened upon this place, but I'm so glad we did. They do need to add wifi, though.

Local restaurant situated in the middle of the town. 2 floors with a limited menu. Locals go there for specialty coffees and drinks. We had soup, salad and sandwiches. Average food with good portions. We were on the second floor and the waitress had to climb the stairs several times to serve our drinks and food. Therefore, the service was... More

Staff is young and friendly . Quality of service is homy . Place is cozy . Variety of choice for a good meal is appetizing . Music is quiet and carefully chosen . Prices are average and inviting . Do not miss this friendly coffee shop at the Capital of the Region of Magellan and Chilean Antarctic !

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

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
