Reasonably priced eatery. As the name suggests, specializing in waffles. Delicious creations, both for meals and desserts. Does not accept credit cards. But in addition to the Argentine Peso, they did also accept US Dollars as well as currency from Chile, And Brazil with great competitive exchange rates. Would definitely return if ever back in the area.

You can vie wit as a desert place or for a meal. They offer any kind of waffle you can imagine and they are great and cheap. Heaven for kids and for anyone with a sweet tooth.

It's a simple restaurant with nice service. We were there twice, in fact, because we liked the waffles (Napolitana and Dulce de leche). Worth a visit.

This is a small coffeeshop/restaurant in El Chalten. El Chalten is a charming small village where people flock to prepare for or rest from some of the most spectacular hikes in that area of Patagonia. Unlike most other restaurants in this fun town, La Wafleria stays open nearly each day, all day during the peak season. We loved their coffee,... More

My husband and I ate here several times during our stay in El Chalten - and we were never disappointed! This place does have a younger vibe (lots of college-aged backpackers, it seemed), but we didn't care! The savory waffles are delicious (we had a ham and cheese waffle, as well as a pork and apple waffle, which was seasoned... More

This place makes a mean chocolate waffle with whipped cream and an incredible waffle with fresh fruit, ice cream and chocolate. We chose it for dessert while the innumerable Israeli backpackers seem to prefer it for its inexpensive savory waffle meals.
