Coffee shop with good eating options, especially sweat tarts, empanadas and sandwiches. Good option when raining or cold weather.

Went there twice in 2 days Great soup, good coffee Had excellent ravioli with bolognese. Tacos are fresh and tasty Crepe with chicken curry was fragrant. Food was lighter and fresher than usual for Argentina - welcome change.

Comfy cafe with a few tables inside and some more outside. Colorful furniture and decoration. Serves cakes and sweets but also very good salads and snacks. We can't forget the lemon pie, it was absolutely delicious!!

Had a pleasant meal here. The beet root soup was lovely on a cold day. Wifi works well. Waitress was a little busy since she was the only one serving. Just need to be patient to get her attention. Price is reasonable for El Chalten. Everything in Patagonia is expensive anyways.

Tacos and veggie soups were a win. Mathilda has its own selection of delicious teas. Wifi is better than on average in El Chalten, too.

Very tasty sweets and the best coffee we found in El Cheltan. The staff are friendly and a nice overall vibe. We didn't try the savoury food but it looked good from what we could see.

I had a veggie taco and a beer and both were really good. :) Relaxed and friendly place right on the main street of amazing El Chalten.

Mathilda has some very nice pastries and teas (and horrible, terrible coffee). It is mostly nice in good weather when you can use the outdoor seating. Inside is noisy and quite cramped, the place really is tiny.
