My wife and I love third wave coffee and spend way to much time searching for the local rosters and baristas in every city. While this shop is neither of the two, we tried 8 cups of coffee in Puerto Veras and found this to be the smoothest cup and and also a menu full of lattes and cappacino twists.... More

I came here a couple of times and got a few different things. The lemon pie was a bit sweet but overall really yummy! A good one was the brownie cake with nuts and meringue. It wasn't too sweet. But my absolute favorite was the peach cobbler! If they have the cobbler on display, you must get it!!!!!!!!

Every holiday I find a cafe for my morning fix while the family is still asleep. In Puerto Varas my chosen spot is El Barista. Good coffee, prompt friendly service and a fresh "media luna" (croissant). Excellent.

Probably the best coffee in PV and great staff & very nice, clean premises & my latte came with a love heart ❤️ but again I'm really not sure if they know what 'espresso' is.

This was one of our favorite places in Chile. The cappuccino was perfect, as were the salads with smoked trout- best eatery in the whole lake district, so far as we were concerned.

Haven't posted a review in awhile - liked this place so much wanted to drop in a quick review. We had an excellent dinner, sitting in the small outdoor space out front. The staff was so friendly, the food was great - and a musician sat out front with a guitar and sang for the crowd. Such a great atmosphere.... More

If you need a good coffee, some time out to relax, plan next stage of your trip, escape here! Wonderful food and coffee and teas! Good internet, not quiet, can get noisy, but great music and vibe!

I have eaten here four times in the last week and have kept returning because of the excellent coffee, friendly staff, efficient service and fantastic meals. The menu is not extensive especially for a vegetarian but tonight I chose the Sorrentino plata which proved to be a ravioli that was divine. Previouly had the vegetarian burger which was also delicious.... More
