The sandwiches and juices were delicious. They also have a long list of different coffee drink (they even do ristretto, something a little unusual in Chile).

On a cold and very wet morning, the little town was deserted and we needed sustenance in the form of hot chocolate. This has to be the best hot chocolate ever and with a piece of cake - perfect. The Aga in the corner pumping out heat as the rain lashed the windows made it a lovely cosy place to... More

We were hoping for coffee and kuchen, but..... They were out of Kuchen so we tried other tasty offerings. We enjoyed our rest and were energized with the tasty treats.

It was lovely to sit by the fire while the rain poured outside. I enjoyed a generous portion of the poppyseed and pineapple cake and a lovely cortado.

Stroll around the lake in Frutillar and you will find this place close to the theater. Ask for one of the lichens and some coffee and you'll be happy. The slices are huge. One is enough for two people They also have a small area for kids to play in the back with toys and a couple of black boards.

We came here in the morning and while the service was quite slow and very laid back, it was definitely worth the wait for our food. The iced tea was very tasty and refreshing and the kuchen is delicious! Other people in the restaurant were also eating some delicous looking, HUGE slices of cake! Great for a sweet snack

We were disappointed to learn that they only accept cash. Chile is the land of credit/debit cards so, with their international clientele, I find it inexcusable that they accept neither.
