Navigating the Carretera Austral can spark quite the appetite and as the sun rises over the quaint, compact mountain town of Coyhaique, you won’t want to get up to much right away. Plus, that grumble in your tummy needs to be seen to first. Lucky for you, there are a number of terrific options to choose from when figuring out what it is you’re craving.

River in Coyhaique

1. Te Quiero Cafe

Cafe, Restaurant, Chilean

Only if it was called ‘Cafe Free Food’ could you find a place more welcoming than somewhere called ‘Cafe I Love You’,’ and you will feel that welcoming feel at your table in this quaint cafe. Enjoy a classic Chilean breakfast of grilled sandwiches overflowing with cheese, fruit cakes, and the most essential portion of a good breakfast: a mouth watering Chilean coffee of the highest quality.

2. Cafe Oriente

Some people need coffee early in order to feel human again, but if you need a big hearty meal first, then Cafe Oriente has the portion sizes for your mountainous appetite. Steak and eggs, sides of fries, beef sandwiches, sausages and more are bound to energize you from brunch throughout the rest of the day and the restaurant is open until 9 so you might even be back for round two later.

3. Cafe de Mayo

Cafe, Restaurant, Chilean, Vegetarian

It is obvious that everything at Cafe de Mayo has been done with care. From the decorating to the food, you will find that Cafe de Mayo loves to cater to their customers. The sandwiches are prepared in front of you, the gnocchi bolognese is prepared in house and perfectly fills you up, and they offer vegetarian options, as well, including veggie crepes. And, of course, a delicious cup o’ Joe.

4. Huevo Bacon

Cafe, Restaurant, Chilean, Spanish

One English word, one Spanish, no punctuation, no conjoining words, simply: Egg Bacon. This restaurant wastes no time letting you know what it specializes in and in case you couldn’t guess, it’s breakfast. Eggs and bacon done in different ways, including on a milanesa (schnitzel style breaded beef). You can get both traditional and unique breakfasts at this hip joint.

5. London Restorant

Previously called Hakim Pub, the renamed London Restorant (purposely spelled incorrecty) is a London themed boutique eatery that will make the travelling Brit feel a little less homesick. Not the typical fried eggs and beans you might expect but delicious wraps, vegetable and chip fry ups, and a proper tea set up that would make the Queen proud.

6. Mamma Gaucha

Cafe, Restaurant, Pizzeria, Chilean

Opening right in the time pocket known as brunch, Mamma Gaucha has unique delicious dishes to try something new including pickled eggplant and poached egg, seafood risotto, smoked salmon and also pizza, and a variety of beers on tap if your delayed brunch becomes lunch.

7. Cafe Holzer Patagonia
