A cup of coffee sat in the sun on the terrace, served by a very pleasant waiter. What could be more pleasant on a nice sunny day?

I had a huge fresh salad here, along with an amazing hot chocolate. I came here right before closing (oops) and they didn't try to rush me. Friendly service and a good price, too!

We ate at Cafe Mawen our first evening in Puerto Varas and enjoyed a lovely salad and tasty sandwich. The teas, coffees and pastries looked tempting, but we were too busy hiking to have the chance to return.
