Britt Café & Bakery Experience

The establishments of Britt Café & Bakery operate under a franchise model where Café Britt assigns its franchisees the rights to use and commercialize the brand characterized by high-quality standards of gourmet coffee and the preparation of premium quality beverages. With the new Britt Café & Bakery, the traditional Chilean cafeteria foods were studied, and new versions were included on the menu like chicken-avocado sandwiches, churrasco, and salmon.

It has a wide range of food and beverages - both coffee and others - operating 24 hours a day and including breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to offer travelers and the public varieties that adapt to their travel time needs while accommodating your individual dietary preferences.

The Britt Café & Bakery is equipped with a suitable adaptation for a "To Go" bar format to carry products and shop for souvenirs, like a self-service option where you order yourself. In addition, table service will be available for sit-down meals. Its atmosphere is enjoyable and warm, with certified baristas who are experts in preparing the perfect cup, a portfolio of pastries of the highest quality, and a versatile menu that varies per season.

"The Britt Café Bakery combines the experience of specialized baristas, the tasting of the best gourmet coffee specialty trait of Café Britt, and the culinary offerings from the highest quality. French pastries are baked daily, and special attention is given to ensure their known characteristic texture and flavor are met. The menu will also offer adaptations of Chilean cuisine, such as pisco-filled chocolates and alfajores filled with Manjar. We want people to learn about coffee and experience the coffee culture during their visit, showing them different methods for preparing this popular drink, such as the French press," explains Atilio Derosas.

Expansion plans

For the first half of 2022, work is underway to open two more Britt Café & Bakery at the Concepción and Punta Arenas airports. Britt Café & Bakery has 14 stores distributed in Chile, Costa Rica, and Peru -a country where it also opened its gourmet cafeteria at the Lima airport in 2020- and announces growth plans in Mexico City for subsequent months. The projection for the end of this year is to add 19 Britt Café & Bakery.


Operations and management at Britt Café & Bakery aim to be highly sustainable and environmentally responsible. From guidelines in the kitchen to optimize the use of resources, and recycling of packaging waste and raw materials, among others.
