There's a massive Welsh community in Chubut province of Patagonia we had no idea about, so Welsh tea is a popular passtime in Welsh towns like Trevelin, Trelew and Gaiman. This gem is in Trevelin and they make a mean Welsh cake. It's decorated in Welsh style with celtic music playing in the background. A must when visiting the area.

The Freeman family emigrated from Wales to the United States in the late 1800s and then re-emigrated to Patagonia a little later. Their final migration was from the Atlantic coast of Welsh Patagonia to Cwm Hyfryd (The Beautiful Valley) in the Andes in the early 1990s. Their hotel, Hotel Perla, was the first Tea House in Trevelin and Nain Maggie... More

The tea houses run in some Patagonian towns and villages by the descendants of the Welsh settlers are well worth a visit. This one here is a pleasant place where you can enjoy a tea accompanied by a nice and rich selection of cakes. Nothing to die for as far as cake quality is concerned, especially if compared to the...

as a result of the Welsh colonization there is the richest teahouses of Patagonia with their English knowledge with Argentinean twist. After tea you do not need dinner (lol) because the abundance of scones and cakes is superlative

We arrived for a tea with a couple of friends who knew the place. We did not expect this so good house at this small town. Every bite was unforgettable. The service was perfect and the staff were very kind. Being in this area, go there.

Make sure that you're hungry; the tea, bread and butter with jam, scones and amazing cakes are all of excellent quality.

Tea service is wonderful. It includes a big teapot, several slices of cake, such as cream pie, black cake, fresh baked bread and home-made jam, just like Nain Maggie used to serve her family (they maintain her recipes). It's Trevelin's oldest tea house.

We stayed for a few days in Esquel with our friends and on one occasion we caught the local bus from there to Trevelin to visit this little Welsh migrant village. Maggie's was in the Lonely Planet so we thought we would visit for some high tea! Excellent choice and made our afternoon visit a well entrenched memory. Thanks

OK - I'm biased. I'm Welsh. I've always wanted to go to Patagonia and speak Welsh. Here it was possible, with maybe half in Spanish too to compare recipes for bara brith. Nain Maggie is a tea room with a focus on the history of Granny Maggie who came from Wales to Trevelin and is staffed by her descendants. There... More
