Nain Maggie, Trevelin

179 Perito Moreno
Tel: 54 2945 480232's insider take:

Trevelin, "the village of the mill," is one of a handful of settlements in the Río Chubut valley founded by Welsh nationalists who fled English cultural domination to settle Patagonia's Atlantic coast in 1865. About 80 percent of people in Trevelin are descendents of the original Welsh settlers, and they still speak a pure form of their language. Several teahouses prolong traditions, but the locals' favorite is Nain Maggie, where the tables groan each afternoon with myriad cakes, tarts, scones, and torta galesa, a rich Patagonian fruitcake, all accompanied by steaming pots of strong tea.

Open Wednesdays through Mondays 3:30 to 8 pm.
