Looks appealing from outside but staff clearly bored and unsmiling, churros almost inedible and the Spanish speaking table next to me sent theirs back, hot chocolate nothing special, loud dated op music- avoid!

I was looking forward to a nice afternoon snack. Ordered the house hot chocolate drink and strudel. The strudel was cold and the pastry almost uncooked. Worst strudel I've had and worst meal I've had in Chile in an otherwise gastronomically satisfying visit. Hot chocolate was on the sweet side. Will not be back.

Found this small shop and tried their chocolate caliente chocolatta! A must do. Made from real block chocolate. I also got churros (4) and could only eat 3! You can buy handmade chocolates and fudge. The staff are cheerful and helpful. Free wifi. Near the central plaza where the Oficina de Turismo is. Chocolate is on a par with Mamuschka... More

We had desert here and enjoyed the ice cream. There are plenty of choices not only for deserts but they also have sandwiches available. Staff was friendly and helpful. We noticed locals come here as well. Worth the visit while you are in Punta Arenas.

We came to this coffee shop 3 times. Great coffee every time. We always shared an "Ave Palta" (chicken salad & avocado sandwich) and sat near the window watching people. It's on the main road and tons of action to see. They have ice cream and sweets here too and it was 2 thumbs up for both of us.

good attention, but used to be crowded. Try the Chocolate Beverage options including white chocolate cups!

Just off the plaza de armas, this chocolate shop is a small place that is always full. The hot chocolate is excellent and the alfajores are outstanding. There is free wifi too, if you can find a seat.

We had a great time laughing and drinking hot chocolate here. They seem to be a really old establishment which had perfected their craft. The chocolate is finger-licking good. The decor is nice and cozy. They also serve grilled cheese sandwiches that go great with the hot chocolate. A must-go when it's chilly in punta arenas!

Quaint cafe with a lovely atmosphere - you can imagine it would be a lovely place to spend a snowy morning sipping a hot chocolate. Staff could be a little more friendly but the hot chocolates more than make up for it.
