Mawen Cafe had nice cakes, excellent strudel, good service, reliable wifi and a great view. The decor was unremarkable, and the prices fairly high, but the Colombian arabica coffee (cortado) was truly excellent - easily the best coffee we've had in Chile.

Had a decent sandwich and chocolate milk. The view from outside is breathtaking. Very centrally located. Ambience is good. Quite clean Cafe. Only disappointing thing is service, hospitality is totally missing.

The hot chocolate was average to me. The cake was way too dry for my taste. I had to order a different one (cheesecake, which was decent).
