the guys here are great - they genuinely seem to enjoy their workplace, which is not entirely common in these areas. While there's plenty of tourist shops etc, not everyone is endeared to serve you - this cafe welcomes you and AND, most importantly, they do GREAT coffee. They also have a select range of boutique teas and pure tabaco... More

We had the American breakfast here (with a discount voucher from our hostel). Best bacon and egg we've had in South America. Fantastic coffee. We came back here for coffee and cake, I had the tiramisu which is slightly pricey but large and delicious. All round, a lovely cafe with very friendly bilingual staff, serving the best coffee and food... More

This caffee is located in the hearth of the town. Best for a good cup of coffee, a dessert and to spent time while it was raining outside 😀 Offers free wifi if you're in for that...

From the breakfast (probably the best I had during my 5-month trip in South America) to the dinner everything is perfect, well prepared and with a great attention to each detail. I love this place and recommend strongly the American breakfast!

We loved both the atmosphere and incomparable food at this restaurant in Puerta Varas. It was such a favorite of ours that we enjoyed meals there every day of our four day stay--either breakfast, lunch, or dinner! We loved the generous portions, the palta for breakfast, the amazing lamb chops and octopus for dinner. They started giving us double portions... More

Stopped here for lunch on a recent visit to Puerto Varas. The food was great. We had the salmon and hake. Good locally brewed beer too. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was lively and fun.
