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.

We were recommended here by an Italian and his advice proved good. It isn't always easy to find good coffee in Chile but this cafe does serve it.
