Hiking Patagonia’s heavenly peaks takes stamina, strength… and chocolate. Puerto Natales serves as a gateway to the breathtaking Patagonian fjords and Torres del Paine National Park. It’s a compact little city that’s easy to walk and has a surprisingly large (for its size) number of local shops and restaurants.
While exploring the port city of Puerto Natales in Southern Chile, we stumbled upon Patagonia Dulce. In addition to serving a wide array of hot chocolates, Patagonia Dulce also has a decadent display case that chocoholics and sweets fiends will enjoy marauding.
Well dear reader, we selflessly decided we should take one for the team and taste test a few of these yummy specimens for the greater good. Being the pragmatic people we are, we eased into bonbon debauchery by ordering just a few of their chocolate covered cookies. They were as delicious as they look.
If you don’t gobble them all down in one fell swoop, the chocolate covered cookies make great gifts for folks back home. The layered Chilean cakes filled with raspberry and dulce de leche might be a bit more your speed if chocolate isn’t your jam.
Locals often swing by to order a cup of coffee. (In fact, a Puerto Natales resident recommended Patagonia Dulce to us.)
Deciding what you’re going to eat just might be the toughest part of visiting this cute little cafe.
Whether you’re looking to hide from the chilly Patagonian winds or you’re in need of a chocolate overdose stat, Patagonia Dulce likely has the antidote you’re searching for.
