July 11, 2019: Chocolateria Ovejitas de la Patagonia, Ushuaia

 

Ushuaia, even during its summer, is a cool, wet and windy city.  My wife and I spent several days here and wandered many of its streets and attractions.

During our exploration we came across this rather cute chocolate and coffee/tea shop, and thought a jolt of warm caffeine and sugar was just what we needed.

We were pleasantly surprised by what we found inside.  A large and beautifully presented selection of sweet treats as nice as any I can recall seeing.  Huge slabs of chocolate and fudge dominated, with bon-bons and a large variety of gift items.

We settled for a huge slab of delicious cake (to share) and nice cups of cappuccino.  We took along a few slices of chocolate and fudge for later, which I'm pleased to say were also very tasty.

As I was researching this post I was a little disheartened to learn that this fine chocolateria has since closed.  Still, I enjoyed the memory and hope you find yourself at least a little tempted by photos of these sweet treats.
