A nice spot to stop and have a cup of coffee. The lady that I believe is the owner was just opening up when I got there at 730 and wasn't phased by my lack of Spanish. Made me up an espresso that started the day off right. I also noted she was just closing up at 1130 that night.

Easy and relaxed - it's got a good range of traditional food for an easy budget. Keep it simple and this place delivers. No wifi, but good empanadas! Often busy throughout the day, the locals love it and that's a good sign!

Just ask for a sandwich and you will fall in love with the bread and the ingredients. The service could be better, sometimes it gets slow, but the food is very tasty and good cooked. Its very tipical from Puerto Varas.

They are a klassik here and have super big german cakes. They do not use credit card system wich is AWESOME. The owners are nice but the clerks are awful to give change and politeness are not the drill for them. Always get stuff to go.

We went in just for a snack to keep us going until our evening meal. We had a sandwich to share and I had the apple strudel and my wife the lemon meringue. All were absolutely gorgeous - and 'American' sized portions so you might prefer to share. In fact we were so full we didn't have our evening meal!.... More

Of the best empanadas I've tried, and so well made, they make a whole meal. Sandwichs with thin sliced cooked beef are just divine. Tartar steak, for the raw eaters, is very well made, and quite sharable in size. Very large selection of deserts. Hommish cozy feeling. But payment in cash only.

We went here twice. We had the empanadas and churrasco con pasta which were wonderful. The kuchen was delicious each time we went. I suspect that this is where the "locals" go. We did try to go somewhere else BUT my Chilean wife said "let's just go to Cafe Danes" so... Although there is outside seating, it is also right... More

It's my 4th time at cafe Danes. As always, the homemade mayonnaise joining Churrasco Palta is the best dish. In the other hand the traditional Crudo is from another place of the world. Try it with kunstmann beer Torobayo, perfect.
