“Amazing... A must if you are in Puerto Varas.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

The place itself is super fresh, clean and cool. The food is great but the desserts are amazing. If you decide to eat here you MUST try the cinnamon roll..it is out of this world.

(During my week in Puerto Varas I have eaten here various times because it was so good)

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Excellent bakery with great sandwiches. There is a good selection of cakes and postres. The list of teas is amazing, especially for South America. They even had Lapsang Souchang, one of my favourite teas and incredibly difficult to find back at home as well. Definitely pop in for lunch here if you're in Puerto Varas, especially if you are wanting a lovely cup of tea!

“Nice Lunch in Nice Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We had their daily special which came as a nice surprise because of our poor Spanish. The brownie for dessert was great.

“Delicious lunch, friendly place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

I had a delicious lunch here (they stop serving food around 3pm but are open until 8 pm for coffee/dessert). Everything is homemade, down to the bread on my sandwich, and they have fresh juices etc. The desserts are beautiful, but I was too full to indulge. Nice atmosphere in an old German house, very friendly staff. It is a about a 10 minute walk from downtown, and is a welcome respite from the very touristy downtown scene.
